At home with the Hughes


This sweet family. About a year and a half ago I had the chance to take their pictures as a family of three (big-boy Beck was so little!!). Evan, Whitney, and I went to high school together and it has been to sweet getting to see them grow in their marriage and watch as their family expands. Social media lets you into the best moments and brings people closer during the hard ones. Back in the spring Evan began experiencing health issues and later had to go in for a brain surgery to drain his ventricles. What was meant to be one surgery quickly escalated to 5 in just under 3 months.

About two months ago I had the privilege to once again be invited into their home, this time, they welcomed me as a family of four with their newest addition, Beau:’) Whitney and Evan wanted this season in their lives to be captured — the boys growing, their new home, and Evan healing. I was honoured to be able to come in and photograph their ‘normal’ as a way for them to look back to on days where ‘normal’ feels so far away.

Through this, Whitney has been updating her social media ( with Evan’s progress and surgeries. It is incredible to see them living out their faith the way they are. As Evan continues to recover and heal, I ask that you join me in prayer in lifting the Hughes up — for full recovery for Evan, for them to return to their ‘normal’ and be home with their kids soon. We love you.
