{ Follow me } - Through the lens of Rachael Brown.

I am so grateful for all the people I have in my life.

The old and the new.

Rachael. She is a local Photographer here in Nelson and is quickly becoming a good friend of mine.

Rachel is compassionate. She is kind. She is beautiful.

She offered to capture my last chemo treatment for me and my Family.

To some it would seem like a strange thing to do but for me it was something I had always wanted to do.

I just needed the right person to capture it.  

Rachael was that person.

Capturing the day. The honest, raw emotions. As we are. Its just what she does.

And she does it well.

I have to say that this has become the norm for me and my family. I understand for some squeamish people that it may be hard to look at. 

Theres nothing horrible. Just a needle or two. And a few tears.

There is also smiles and laughter. Plenty of smiles. 

But you have been warned.

I welcome you in and ask you to follow me through a routine that is normality for so many people.

Rachael - You are such a star. My family and I thank you for gifting us with these Photos.
