Everybody has its own way of recovering from a tragic incident that may have occurred in one’s life especially when a loved one died. Looking back at good memories with them perhaps, are a great help in the healing process.
Brazilian blogger named Rafael Del Col who wants to honor and pay tribute to his late wife, Tatiane Valques, who died through a tragic car accident used the Gift of Photography in order to easily cope up with grief. Tatiane who died in a car accident in 2011 was also pregnant with their supposed second child during that time but also died with her.
He, therefore and his little daughter Raisa, had recreated the pictures of the couple together. The original photos were taken in 2009, just before they get married while the recreated ones were taken last 2014. In the recreated photos, Raisa is also wearing the same jewelry her mommy wore and even her high heels. The dog is also the same one Raisa is holding. Rafael’s idea of recreating photos was inspired by Ben Nunery, who also honored his late wife who died of cancer by doing similar shoots with his daughter.

He is grateful that things are adjusting little by little, Raisa is growing healthy and normally developing.
He said that beside his parental duties with his daughter, he still has to deal with grief and the loss of his better half whom he lived with for 10 years
