Rebecca’s Story as She Fights Breast Cancer
I don't even know where to begin with this beautiful woman right here. Rebecca is only 28 years old, and she is in the fight of her life against breast cancer. Rebecca's laugh and smile is infectious in every way, and her beauty and strength amaze me.
Rebecca contacted me about a week before her scheduled double mastectomy, and I brought her into the studio right away! We spent the day glamming her up, and listening to her story. There was a ton of laughter, quite a few tears held back, all while we created wonderful, timeless, heirloom portraits.
Rebecca wanted to have her portrait taken before her double mastectomy, to document this time in her life, before her body drastically changed. I LOVED photographing the outfits she brought in! But my favorite was this beautiful white, lace, cocktail dress that fit her figure so perfectly. My legendary pink backdrop made an appearance, of course! I have to say, the backlit images, are just angelic.
My lovely studio mate, Carrie of Carrie Wilson Makeup, dolled Rebecca up in the most natural and dewy makeup, with beautiful, soft, wavy hair. This effortless and timeless look allowed Rebecca’s inner beauty to shine through, and I mean c’mon… just look at that million dollar smile.
My thoughts and prayers are with Rebecca and her family, as they go through this life changing experience. I have only known her this short period of time, but I know she is strong and will persevere through this! Go kick cancer’s butt! #BeckyStrong
