December 17, 2016, was a big day for Matthew and Lyndsay Brentlinger, who had recently become the parents of two beautiful twins. The twins, named William and Reagan, became the most important thing to the Brentlingers the moment they were born, but suddenly, tragedy struck when they learned William experienced serious problems during his birth.
William was the victim of a fatal heart condition. The condition was so serious, in fact, that doctors knew from the moment they learned of it that they would be unable to help in any way. Sadly, William’s diagnosis resulted in him having only a week or so to live.
Lyndsay and Matthew were heartbroken after learning of William’s fatal heart condition, but they wanted to cherish the time they had with him the best they could. Immediately contacting a photographer, the Brentlingers decided to capture William with the rest of the family so he would always be remembered long after he was gone.
Reaching out to photographer Lindsey Brown, the Brentlingers asked her if she would be able to photograph the family for the first and last time together. Just two days after getting in touch with Lindsey, the Brentlingers met with the photographer and posed for their family photos.
Despite knowing they would lose William soon, being able to capture the beauty of having both Reagan and William in their hands together was a truly unforgettable moment. Due to abnormalities with his heart, William would leave the family very soon, but being able to take these pictures together helped the family cope with the coming loss of their son.
The pictures reflect a beautiful moment between a family. The darkness behind the fact that William will no longer be with them in a weeks time is present in the pictures, but the beauty of having the whole family together still shines through. There is a strong feeling of love in all the pictures Lindsey Brown was able to capture, and this feeling of love is sure to persist even after William passes away.
Although William was taken from the Brentlingers too soon, the family still cherishes the time they did have with the newborn twin.
With the help of Lindsey Brown, the Bretlingers will always have a piece of time frozen forever. These pictures will always help Lyndsay, Matthew, and Reagan keep William in their thoughts for years to come.
