Grief usually makes people look at photos of the dearly departed in one of two ways- either they become the most important mementos in the world, or they get shoved in a box because looking at them causes too much pain.
When Rafael del Col lost his wife Tatiane Valques and unborn child in a tragic road accident back in 2011 he was devastated and left to raise their daughter Raisa alone.
Left trying to figure out how to raise a daughter and deal with grief at the same time, Rafael focused on raising Raisa and honoring Tatiane's memory, and together they overcame grief naturally.
When Raisa was three years old her loving father decided to honor her mother's memory by recreating a photo series shot a week before Rafael and Tatiane were married in 2009, with adorable daughter Raisa standing in for her mother.
The series is an exercise in overcoming grief and paying homage to a loved one who was taken away far too early, and even though Raisa will never really know her mother they'll always be connected by this heartwarming photo shoot.
