It's bad when you hear someone you know has cancer, and there have been many in the last few years. It's even worse when it's a child. A boy that is the same age as your boy. This could have been your boy. It's heart wrenching. It's been often difficult to watch through social media, what the family has gone through, what Tobias has gone through. A super sister that gave her bone marrow to save her little brother. It's also quite incredible to see the strength that comes, the long fight and the relief of recovery at the end. All the love from friends and family, and a boy standing at the end of the long road, beautiful and strong.
They used to be our neighbours when our kids were much smaller. I have taken photos of them over the years and couldn't think of another way to celebrate this family, than with a photoshoot. A small token to say "YES! You did it! F#@k Cancer!"
We celebrated out in Heistadmoen throwing leaves and climbing trees. A family of 7 that was one of the easiest families I have taken photos of to date.
Thanks Torild and family for a nice afternoon and for letting me share this little story.
