I have a brand new friend. We met because it was meant to be, that I am sure. She found me and now we are connected. Her story touched me as I know it will you. Her newly published book “Take my Hand” (hope and help for the journey) is written with truth and heart, her personal journal of her journey with breast cancer, written as to a friend. When we met we clicked. After shooting a few photos of her face for her book jacket I asked her frankly if she would want me to photograph her breasts, she said yes without hesitation. Unplanned, personal, vulnerable, raw. Call it whatever you want. Brave. This woman is a believer and has a story to share that will touch your heart. Thanks to Beth for being so open and incredibly brave with me.
Have you ever heard “A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words”? Not many things can make me speechless but this photo does. When Maggie asked me about taking the picture, I didn’t hesitate. It is a powerful statement. What does it say to you? To me is screams, “I am strong, I have overcome, I am a survivor, I have been beaten but not destroyed”
