Do you know how I knew Rocky was about to die? He laid down all the time and his ruff got quieter.
— Luke, age 6

Working on my portfolio this month I've come across a number images that steal my breath. My mom and our Rocky dog being the hardest to look through. They died within three days of each other, both bodies riddled with cancer, both taking a piece of our family with them.

My Luke was to my side as we browsed through my first film scans from 2011, from which some of my all time favorite photos were birthed. When he spoke I felt my heart melt a bit. Something so precious, so real, and so honest - my favorite thing about children.
