This Family’s Breathtaking Photoshoot With Their Dying Newborn Proves Every Moment Counts

On December 17, 2016, a Toldedo, Ohio family experienced two miracles: the birth of their twins, William and Reagan, was the first, as every birth is a bona fide miracle. The second, they were not expecting: William, whom they were told would be stillborn due to several heart abnormalities, was born ALIVE.

It was more than the family could have asked for. They were given ten more miracles in turn: William survived for eleven whole days, when they were afraid they would be given none with him.

“They were the happiest 11 days of my life,” the twins’ dad Matthew Brentlinger said to Houston television station KTRK.

They even got to take William home.

Wanting to make William’s time on earth last, his mom Lyndsay sought out a photographer who could come to their home and photograph the twins as soon as possible. Happily, a family friend found Lindsey Brown.

“Being only a few days before Christmas and not being previously booked well in advance, she was hoping due to the circumstances, I’d make an exception,” Photographer Lindsey Brown told CNN.

Of course, she did, and the result is these gorgeous photos of the family of four together that they will cherish for the rest of their lives.
