Day Two – Mercy

Yesterday we had the honor of beginning to photography a family with thirteen children. Nine of them have been adopted and have special needs. Their home was destroyed in the hurricane and they all now live in two FEMA trailers in their front yard. They have quite an amazing story of having love and mercy on those children that would likely not be adopted by anyone else. It was a very humbling morning. Enjoy these two pictures of the mom with the two one year olds. The little girl, Mercy, turns one today. The love and compassion of this family was amazing to document. It was a gift to give back their legacy after losing almost all of their photographs in the storm.
