Becki & Darren

I've known Becki a LONG time! Some of my first photo sessions were ones that she hired me. She is one of the most selfless and sweetest people I know. I hadn't heard from her in a while and it was because she met the love of her life! But he has Huntingtons Disease. I was heartbroken for her. She called to tell me that she wanted a photo session with the two of them. It needed to be soon because he has lost the ability to smile. We scheduled a few times but it was just too cold and Darren had gotten a cold and couldn't be out in the cold weather. Well, the stars finally aligned and we scheduled and it all worked out. We worked quickly and I loved to see how much Becki loved this man. I am so happy she got to meet him and that he was able to have her in his life. I wish the best for them and will fill their numbered days with much love. She cried tears of happiness and gratefulness when she saw their picture gallery. I am glad I was able to do this for her. THIS is why pictures are so important! To capture people as they truly are and to be remembered.
I caught this picture of Becki warming Darren's hands. She says she hates her hands (I can relate!) but I think this photo is so telling about their relationship.


  1. What a beautiful relationship! I hope they have many more happy days together!!

  2. Oh my goodness how special for them to have these beautiful photos! So so sad, but you can definitely tell how much he loved her with his eyes!

  3. Thank you Missy. The pictures are amazing. We are greatful for you in capturing some of our greatest moments.
