Endless Love {Brisbane Children’s Photographer}

As parents there isn’t much we wouldn’t do to help our kids…most would go to the ends of the earth if the need arose. Most would agree that you indeed live a lucky life if there is never a need for you to reach out for those ends, in order to protect your children. That’s what makes the parents of these children special. They will do anything for their children and the sad part is, they have already had to go beyond where you or I will ever need to.

Little James, nearly 6, is suffering from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy,¬†an insidious gender-linked (in 99% of cases) muscle-wasting disease that leaves little boys (and in some cases, girls) unable to walk before they make their teenage years. As there is no cure, Duchenne results in premature death by late teens/early adulthood in 100% of cases. You can read more about James’ story and his parents, Julian and Sharryn’s, quest to find a cure for their little boy here and here. Perhaps if you see fit, you can lend a helping hand.

James, Charlyse (nearly 5), Saraya (2 years) and Patrick (6 months) were just the most wonderful children to photograph. I know I say that all the time (and it’s always true) but they really were. So full of smiles, spirit and fun – just the way I like them!

Generally, it’s hard with a session encompassing four children to go light on in the blog department and of course thats no different in this case. I offer no apologies!

Meet James, Charlyse, Saraya and Patrick…

Natalie Davies - Beautiful, beautiful shots for the family. My mother suffers from a muscle wasting disease called Motor Neurones Disease. I know the struggles my mum has to deal with and she is almost 60 so for this adorable little boy to have to deal with a similar disease is heart breaking. I wish the family all the very best and lets hope a cure is just around the corner!

Sharyn - Nicole, as the parents of these children we know how hard it must have been to get shots of all of them on the same day. I know how much trouble I have just getting general snapshots of them! However, you have done a wonderful job in the limited time you had with us (once we all got our swim, gossip, and lunch out of the way) and Julian & I are just stoked with the end results. THank you again, and we can’t wait to see the prints when they arrive. xxxxx

Karen Pfeiffer - Nicole, these are absolutely beautiful photographs that capture an absolutely beautiful family so very well. I simply can not comprehend what this little man goes through each and every day (not to mention his family also). My prayers are with the family that a cure is found before it’s too late, not only for James but also for other children living with this. What an utterly beautiful family. Job well done, Nicole xx
