For a few years I have wanted to get a project underway called ‘A Day in the Life’. The focus of this project is to document regular people living their everyday lives. Nothing posed, nothing staged, just raw emotion, raw moments, REAL life.
I first met Jocelin, aka Joss, and her family while photographing Jocelin’s 5th birthday party back in early April. Joss is battling acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL). After spending just a short time with Jocelin and her family I knew they would always have a piece of my heart and they haven’t been far from my thoughts since.
I decided that I wanted the Hough’s to be the first focus of my special project. I had the honor of spending a day with Ms. Jocelin and her Mom Amanda. While Joss is kicking some cancer buttay, her and her family are staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Seattle. She is receiving treatment at the Seattle Children’s Hospital not far from the Ronald McDonald House. Because of work and maintaining their house in Sequim, Jocelin’s Dad Jim and sisters Lily and Kahlan were not at the RMH the day I was there, but…that’s a part of the real struggle and that’s what I wanted to capture. Every moment you see is real, the good times, the hard times and the hilarious times!
I set out to document a day in Jocelin’s life, little did I know I would walk away with such an amazing experience and best of all new friends for life. Thank you for letting me capture a day in your life Jocelin!
