About a month ago I photographed a woman who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer (read the full post and see the photos here) and was about to go under the knife. The mastectomy was scheduled to take place a week after our first photoshoot.
Once we got together for this post-mastectomy photoshoot, she told me more about the surgery, the experience and all the things that went through her head during. Through it all, she has maintained her sensibility and optimistic outlook on life.
Her humour especially is still very much intact: a few days after the surgery she was already joking about the new breast she has ordered from the surgeon!
This woman is an inspiration.
See for yourselves.
The final photograph perfectly portrays her joie-de-vivre.
Just look at her.
Isn’t she beautiful?
Thank you, again, for letting me come to your home and to such an intimate situation with you. I feel blessed to have gotten to know you and in some way experience this with you.
Until next time lovelies,
