Breast Cancer Awareness

It isn't just about 1 month out of the year... it's about every day, for every woman,
for every fighter, survivor, and family or friend of a breast cancer warrior.

I'm am humbled each and every time I meet one of these woman and hear their
unique story of strength, courage and bravery!

Here are 2 of the women that will be featured in the 2013 calendar.

Meet Malinda.
She's bold. She's bald. She's beautiful. Her smile is contagious.
She's got a lot of spunk, and she's not letting cancer hold her down!






I'm so proud to be a part of a Breast Cancer Awareness project at
Saint Luke's East Hospital in Lee's Summit, Missouri.
I take photos of some amazing woman. These pictures are put into a fundraising calendar.
Each month features a local woman, tells her personal story, and has some shocking facts
about the deadly disease. The calendar raises money for the Women's Center located at the hospital.
We are hoping to create a place where woman can get accessories, such as wigs and scarves,
get support and learn how to take good care of themselves while fighting for their beautiful lives.

Meet Tobi.
She's rural. She's an activist. Her teenage daugter is too. She's a biker.
She's a beloved teacher, wife and mother of two.
Her students raised money and bought her a wig when she was going through chemo.
They understood when she was too hot to wear it during the warm months of summer.





Thanks to these lovely ladies for being brave enough to tell your story
and share you fight! I'm so proud of you.

Sweet Miss Norah

Today I got to spend my afternoon with this little sweetie!




I really do have the best job, and the best clients in the world!
This couple likes to spend time together hunting and fishing,
and wanted to incorporate that into their newborn baby girl's photos.
Now this is a rack even I'd hang on the wall :)



This little chicky is already 5 weeks old, but she rocked this photo shoot like a
sleepy newby newborn. You might have a super model in the making.




She even gave Dad a big smile, right on que, when he started talking about the golf tour.


What a fun afternoon! Thanks for spending it with me and giving me lots to smile about :)


It's been in the high 90's and mid 100's for over a week now...
and this steamy couple might've had something to do with the extreme heat ;)
