The Gakowski Family...

"What are you going to do with all that dark?"

"Find a way to glow in it."

Meet the Gakowski family. I met them around 10 months ago at a family wedding I photographed. As a wedding photographer, you only really catch a small glimpse of people's lives... just like people only see one aspect of me and my life. 
Well... in that small glimpse, its hard to see the battles that people are facing - especially on happy occasions. But this family were - and are - facing an enormous battle. And even in the face of great adversity, they still managed to come and hang out with me and have me paparazzi them, and they were still full of smiles and cheer. 
Absolute Champions. 
If you want to hear about their journey, you can read about it here:…/dear-friends…
To the Gakowski family:
I pray the days turn into weeks, and the weeks turn into months, and the months turn into years. 
I pray that the joy you find living in the now, far outweighs the unknown burdens of the immediate and seemingly daunting future.
May peace be with you, fully and completely. 
I have no more words, only love. xx
