I love this family. Coty and I have been SO blessed by this entire family and we really mean that! We photographed Jess & Christina’s wedding along with 3 of their cousins. It was Tracy & Tony’s 35th wedding anniversary so their kids planned a family photo for this summer. I’ve known this family since I was in college and they are a hoot. I love hearing Tony laugh and how loud they get at weddings, its just the best. This family is so tight knit and in good times and in bad they are so close together! I loved getting to meet Christina’s little girl and Jessica’s sweet boy. Getting to see our couples start families is just the best part of this job. I got a message from Teeny to call her and I was putting a baby to bed so I texted her and she gave me the news. Jessica & Joe’s son Nick was in the hospital and he was not doing well. I won’t disclose any details but as the details came out across my phone, tears came rolling down my face. Nick is just 2 weeks younger than my boys and he is just the cutest. I hopped on my computer and edited those photos so quickly because if maybe these photos would bring some joy into this very hard time in their lives, then I’ve done as much as I can do. I met Teeny that evening and she told us what was going on and Coty and I both cried right there in the starbucks parking lot. I’ve literally been praying for him every moment I think of him! I have a very soft spot for babies in the hospital. Its not normal to see your baby in a hospital bed with cords everywhere and beeping and having to press a button to see your child, its just like having an outer body experience. Coty and I are praying for the entire family especially Jess, Joe & Nick. God is in control and I am BEYOND grateful for that. If you have a moment today, please pray for the Nick and the Kapcar family!
