Little Duncan was born into so much love, love that he may not truly understand until he’s older. His family suffered unimaginable tragedy before he was born but their strength, especially his beautiful mom’s strength, is inspiring and eye-opening. All the women who are helping take care of him call themselves a team, and it’s no wonder why. They are giving Duncan and his mom the most valuable things of all – their love and their time.
Duncan is so lucky to have this team supporting him. Their love is undeniable.
Duncan’s mom is a painter, a very talented one, and her work is all over their beautiful home. Duncan loves staring at the paintings. So I just love the juxtaposition of mom and Duncan with this beautiful painting. Even though we can’t see her face, the woman in the painting has strength and grace – strength and grace that is a reflection of mom.
It was a humbling honor to photograph this little guy and his family. I hope that my own emotions about this resilient family were conveyed because that would be my greatest gift to them.
