“Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.”~ Kahlil Gibran
The strength and courage of this young woman amazes me. When she contacted me about doing a session to document her battle with Cancer, I was beyond honored. Her beauty is not only visible on the outside but inside as well. To be a very small part of her journey and struggle, feels like a gift.
My life was recently shook up with a loved one being diagnosed with Breast Cancer. For me, this session was not only for this beautiful client, but for my loved one as well as for all Cancer survivors and those who have lost the battle. You are all beautiful, strong and amazing. Your scars are your battle wounds. You did not ask for this horrible disease, you did not ask for the pain or for the debilitating fear, but you fight...hard! Wear your scars with pride, as they are as beautiful as you are.
Hear what this client had to say about their experience with Megan VanDort Photography:
"I can't say enough about what Megan has done for me. I presented her with a very unique idea for a photo session and she not only ran with it, and made me feel comfortable with it, but she also was immediately passionate about it and helped me tell my story and document my journey through cancer in an incredibly beautiful way. She immediately made me feel comfortable, she was incredibly professional yet it felt like my bff was taking my photos, and she never left me feeling like I didn't know how I should be posing or what should I be doing with my hand in that awkward position... she would always jump in and correct my pose or smooth a wrinkle in my clothing before she snapped her next photo. She took the time to notice details and made sure to capture me in the most flattering way possible, while still artistically managing to express strength and vulnerability at the same time. I couldn't be happier with my photos, and I will certainly be back for update photos as time goes on. Thank you for everything, Megan. I never would have thought that I would be saying this at this point in my life, but your photos made me feel beautiful, confident, and strong for the first time in months. You have a true gift."
