People come to me with a variety of reasons they are ready for a family photo shoot: a child's milestone, the annual holiday card, or because it's just time. This beautiful family came to me ready to celebrate courage.
Tiffany called me a few weeks ago and asked if I was available to take family photos that included her parents and brother. Her mom had just completed 7 chemo treatments and she was feeling really good. The next step included surgery, so they wanted to celebrate her courage and accomplishments that got her this far. The battle was not complete but her mom was feeling really good and that's a great reason for a photo session.
I know about colon cancer. My sister battled a stage-4 colon cancer diagnosis and won! She's been cancer-free for about 5 years. Her courage and strength has forever changed my perception of cancer and it's treatment. It requires a warrior.
I was honored to document this family and their reason to celebrate.
