Caroline’s story is a true testimony in the power of prayer. I learned of Caroline’s story when my daughter’s Pre-K teacher shared her post accident status update via Facebook. I followed her story and learned she was a teen who had suffered a traumatic brain injury from a skateboard fall in the summer of 2017, July 4th to be exact. My first thought was my 14 year old daughter (13 at the time) riding as a passenger on a motorized scooter without a helmet. I immediately shared the story with her and told her not to ride unless a helmet was worn. Of course, her response was “helmets are ugly” and “I’m going to look stupid” but thankfully she has done what I’ve asked of her.
A few months later, Caroline’s mom posted a “First Day of Senior Year” picture of Caroline sitting in her hospital bed. I was compelled to reach out to her mom, being that I specialize in senior portraits. In November, I had the privilege of capturing Caroline along with her best friend, Frances, who was at the scene of the accident. These two girls have a friendship that will make your heart smile. I loved everything about them! Meeting and photographing Caroline reminded me of how precious life is and how quickly it can be taken when we least expect it. Being able to give this family memories of their beautiful fighter is one of the reasons I love what I do!
