I am not sure why I took so.very.long. to finish proofing this session. Carmen and Lauren even have a new baby sister now (her mama did not even know she was pregnant when I took these photographs.. shame on me!). I have a very hard time thinking about mortality.. especially when it comes to children. Carmen’s parents, Lana and Dave, face the mortality of beautiful Carmen on a daily basis, and they do it with abundant grace. They are, quite simply, amazing and inspirational.
