Again, I sit here not sure what to say or how to convey how much this has changed me.  I’m not sure I can.  It is my hope I have done this family justice, that I have brought something real and genuine to them.  This is a slideshow I put together for Alex and his family.  It showcases only a few of the over 200 images from their session, but it tells their story.  You can read more about how I came to meet this wonderful family here.

My Name is Alex

Alex, thank you for letting me capture your beautiful family and for inspiring me to live in this moment and to be thankful for the blessings that surround me.  I only spent one morning with your family, but you have touched my life and changed me.  I am so thankful for this gift of photography.  Giving is good.  We are praying for you Alex.  You and your entire family.  Our thoughts and prayers are with you this week as you head back to Houston. We hope you return home with a spot on the transplant list.

I would also like to thank Balmorhea for allowing us to use their music to help us tell Alex’s story.
