About a year ago one of my clients called me with a special request. Her 14 year old daughter was being treated for Leukemia and was about to lose her hair. This client asked me to come to the hospital and make portraits of her daughter as well as some family photos. Being a photographer often allows me the privilege of  witnessing  sacred and intimate human interactions.This photo shoot was one of those sessions that will forever stand out in my mind. What probably feels like just getting through the day to these families looks like extraordinary strength to those witnessing their struggle and we often walk away feeling inspired and grateful.

Around the same time as this particular photo session I discovered Flashes of Hope while looking at another photographer's web site. I got chills when I saw the photos taken for Flashes and said to myself "I have to do this". It has been about one year since we started the Cincinnati Chapter. I have laughed and cried and made new friends during our photo sessions. I have learned that bald is beautiful and life is precious.
