Almost a year ago, I received a call from a client who was requesting family pictures. This is a pretty typical request I get, as I am a family photographer. I had taken photos for her family before, the only difference was that this time her mom, dad and siblings were there. She was in a hurry to get them done, which again, is not too out of the norm for me.
That was when they share the heartbreaking news with me. Stacey had been diagnosed with breast cancer.
This was a first for me as a photographer and definitely out of the norm. To have this happen to a client, so close to home, my heart ached. I am very passionate about what I do and consider all of my clients friends and care about all of them. I followed her journey though this and hoped and prayed that this ended with Stacey being cancer free.
I am happy to say and rejoice with her that STACEY KICKED CANCERS BUTT!!! To see the difference a year makes and the dreadful phone call she had to make to possibly take family photos for the last time. Then, to get the message she would like a goodbye to cancer session? My heart is bursting with happiness for her! She is such an inspiration to everyone!
Thank you Stacey for allowing me to be there with you as you said your final good bye to cancer.
