Last weekend I photographed these guys and their loved ones. We scheduled this session a few months ago and little did we know that one precious son and brother would be missing in these photos.

Brandon Brown died tragically in an accident a few weeks ago and is dearly missed by his parents, brothers,grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins. Although I hardly knew him, it is obvious from the stories I heard that he was caring and loved his family very much.

I am thankful that I was able to create these memories for this family. I am inspired by their faith in God’s promise for Good. In times of grief and sadness I always refer to my favorite bible verse from Jeremiah: For I know the plans I have for you “declares the Lord”, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)

Brown family, I pray that God grant strength and peace to you through this difficult time, and to every person Brandon touched.
