“Can’t Breathe” Book Launch Event

I have a very special job in that I get to work with some really incredible people. I photograph a lot of emotions in my line of work. The most powerful emotion of all is love. Love comes in many forms. It’s seen in laughter, hugs and kisses. It’s also seen in uncontrollable emotions like crying. To be human is to feel and to be vulnerable.


When an old classmate asked if I could photograph his wife’s book launch, I knew this would be a very special event. James and Laesa celebrated the launch of her book, “Can’t Breathe” which can be purchased on Amazon. This is an incredible story of the birth of their second child, Evelyn, and what it’s like being the parents of a child with juuuust a few more medical needs than others. Laesa pours her heart into this book and you can’t help but feel like you were there with her through every experience as you turn the pages.


Friends, family and also medical staff who have been following along in this family’s journey slowly arrived at Tuc Craft Kitchen and the night was filled with so much love. The night was spent in celebration and support and Laesa shared a reading of the preface of her book which was so special!


You can get a copy of Laesa’s book on Amazon.
