Breast Cancer Survivor Portraits | Cynthia

Some months ago, I had the privilege to photograph one of our close friends, Cynthia, breast cancer survivor warrior.  Though her experience has been challenging, she has kept a positive attitude and is supported and surrounded by the most loving family and friends. These photos were taken after accomplishing multiple rounds of chemotherapy and prior to having a double mastectomy. Currently she is going through reconstructive treatments and today Cynthia is cancer free. We had a lot of fun during the shoot, there was even a cameo appearance by Cynthia’s sister, Christina. It was a great experience made even greater by Cynthia’s sweet, fun loving personality.
