These photos are so special. They were taken just before Lisa started breast cancer treatment. Melissa wanted her to feel beautiful. She wanted to capture this moment in time for them, before Lisa’s world changed. These girls are so dang beautiful. And inspirational. Especially Lisa. Handling this whole disease like a champ with a huge laugh and tons of grace. Her energy is infectious and she’s definitely making the most of every day. I love their love and I can’t wait to watch Lisa come out the other side of this!
It’s been quite a while. I’m just over here working on weddings and portrait shoots and living life. My poor blog. I’ll get back to it soon, promise! In the meantime, if you want to keep up with what I’m doing, please follow me over on the good ol’ instagram machine – @moderntype. Just wanted to say hello real quick. See you so soon!
In 2010, I was invited on a trip to Palm Springs with a group of female photographers. I went with an open mind but if I’m being honest, I wasn’t expecting too much. I already had the best of friends from college. What happened though, was something that I will be forever grateful for. I didn’t just gain industry friends, I gained a group of sisters. Women who encourage each other. Women who laugh together. Women who celebrate your achievements and are there to mourn your losses.
Jordana is one of those special women and together with her husband Chris, has become the dearest of friends. They have been there for both Steve and I, always with a cocktail, a warm hug, understanding eyes and the most endearing of Boston accents. They recently welcomed their sweet baby girl and I got to photograph their anticipation before her arrival. What a gift to watch my friend become a mama. Looking at these photos, pregnancy most definitely agrees with her!!
