These photographs were taken a few days after my friend had been diagnosed with cancer. Before she started intensive treatment we got together for a photo shoot at her home in Mount Eliza.
I wanted to capture her with her husband and all her children (she has many of the beautiful beings) .... on the brink of fighting her cancer - this was the calm before the storm, this was the end of life as she knew it, this was a moment in her journey.
In this wonderful thing we call life - this is her - surrounded by love and laughter . The family have since moved to a farm and life has once again moved into the next chapter. I hope that these photos are memories that they will treasure. Images that document that time of their life.
My beautiful friend Brigitte and her awesome family!
I think that now it is time for a new collection of photographs at the farm !
