Earlier this year I ran into Thomasina and Cedar in “Bishop” California and this time I was well equipped with a camera. Shy at first I was to ask Thomasina to let me do a photo story on her and daughter. Considering she doe’s not like pictures of herself I was grateful she allowed me to share a few days with her and Cedar. I need to stop writing and let the images take over but I must say this last bit. Thomasina is not just one of the world’s strongest women professional rock climbers and part time Doula, but has chosen to live on the road with her daughter climbing place to place. Up until meeting these two I have been told a single mother raising there child on the road was not ideal, just for the record this dynamic duo proves otherwise. Cedar is one of the most exquisite children I have ever met; she seems to be in sync with the earths pulse. I am not saying the proper way to raise a child needs to be solely out of a van but a balance I believe needs to be implemented. Thomasina has created a lifestyle in where she follows her passion, in conjunction with incorporating into it a childhood experience for her daughter, by default creating the perfect play ground with some of most beautiful jungle gym’s in the world.
