Weeks002 Exist In Photos

 

The last two days have been heartbreaking and overwhelming for our family. Yesterday my family lost this gorgeous woman, wife, mother. My cousin Desiree Strout was just 28 and on her way to give birth to her third baby (and first son) when they hit a patch of black ice and their truck rolled. She was killed in the crash and her baby boy is still in critical condition. Her husband, Harry Weeks, is in stable condition but has a long road ahead of him in terms of his emotional and physical recovery. Their oldest daughter, (8) who was with them, suffered minor injuries and was released later in the day, and their other daughter (2 1/2)  was with family and safe.

Losing Desiree has been a complete shock to our entire family, a family that, regardless of distance and time spent without seeing each other, has always been very close. My brother said it best when he said “Our family is nothing if not strong and united. When something happens to one of us, it happens to us all.” – We have all rallied together to try and build as much support as we can for Desiree’s husband Harry, so that he can recover and adjust to life without his wife. 

You never know when a loved one will leave you. Never EVER miss the opportunity to record your or their time on this Earth. Desiree’s babies are going to grow up without her, but she understood how important it was to document their family and her love for them, so they’ll always at least have these photos.

The photos below are a combination of a family session that we did in 2013 and then her maternity photos with her second child in 2015. Unfortunately, we were not able to update their family photos before we lost her. 

There are multiple benefit events being coordinated to help support the family, and we have also set up a GoFundMe for those who are unable to participate or wish to donate more. You can find the GoFundMe event here: https://www.gofundme.com/loving-wifemother-lost-too-soon

Urban Legends Series: Killer in the Window

Killer In the Window 093web 900x600 Urban Legends Series: Killer in the Window

 

“A 15-year-old girl was babysitting her little sister while her parents went out to a party. She sent her sister off to bed around 9:30 while she stayed up to watch her favorite T.V. show.

She sat in her recliner with a blanket and watched until it went off at around 10:30 after it went off she turned around in her seat to face the big glass door and watch the snow fall. She sat there for about 5 minutes or so when she noticed a strange man walking toward the glass from outside. She sat there staring as he stared at her back. He started to pull a shiny object out from his coat. Thinking it was a knife she immediately pulled the covers over her head. After about 10 minutes she removed the covers and saw that he was gone. She then called 911 and they rushed over.

They examined outside for any footprints in the snow, but there were none to be found. Two cops walked into her house to tell her the bad news and they noticed a trail of big wet footprints leading up to the chair where she was sitting.

The cops came to their conclusion and immediately told the girl she was very lucky because the man she saw staring at her was not standing outside, but he was standing behind her and what she saw was his reflection.”

Legend has it, that meeting your doppelganger is a sign of trouble to come. They usually represent an oncoming illness, death or other tragedy. 

In this session, my lovely model Lizzy and I worked together to bring about the eery feeling one might encounter when meeting their “double”.
