JJ :: One Year!

This little guy…. <3

A lot of you may already know his and his daddy’s (my brother) story.  I wrote about his story in my post when I did his newborn session in my old blog (that got hacked and is no longer alive 🙁 ).

So, just a quick fill-in for those that don’t know his story….

This is my little nephew, JJ.

He was born on June 16, 2016, which is the same day his mother became his guardian angel.

Yes, his mother – my BEAUTIFUL, compassionate, thoughtful, amazing sister-in-law died during childbirth from an Amniotic Fluid Embolism (AFE), leaving my oldest brother a widow with a newborn son.

Through the complications of the labor and birth, JJ was left without oxygen for a few minutes and was expected to have some complications throughout his life – anything from health issues to brain injury.

As miracles surely happen, a miracle happened –  his guardian angel mother was watching over him, and he came out of the hospital with no signs of brain injury or health issues!

He is now a happy, healthy, busy toddler at 18 months old (this session was done last summer when he turned one).

JJ, my brother Jared, and their guardian Angel, Sharry have made quite the impact on many people, from Jared & Sharry’s love story, adventures, and bucket list, to the tragic event that have brought so many people together in support of them.


If you want to learn more, or follow their story and progress, follow their blog, – a blog that Sharry started and Jared is continuing.
