    LAFAYETTE, LA – He may be gone, but he’ll never be forgotten.

    That’s what one photographer captured in her breathtaking photos of a young boy paying tribute to his fallen father, who was a trooper with the Louisiana State Police.

    Trooper Steven Vincent, 43, was a 13-year veteran with the police force. KSLA reports he was shot and killed in August while checking on a suspected intoxicated driver. The man who officials say shot him is now facing murder charges.

    Trooper Vincent is survived by his wife, Katherine, and his 9-year-old son Ethan.

    The Louisiana State Police posted on their Facebook page that Katherine had photos of Ethan taken in honor of their fallen father and husband.

    “Although Steven no longer walks among us, we carry his spirit with us each and every day. But nowhere is Steven’s spirit more alive than in the courage of his young son, Ethan,” LSP wrote.

    Photographer April Reeves shared the photos to her Facebook page, saying it was an honor to take the photos. She also said she loved working with Ethan.
