Believe me when I say that this was an emotional night for everyone. (Hurricane of small child meltdowns, anyone? No?)
I was so honored to be asked to photograph the Kanns. They came from all over the country to support one branch of their beautiful family as they celebrate the anniversary of a little one who left them far too soon. Little Eli was represented by a stuffed animal of his– an adorable monkey in overalls with a ski cap. It was easy to imagine his place in the group shots and I loved watching the littles snuggle and play with him as we took a walk around a lovely lake in South Minneapolis.
Thank you so much for allowing me to be a small part in such a hugely special day. I feel truly blessed to have met this amazing family.
