Son’s Health Scare Sparks A New Passion In His Father

Following a health concern involving his son, Adrian Murray made it his mission to capture his children’s beautiful childhood memories through his lens.

Adrian Murray’s beautiful portrait photography tells a story of childhood that all of us can relate to. His nostalgic photo ideas remind us of our own childhoods and the storybooks we used to read while growing up.

Adrian and his wife Michelle woke up one morning to find their 10-month-old baby boy unresponsive in his crib – a nightmare for any parent to go through. Emerson was rushed to the hospital. Three days and several tests later, there were no answers, only for it the issue to happen again days later. Emerson was put on anti-seizure medication. With this unfortunate event, Adrian was reminded of how mortal we all are, including our children. Adrian felt compelled to record his family through beautiful pictures.

Today, Emerson is doing just fine and has even become an older brother. After a year of medication, new tests were done, and he has recently been cleared from needing medication.

The professional photographer enhances his images with Lightroom software and doesn’t compose images. He prefers to shoot his children photography works with his Canon 6D paired with a Canon 135L.

Great stuff! WHAT do do mean when you say "[he] doesn’t compose images." ???????

I took it to mean that he just takes things as they happen - he doesn't engineer them or tell the kids to pose in a certain way.

A problem may arise outside the heart, though, that affects the normal pumping of blood. For example, high blood pressure due to narrowing and hardening of blood vessels health news can hinder the passage of blood. Blood vessels are usually flexible to accommodate the pressure of the blood, but if they are inflexible, the passage of blood becomes more difficult.
