Little Heroes: Lani Forbes
I got a heart wrenching call from a nurse at St. Lukes, yes, she was crying. She asked if I was available to photograph this family. Mother is 34 years old, married with three small children. The first phone call was to come in soon. I loaded up all my equipment, jumped in the shower and was ready when they were. The kids weren’t quite there yet so I waited until they were ready for me. The next call was, please hurry! Okay!! I sped a little and I parked illegally but got unloaded and up to the room to capture these memories for this family. It was heartbreaking you guys! This beautiful wife and mother of three passed away about 10 minutes after I left. I truly believe she hung on until we were done so her family could have these images. Little heroes is gifting this family four sets of prints in beautiful packaging so that each of the kids has beautiful printed keepsakes and her husband has one as well. I so wish we could have done these pictures sooner but this is better than nothing. The nurse that called on Little Heroes was brave to offer these services to this family and the family wanted them.
