Photography provide a means to access the past and keep memories fresh in mind. To pay homage to his late wife, a father and his little daughter posed for a couple of photos that reflect on their lives without her.
Two years after His wife death from a rare form of cancer, he and his daughter Olivia prepared to move from their Cincinnati home but he wanted a way to remember the home before leaving, so he asked his sister-in-law to take some final photographs.
Ben and Ali closed on the house in 2009 — the day before their wedding. Melanie Tracy Pace, Ali's sister and a also a professional photographer, chose to take advantage of the empty space and shoot the couple's wedding photos in their new home.
To honor her sister's memory, Melanie recreated the Same wedding photos with Ben and Olivia. The new series, presented side-by-side with the original photos, is a tender homage to Ali's life and a touching look at Ben and Olivia's new lives together.
