In 2011, a man named Ben Nunery lost his wife Ali to lung cancer. She was only 31 years-old and together they had a 1 year-old girl. For the past two years, Ben and his daughter have had to overcome some emotional hurdles most of us couldn’t dream of enduring. As he and Olivia healed, the house they lived in became less of a painful reminder of what they lost… and a comforting presence. The house, bought as a fixer-upper before their wedding, was where this young couple started their life. They designed every nook and cranny and spent wonderful years there. Now, Ben and Olivia are packing up and moving on with their lives, but before they did, Ben decided to do something so beautiful.

He posted the series of photos on his blog (the images were taken by photographers in his family).

Comparing this last photo session in the house to the first hit Ben hard:

“…this time I would have a different partner, although one just as beautiful. It was fun and strange and sad and comforting and just about every other emotion you can think of. And, it wasn’t until I drove away that the significance of what we had just done hit me like a ton of bricks. These would be the last memories in that house.”

These photos are full of loss, full of hope and full of beauty.
