It was January of this year. My brother & I planned an astronaut themed photo shoot 2 days before he passed. Tomorrow is not promised. I couldn’t fathom taking pictures without him, or even picking up my camera. Who could possibly understand my crazy ideas like he did? We had so many adventures together & I will cherish every one of them. The one thing Isaiah would have never wanted was for me to stop creating. I could imagine him laughing at me being a dork running around in a space suit & for the first time in a while, it made me laugh. I did this shoot with my wonderful mother, my biggest encourager. In this life there is pain, loss and uncertainty. Yet, still so much beauty in the midst of it. I love creating, behind the camera and in front of it. I hope as an artist I can capture the beauty that does remain and share it with others. Because there is still hope.
