At the @cheetah @procamps I was sitting next to a lady and she mentioned after I thought she was talking to me “oh sorry I was doing a voice text, I shake when I text from chemotherapy. Hope I can get some good pictures” ....... it was only right that I took some photos for her and her son! I would have felt bad knowing she didn’t get some decent photos of the camp to look back on and I was going to snapping photos!!!! I texted her the photos and she was really happy to have them!!!! @canonusa #can#canon5dmarkiii & #canong7xmarkii #canon70200mm #experience #football #footballcamp #procamps #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephoto #blackandwhitephotography #kan#kan#kansasfs #tyreekhill #kansas #kansascity #kansascityphotographer #kck #peoplescreatives #visualvoicemag #visualsoflife #igkc #igkansascity#huffpostgram #thecoolhunter #hbouthere #featuremeinstagood #canon #teamcanon #passionpassport #moodygrams #streetdreamsmag

As the years pass since both @justinfresh1 and I began our journey into parenthood, holidays like Mother’s & Father’s Day seem to get more and more confusing. One would think that time is now a balm on our wounds, and that the loss of Xander doesn’t cut as deep with our two beautiful rainbow boys coloring our world every day. We got a happy ending of sorts. And in so many ways—-that IS truth. - - On the other hand, I feel like the space between is also a cruel reminder that like forgotten keepsake boxes in the basement, X and all that he is + was, will fade to gray. You’ve all heard his tale. What’s left to say? But at almost five years in, more than ever do I want to shout from the rooftops about how his death still affects our daily life. It’s a constant delicate dance of celebration + grief. We think about those final moments, every. day. - - I can’t even begin to imagine what being a loss dad is like. Men are taught to be fiercely strong, and they have this innate need to fix and protect their tribe. What happens when they can’t do that? To be able to move on from loss without skipping a beat, it must take a toll. Men grieve too. Differently than mamas, but they do. - - Another Father’s Day has almost passed us. Your 5th. I have endless words for what you mean to us, but I’ll simply say...Thank you my love for being fiercely strong enough to enter into fatherhood through tragedy, and then walk through the trenches with me until we safely found our rainbows. Thank you for continuing to guide us, especially when my life compass isn’t working. Today was such a lovely day celebrating you, and I know X was with us (the second photo tho!) Cheers babe! Oh we love you so.
