The Bolte Family

Kristy Bolte contacted me about doing a family photo - with a twist. See, Kristy and her husband, Howard lost two babies, Isaac then just this past year Asher. Kristy also shared with me that the thought of a "family portrait" was very difficult for her because a photo of her, Howard, Ben and Luke is incomplete for a "family portrait". I really hope that this photo helps them to feel what they know to be true - that their little Isaac and Asher are with them and very much a part of their family all the time.

They are really an amazing family and I was so glad that I had the chance to be with them yesterday.

I hope that Kristy and Howard won't mind but I want to post a link to their blog. I just spent about a half an hour reading it.

I only "know" Kristy from her blog, but she is very special to me. Thank you SO much for doing this for her and her family. I don't think words could describe how special that is. I "teared up" when I saw the picture on her blog, but after reading what you wrote, I lost it. You are an amazing person to give them such a precious gift. I know you blessed them beyond words. May God bless you too.

Oh Katie! You've done it again! You've captured the very essence of their family, who they are. Thank you for the link to their blog. I read it and the tears flowed.
You have truly found your calling, my friend.
