I go into each session with the goal and hope to inspire my clients and tell their story. This session was different from anything I've really ever done before. I spent the drive to it in and out of prayer, praying that I would get the session right, and that my photos would encourage Mel on her journey. Mel started chemotherapy this week, which makes these images her story. I see a woman of strength, a young woman with courage, who is brave, and who is boldly stepping forward into this next chapter of her story. Mel, you inspired me even in the short time we met. I love how you embraced your purple hair and were up for anything I asked you to do. I hope these images can encourage you along the way. Much love.
