God Bless this family and count our blessings for every moment we have to be with our loved ones. The best thing about being a photographer is that we get to use our camera as a journal and keep our memories alive.

  22. Amazing pictures and amazing little boy to hang in there to meet his sister. I cannot imagine having this happen, but they will have your precious images to hang in their home to keep these memories and to show sis how much her brother loved her. I am a firm believer in making time to take pics….So proud that this family did. Great job capturing these precious memories.

    Comment by Becky — November 17, 2010 @ 6:42 pm

  24. Oh Katie, what a wonderful treasure you created for this family. I have been watching Rex’s website for quite some time. Our hearts ache for Rex’s parents, grandparents and extended family, but he is now surrounded by glory and perfect beings. The picture where Rex and Anna are laying together, his eyes are closed and her’s are open, looks like she is communicating with the man upstairs and preparing Rex at the same time! Priceless

    Comment by Laurie — November 17, 2010 @ 7:06 pm

  41. Oh my. I could look at these photos all night. They are such an enormous reminder of how extremely precious life is. To lose a loved one is heart-breaking, but to lose a loved one so soon and so young, is unfathomable.

    My heart goes out to them completely. You did an amazing job.

  46. What a story of great sadness but also tremendous inspiration. Most any of our issues seem pitifully tiny in comparison to what has gone on with this child and family.
    How can a little boy fight such a fight so young, or understand that pain and suffering? And for the parents to watch their child go through it and not be able to take it away.
    You are all heros, plain and simple. To have one child leave you as another miracle of life enters your life….two extremes at the same time. The best and worst for any parent.
    Anna will know her brother forever because of these photos, done so beautifully. They will always mean so much…the brother she barely met and never knew…but you can almost feel them touching just in the photos. She will have those moments with him all her life now.
    Truly, our prayers and love do go out to all of you. And especially brave little Rex, whose pain and weariness are over. We pray his parents can remember his strong soul and brightness, and it will help ease their sorrow in the months and yeas to come. Even though you may know us, hundreds if not thousands–stand still when we heard and saw your story. Thanks to all of you for sharing such a sacred moment.

  47. Heart is broken for this family. Can’t get them off my mind. I just can’t imagine how difficult this journey will be for them with their new life without their sweet Rex. Prayed so much for them this week and hope they are blessed with wonderful friends who overfill their lives with love right now.

  48. When I look at your site, I always scroll to the bottom and work my way up from the last post I read…so this post really caught me off guard this morning. My heart is breaking for this family. What a very special and brave little boy. With three children of my own, I just can’t even imagine what this family is going through. I pray they are brought much strength through their journey of finding peace again. What a priceless gift of photos and memories you were able to give them Kate.

I am sure, when this little girl grows up….she will cherish these more than words can even express. I know I would. What an honor you have been given. Beautiful images and beautiful family. Off to dry my face!

    Comment by Monica Martin — November 19, 2010 @ 3:58 am

  69. Oh Kate, I am sitting here wondering what to say. I am so sad for them. I can’t imagine watching a healthy child just wither away. And I am so sorry for you. I know you love them and are probably beside yourself. As for the pictures, they are priceless. I can’t get over the one that Anna is looking at Rex. I am not sure if his eyes are closed or if he is looking at her, but either way it is amazingly perfect. Both so close to the other side. You gave them little pieces of their heart in perfect pictures for the last time and you did such a beautiful job.

The picture of Rex holding his moms hand is so sweet, just exactly how she’ll want to remember his little hand in hers. I also love the ones of rex and baby sister in white..Both so very close to heaven. Very emotional and beautiful pictures, thanks for sharing. My heart goes out to this sweet family.

  82. I cried so much. This family is so courageous and I pray for them. You captured wonderful moments that little Anna will also be able to look at when she is older. I love all the photos but especially the one where they are all together and they are watching little Anna sleeping. To me, this photo is saying that little Anna can now take her nap because she was just in her big brother’s arms who made it all okay and for her not to worry.

  98. As a mother to my own 3 year old (who is only 2 months younger than Rex), I cannot even imagine the heartache. I literally was bawling and sobbing through these pictures as well as following their story. My heart goes out to his family. This makes me want to squeeze my own son a little tighter tonight. I’m so glad they were able to get some beautiful pictures with their family before his sweet spirit was welcomed back to heaven.

  100. Lovely pictures. I am glad you were able to help them remember Rex through these awesome pictures. I’m sure his baby sister will forever cherish these when she gets older. My heart goes out to the beautiful family.

  102. Somehow I overlooked the posts around this time. I am utterly teary and heartbroken! I looked at the photos more intimately and saw the little angel in Rex as he looked at his sister with love, especially in his white suit! I truly believe that little Anna has been appointed a special guardian angel for the rest of her days. And to mom and dad, I pray for you from the bottom of my heart. I hope you find the strength and peace to keep Rex alive…through stories, videos and photos (thanks to peekaboo). May God bless you now and forever.

  103. I stumbled across your work on youtube, actually. (On how to pose a baby with their chin in their hands….which was fantastic, btw)

    And just read this story….oh my!! I’m no crier, but this had me in tears. What a beautiful, priceless moment to capture photos of this sweet family together for just a little longer.
    The picture of the brother and sisters hands together puts a lump in my throat, it’s just beautiful!
    A price tag couldn’t be put on a session like this. Simply beautiful. <3
    I will be praying for this precious family!!
