Moments That Stick

For the past two years, as I’ve photographed dozens of siblings for my Sibling Revelry Project, I’ve been continually surprised and inspired by our time together. Lots of the siblings I met made me nod with recognition or consider something in a new way. Many made me laugh out loud and a couple even shocked me. But none of them gave me goosebumps like the last three siblings I featured.

These kids, y’all. The oldest is a sweet 12-year-old boy; next is his funny and smiley 9-year brother; and finally there’s the 4-year-old sister, who is charming and brave despite a brutal health diagnosis.  What struck me most when I met them—and what I hope shows in the images and interviews—was their natural tenderness and palpable sincerity. They are wise, beautiful children. Meeting them and talking about their relationship was a sacred experience that I won’t forget.

If you haven’t seen their story, I encourage you to go right now. And if you read it and want to learn more or offer support, visit their GoFundMe page. Every dollar, every prayer, every loving wish will bring more light into their world.

Speaking of light, here are a few things I think are worth sharing:

• A beautiful, inspiring story that made me glad to be registered as an organ donor.
