I love photographing families! I get to be a part of a moment in time that will be treasured for years. It doesn’t get any better than that. The stories that connect them are amazing as well! The Hemmert Family is one family I am grateful to have photogaphed.
The Hemmert’s recently had their portrait taken with us. I met them through a representative with the Tyler Robinson Foundation, an organization who’s mission is “to strengthen families financially and emotionally as they cope with the tragedy of pediatric cancer diagnosis by offsetting out-of-pocket life expenses.” TRF was created by the Imagine Dragons in the name of Tyler Robinson who touched countless lives before passing away from a rare form of cancer. This organization is very dear to the Hemmert family because their son, Emmerson, was diagnosed with Leukemia when he was two. The Tyler Robinson Foundation became a part of their journey. Last year, the Hemmert Family had the opportunity to attend the Imagine Dragons concert in Las Vegas. They even met the band! You can read the article in People and see their photograph taken with the band HERE.
Emmerson is doing well. He underwent ten months of intensive treatment. He is in remission and despite his ongoing treatments until the year 2020, he is swimming, playing soccer, and busy being an active boy. I will always be grateful to have met the Hemmert’s and to have been given the opportunity to take their family portrait.
Family is precious. The time we have together and the moments we share are priceless. Anthony Hemmert told me that their experience with Emmerson “made them focus on the small things and enjoy everything in life.” Such great advice! Thank you Hemmert’s for letting me be a part of your amazing family!
