Ethan's perfect final photo bring comfort to parents

IT was the simple click of a camera that caught a precious moment that Ethan Baguley's parents will cherish forever.

Just hours before the 13-month-old passed away, a photographer created lasting memories for two heartbroken parents.

Craig Baguley and his partner Michaela McWilliam lost their little boy earlier this year after he battled with a rare genetic disorder.

After months spent in hospital, Ethan's parents decided to capture the last moments they would have with their son on camera.

A volunteer photographer from the organisation Heartfelt rushed to the family's side to take photos of Ethan, his parents and his big brother Isaac.

He passed away just hours later.

Michaela said that they had taken photos of Ethan throughout his life, but the Heartfelt photographer was able to capture the little things.

"We are grateful to have something that documented that time, now we have photos of his little hands and his eyes," Michaela said.
