A month on the lake with film photographer Kim Hildebrand

From Kim Hildebrand:

Last summer we spent a month at our tiny cabin on Coeur d’Alene Lake, in Idaho. I grew up here but we are raising our kids in Seattle. Coeur d’Alene has a special place in my heart and because of this, I wanted my kids to experience a bit of this life. I wanted them to be able to be immersed in the strong scent of pine trees, wander freely, catch frogs, have a front row seat to a thunderstorm sweeping across the lake, stay up late watching shooting stars, and spend their entire day playing in the water – which were some of the fondest memories I had growing up. Since we spent a month out there, we each had a personal project to do as well. Both kids wrote books about their experiences by working in journals almost every day, and I took on my own project called Camp Hildehayven (the name of our cabin). I wrote a blog post and took at least one film photo-a-day, similar to a journal. It was a blast to do! The kids enjoyed writing their books and I loved how my project came together. We all loved staying a month at the lake. When you have endless outdoor opportunities, an 800 square foot cabin doesn’t seem so small.
