I recently had the privilege to meet an amazing family. They contacted me and asked if I would be able to do a memorial photo session with them on the beaches of Sanibel Florida. They lost their son Sam at a six years old from cancer. Sam was diagnosed with rhabdomyosaroma. He was better know as Superman Sam for reasons obvious of this brave young man. He was brave and lived his last days with courage as should we all. It is amazing what you learn from children that go through life trials as he.
This was a one of the most difficult sessions I have every photographed. I have a son the same age and couldn't imagine the grief that they must be going though. Many times during the session we hugged and cried together. Everyday I pray for them to have the strength to overcome the grief. Although I would never expect anyone to overcome such a loss. This blog is as a memorial for Sam. After spending my time with the family I feel like I know him. His twin sister Ava is a very brave and bright young lady. She has the strength that many of us only hope for.
