A couple weeks ago I had a unique opportunity to photograph a past client & now friend. The circumstances for her beauty session are undesirable, just writing about it puts a knot in my stomach. One month ago at the age of 29 Kara was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. You can imagine the shock that this news brought. Kara is an incredible woman, mother, wife, daughter. She has handled her diagnosis with grace & honesty. I encourage you to read her blog here. I am so glad Kara reached out to me with the idea to do a beauty session before she began treatment. Her body will go through many changes & she wanted to have a reminder of what she looked like before. We took some portraits & had a mini boudoir session which was super fun. She’s a knock out & so photogenic!
As a believer in God I have witnessed His healing power first hand. I ask you to please join me in praying for Kara. Pray God will heal her body, pray God will bring her a strong sense of peace & pray Kara will know how loved she is every step of this journey. The last thing Kara would’ve expected has now happened. When I was visiting with her during her session she expressed how important it is for women of ALL ages to be mindful of your body & the changes that might be taking place.
Kara, I am blessed to call you a friend. Thank you for letting me in & allowing me to share your journey. So much love to you! XOXO
