It wasn't professional, but I did it. I balled my eyes out at this photo shoot. There we stood in the middle of the trail, hugging and crying, not thinking for a second about what the hikers might think as they passed by.
The pictures below commemorate a very emotional and sweet time between Chris and his dear Annie. Annie was diagnosed with Lymphoma in January and had just a few days left to live at the time of this photo shoot. Annie was strong, curious, loving--and was loved by many in return. Her 5 years on earth wasn't enough, but her precious life will not be forgotten.
