That is what the shirt said that baby James wore during his photo session. The intense love these parents had for their baby is apparent in every picture I took. I feel extremely blessed to have spent the afternoon with James and his family. He truly has touched my life and further strengthened my love for what I do. Sweet baby James passed away just 2 days after these pictures were taken. My deepest sympathy is felt for this beautiful family. © carrie sandoval | redondo beach

    my throat is closed tight, and the tears are threatening to come back. i will pray for this family’s peace, and also thank God for blessing the family with you, Carrie. i also pray for you, because it’s obvious through your images that the emotions passed through you too~ you must have grief for sweet baby James.

    Wow! I took my time to look at each image and was just amazed at that not only I could see the images (obviously), but that I could also feel the love in these images.

    Needless to say after reading your words how shocked I was and my heart goes out to this family and I can’t even imagine what you all went through. All I know is that as many have already stated Carrie, you not only gifted them….you’ve Blessed them with a reminder of God’s gift!

    Beautiful!! That last image is one of my favorites.

  11. oh, my heart plummeted when i read that he passed. what gorgeous images you captured for them. precious, precious baby.

    I saw the image of the sandy feet earlier today and sent the link to my husband. We have photographed all of our four children’s birth announcements at the beach and were in awe of the creativity of this shot. We thought it seemed so natural but yet no one thinks to do it. True ART.

    It is only now 10 hours later that I read the text on your blog. I am crying sitting at the computer, again in awe of your creativity and composure to give this family such an incredible gift. Your art is always amazing.

    What a beautiful baby & family, my heart is so heavy.

    I have to second what Leila said, I can’t get the images out of my mind. My heart is breaking for this mother and father. My heart hurts….
    Carrie, Your creativity and talent are amazing. These photos show the true beauty of your natural talent with infants. The love and the pain can both be seen and FELT in these images.
