Michelle contacted me last month to schedule a portrait shoot for a very special reason. She wanted to mark five years since she kicked cancer's ass! How great is that? She even had a specific location in mind, the beach that her family had property close to where she would summer growing up. How perfect is that? The weather was even quintessentially Pacific Northwest, drizzly and windy! But Michelle loved it and we got some great, raw shots which was exactly what she wanted.
