Beautiful You Sessions are so incredible. Every one of the families I have photographed for this project are so inspiring.
Recently I met Knox, an energetic two year old with an infectious smile.
Something as simple as a common cold can have a huge impact on this little man. He has a condition called Bronchiectasis, a type of lung disease which causes some parts of the lung to become damaged and build up mucus. The fluid build up on his lungs is very hard for him to remove, often resulting in pneumonia. Last year this condition caused him to be hospitalised 12 times.
I was able to photograph Knox just before their family made the big move to the Gold Coast in the hope it will improve his health. The warmer weather and ocean air should hopefully make a huge difference to his quality of life.
You would never know to meet Knox that he has been through so much, he ran, jumped and crashed through our session together.
EDIT: Please send this family some love and positive vibes, Knox has just been discharged after another two weeks in hospital and his condition has worsened over the past couple of months since our session. He will undergo more tests soon to determine if there is another underlying condition.
