Lebanon, TN Photographer | Breast Cancer Awareness

Warriors

Oh, my goodness. These women. I can’t even begin to say how much I admire them, and want to honor them in this post. When Joy Pine from Iddy and Oscar’s told me her idea for this October photo shoot, I thought it was THE BEST idea ever…so we contacted these four warriors, and they jumped at the chance to share their stories to help others, even though it has been a hard, tough road. I’m sure it is sometimes difficult to open up and talk about something as scary as breast cancer when you are still fighting the fight. I am in awe at their bravery, kindness, and willingness to help others. Each of them has said that they would readily talk to anybody going through what they did and are. Reach out if you need a friend who knows the struggle. All four of them are brave, beautiful, and so, so awesome.

“The most important thing God has taught me through this is that this life we live here on earth is just labor pains…our eternity in heaven is worth every pain here on earth.” -April

“You come out with a testimony, the one chosen for you by a God who loves you with an everlasting love and will never leave your side.” -Debbie

“Enjoy every day. Live life to the fullest. I hope I can be an inspiration to just one person. God has a plan. He knows.” -Cindy

“Cancer does not discriminate. You are never too young for breast cancer. Being your own advocate is so important. ‘Do not be afraid. Just believe.’ Luke 8:50.” -Toni

Thank you to all that made this happen:

Nashville Senior Photographer | High School Graduate

Chase

   Meet Chase.  Class of 2018.  Young and reckless.  That's how he describes himself.  Also he's confident, kind, definitely polite.  He's very athletic and he made me laugh during his senior session.  We went out to The Mitchell House on Castle Heights campus for the first part of his photo shoot. Then we headed to the a place he loves, the lake; his family's lake house.   Chase loves to wakeboard and be on the water.  He was homeschooled for his high school career because he was traveling so much for his moto cross competitions.  Before that, it was baseball and football.  I told you he is athletic and into everything. 

 During our session Chase said he really wasn't into taking pictures, but by the end he was asking for more (with his truck!).  Love it, I knew he would change his mind once we started.  He was raised right, super polite.  I have no sense of direction, and when I followed him to the lake house he made sure to put on his blinker.  I knew this was a good kid.  :)  Scroll down to see his senior pics!

Annie is so beautiful in these senior portraits.  I can't even get over it.  

Nashville Senior Photographer | Jade

Lebanon High School Junior | Jade

   I've know Jade for many years, as she went through Coles Ferry, the school I where I teach.  She is such a sweet girl!  She offered to be one of my senior models this time, and I'm so glad.  Look how pretty!  Jade is into HOSA, the outdoors, and she's a lifeguard.  Also she is an avid clogger and wins all kinds of awards doing that.  Wonderful!  Take a look at her pictures we took at Cedars of Lebanon State Park.

    Before you go scroll down to see today's featured model, Jayda!  Her outfit is the highlight of my day today.  Back in the 90s (YES), my favorite thing to wear was velvet and denim.  I am so happy to see that it's back.  Well, I usually had a choker and platform sandals to go with it...

  Jayda is a sophomore at Lebanon High School.  She loves dancing, swimming, and trying new things.  She's is a singer and is active in her church and Girl Scouts.  She is a positive person...and organized...and hardly ever late to things.  I think I need her in my life!  She's gorgeous, too.

   I love this girl!  This is Trinity's feature for Senior Week.  She has modeled for me two years in a row because I just couldn't resist.  I've known her for a while because we go to church together.  She is definitely a person who is strong enough to show her individuality, and I think she is awesome.  Cats are her favorite, and you'll see her at MTSU in the fall.
