October is breast cancer awareness month and it’s really a topic that hits home. Both of my sisters were diagnosed with breast cancer within two years of each other. Both went through immense pain, both went through the fear of “what’s going to happen to me…to my children”, but far more importantly, both survived. And honestly, I can’t thank my lucky stars enough to still have them in my life…to talk to, to laugh with, to fight with, just have them.
This is where I thought I could help…
As a participating photographer, I am pleased to offer a complimentary photography session to anyone diagnosed with breast cancer or who has completed treatment in the last 12 months. In addition to your session, you will also receive (20) complimentary 5×7 prints and a discount off any additional purchases. It’s my goal to be available to document the fight before or during treatment or to celebrate the victory when treatment is completed.
It is immeasurable the amount of love I have for my sisters. To me, there was nothing more helpless than watching them go through something so life altering and painful and not be able to do much. By partnering with Think Pink I hope to at least be able to do something thoughtful for someone else…at least in an effort to make my sisters proud. Lord knows that I am extremely proud of them. I love you both!
From the other day…
…and I know that my sister is saying right now, “dude, that’s SUCH an understatement!”
In my defense though…at least I’m doing something and not just letting the thousands of dollars in product collect dust : ) !
Fast forward to the other day…being in the presence of these two really put me at ease. They are so loving with one another. It was as if they were in their own little world and nothing else mattered to them…just their day. I just followed them around Riverfront Park, in Pottstown, and captured their love. No pressure, just love.
I’ll post their slideshow soon, however, here are a couple of my favorite shots of the day.
