there is so much i want to tell you

two years ago i met terry, renee & kirra

we met up at the beach – the venue for our photoshoot

and then i plucked up the courage

to ask them if they would be game to check out this field that i found, maybe we’d get a few more shots there

i’d never shot any clients there before, so they’d be my “field at sunset” guinea pigs

it was so beautiful (check it out here)

just as we were saying goodbye, after the shoot, renee quietly mentioned that kirra has cystic fibrosis

no big deal, not what defines them or her

just what they live with. every day

i drove home in tears that day wishing there was no such thing as CF

a year later i photographed an amazing

fundraiser organised by terry and renee for CF

again I walked around blinking back the tears

watching people dig deep to raise much needed funds

to help find a cure

“for the love of life”

i donated a photo shoot as one of the prizes for the day

imagine my joy when kirra’s grandpa won the prize!

fast forward a few months again

it took a while to find a time when kirra and her cousins would all be together

it was worth waiting for
