Last night, we aired a "Seven's Hero" that touched so many of you. It was about a local photographer by the name of Kam Taylor who offers free portrait sittings to families who are dealing with a terminal illness. That way, they have the memory of being a whole family for a lifetime.
I had the wonderful opportunity to meet one of those families when we featured Kam. The Bruggers (Eric and April) lost a young son - Caleb - two years ago, but before he passed they were fortunate enough to meet Kam and have a photography session with her.
This is one of their favorites:
It was an emotional story to be a part of, because we also found out that April Brugger was diagnosed with a deadly heart condition - and isn't sure how much time she has left with her husband and daughters. Recently, Kam offered her another session with her girls - so that they will always have that memory with Mom.
This is her favorite shot from that sitting:
April is so strong and so brave... it was a joy to meet her and just to know her. This is the best part of my job, getting to meet people that change my life. April is one of them... she cherishes every day, that's something we all need to do.
