BIEGLER FAMILY : Cedar Rapids, IA Family Photographer

 photo IMG_1744.jpg

I have known Nickie & Laura and their family for awhile through a girl's ministry,
and knew that things weren't looking good for their Dad last spring as he battled major health struggles.
This was probably one of the hardest sessions that I have ever photographed.
And due to the timing it brought things full circle in a way with photography for me.
Just weeks before I shot these I documented a birth..watching a person take their first breath.
And we shot these just a few weeks before their Dad went to Glory..
which was totally God's timing that this even worked out and was ordained to happen.
I'm choking up and crying typing this.
Guys I don't usually photograph couples thinking that these are probably the last pictures
that they will ever have together.

But this is really what it's all about -- documenting the living..having tangible reminders of LIFE.
Things like this are important..capturing the seasons are important, photography is so important.
I'm reminded of this again..so much, in looking at these images.
Someday you're not gonna have the season you're in right now.
The people around you aren't always going to be there.

I'm behind on even sharing these, but hope they are an encouragement + reminder 
to someone that YOUR. WORK. MATTERS.
And for all of us with our various skills + talents -- GO be using them
and look for ways to GIFT them as the body of Christ.
Please continue to keep the Biegler family in your prayers.

  1. Oh Hannah.
    I could cry.
    This is why we photograph, why we CAPTURE LIFE. This is so precious.
    My most favorite shoot you have EVER DONE. I can't imagine how priceless these pictures are to their family.

  2. Every one is priceless! THIS is why I love photography. Capturing sweet memories to look back on.
    Praying for them!

  3. I know David and Aaron through a children's ministry, and I knew their dad recently passed away, but it really puts in into perspective seeing the pictures. It brought tears to my eyes- life is so precious.

  4. These photos are so precious! Wonderful job, Hannah.

  5. Thank you for this post. It was the reminder I needed today that the work that I do matters. Thank you for this.
