A Father's Heartbreak

This time last year I was gearing up take maternity & newborn pictures for some sweet friends of mine. They were so excited to grow their little family & I was so excited to get the opportunity to photograph them growing. On November 23, 2015, Michael Titus Hohfeld entered into this world sleeping. This photo is one of many I took that night & shows how much love and sorrow was in the room that night. This picture holds three generations and the love shared between father, son and grandfather. As a photographer, this was both the most difficult & most rewarding event I've ever had to photograph. I am so honored and blessed that I was chosen to be a part of their world that night. And I am honored that I was able to give them the gift of such treasured memories of their sweet Titus.
