a bit of nostalgia

When I was a kid, I went to a small school called Bastion Elementary. On May long weekend, while we were in BC, I decided to get Jensen out of the house for a bit and we ended up down the road from my parents at Bastion.

The forest.

This place is the home of a lot of good memories. My Trolls and My Little Ponies spent ample time playing house in the roots of those big cedars. Recess was full of races to see who could get the whatever was the coolest thing at the time, the swings were always a hot ticket item and usually won by the grade 7’s. I hadn’t been to this forest in many, many years….a flood of images from my past sprang to the surface and it came to a point where I just had to sit and soak in all the innocence of childhood that I could. I sat there watching Jensen climb the same trees I did, playing on the same jungle gym (There is a shot of Jensen playing on jungle gym that was built the year I graduated grade 7), and just watch him and wondered if he was making those same memories. I hope anyways….

I’m going to admit, I was a bit emotional seeing Jensen running around in the forest that I used to frequent as a child. I told him that mommy used to play there when she was a little girl and ever since that day he’s been telling people that he is going to go to “mommy’s school” when he gets big…I wish, buddy…I wish.

Meet the Hutchinson family :).... and might I say that this was the most well behaved, most corporative family I have ever had the privilege of photographing.

The Hutchison's were celebrating one year (to the day, actually) moving to Asheville. enjoy..... :)

This is my beautiful friend Lyndsey, her husband Chad and their little boy Sawyer. I've asked Lyndsey for her permission to share her story and I will be documenting her journey as the days go by. About three weeks ago Lyndsey was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. What was presumed to be a plugged milk duct (she is still breast feeding) turned out to be a tumour. A shock to all of us. We decided to do a little family session as kind of a nod to life at this moment, something to look back on years from now and be thankful for each and every experience we are faced with....the good and the bad. This family has been through a lot in the past f ...
