JW Photography » Capture & Create

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!

Please feel free to watch the video. There are a LOT more photo’s in the gallery than I could squeeze into the video so make sure you take a look!

I’m working on a new series called ‘A Day in the Life’. This series is focused on documenting the every day lives of every day people.

I met Jocelin and her family in March when I photographed her 5th birthday party! Jocelin is battling ALL, Acute lymphoblastic leukemia. ALL is cancer of the blood that starts in the bone-marrow and spreads to the bloodstream.

I had the honor of hanging out with Jocelin and her Mom and documented a day at their apartment at the Ronald McDonald House in Seattle. I also got to be there with them when Jocelin (Joss for short!) had a round of chemo at the Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Please check back soon for the full project, until then, here are a few sneak peeks!

I’m a little delayed in posting this wedding from February but better late than never! I did post their slide show on Facebook so I’m not slacking too much! Brittany and Chris had a ‘Midsummer Nights Dream-Peter Pan’ themed wedding. The details were amazing and what a perfect setting right on the water at Chris’ child hood home. February in Washington can be a bit scary for a wedding but the weather was perfect! Thank you Brittany and Chris for allowing me to capture such a wonderful celebration!
