This is my friend Lianne. In March of 2018 she was diagnosed with breast cancer and asked me if we could style a photoshoot to capture this phase of her life. She was finishing up her final rounds of chemotherapy and her hair was due to grow back, but she wanted to showcase that hair does not define femininity or beauty, nor would it stop her from showing her fierceness. I created an initial concept and mood board — Lianne styled the looks — and we collaborated on creating various scenes at The Portland Studio that brought the two together in a magical way. I’m so proud of this session, our work, her strength and beauty and the overall essence and meaning behind what we created together.
