Las Vegas, NV
Sometimes there are just families that melt your heart, and this is one of them. I have known Jen and her beautiful family for several years now, and I have watched/documented many a milestone moment for them. I can say without doubt, they are some of the best people I have ever met.
Through struggles, their family has truly bonded. Their love is present in everything they say and do, and I believe it is all because of their amazing little man.
You see...the handsome, smiling boy in the photos below is autistic...almost non-verbal, yet he is perfect. A young man that knows what he wants, and knows just how much he is loved, even if he can't always express it.
I am honored beyond reason to have been able to photograph the Eckerdt family again. To watch them all grow and change, yet still hold tight to each other. It's simply beautiful, and I hope to capture more moments like this for them for years to come.
