His mother described the 'unbearable' feeling of having wedding photos taken without her eldest child, and so she and photographers Brandy Angel and Paul Woodward came up with a wonderful idea to include Lake in the celebration.
In a just-married shot of Anna, her long-term boyfriend and their two children, the photographers added a faint image of Lake.
The resulting photograph - which Anna uploaded to a memorial Facebook page set up in her son's name - has had over 20,000 likes in less than 72 hours, as well as thousands of 'shares' across the globe.
