All Stories and Photos Completed!
We are in the final phases, and everything is now with our book designer! We had an amazing trip down to LA, where we were hosted by The Figueroa Hotel. Five women were photographed at the hotel, with it's beautiful moroccan backdrop. Joseph then continued on to Kansas City to shoot a session with Bret Miller, the founder of The Male Breast Cancer Coalition. This finishes our participant list with five more than we originally planned for; we have a total of 38 amazing portraits and stories that make up the body of Beauty After Breast Cancer.
The pictures are beautiful, the stories are amazing. We are now sharing them with a few different organizations as we discuss potential partnerships with cancer care organizations in order to complete our fundraising, and keep us on track for our print date of October 1st. It's an exciting time! And we'll do our best to keep you posted...now that the pacing has slowed down slightly!
Again I want to express our profound gratitude to the brave participants in the book, the venues and organizations that have supported us in our photo sessions (Stimson Green Mansion in Seattle, Lan Su Chinese Garden in Portland, The Figueroa Hotel in LA, Heart and Hands boutique in Ashland, Ashland Community Hospital, Bill's Glass, and Butler Ford), and all of you for your interest in support in creating this valuable resource. THANK YOU.
