Remembering Cailen


I had the opportunity to take the portrait of this beautiful baby, Cailen, at St. Paul Hospital this summer. This, of course, is the same hospital where our sweet Bella was born a year and half ago. Like Bella, Cailen’s life was very short. But it was a life filled with love from his family who surrounded him. He never knew anything but love. I wanted to share these pictures with you because he was so precious. There was so much joy and love in that room. It was an honor to be present. He lived for 3 days after these pictures were taken of him and his family.

Cailen’s mother and father, Siobhan and Rupesh are quite amazing folks. It has been a joy for our family to get to know them through this very difficult loss. If you are a photographer and would consider volunteering your time and talent to families in similar circumstances, check out the national website at or contact me at
