Toward the end of last year I teamed up with my makeup artist Rachel Wagner to offer a complete beauty experience to one deserving woman. We chose Michele who was nominated by her friend who submitted the following:
Michele is a co-worker of mine who is a breast cancer survivor. Michele was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012 and went through a double mastectomy, complications from her implants, and six months of chemotherapy. She remained so positive through it all. Michele is such a kind, giving, loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and nurse. She always thinks of others first and I do not think she would ever treat herself to such a luxury. You both would make her shine.
Once her nervousness disappeared, Michele was absolutely giddy during her session. Rachel made her gorgeous blue eyes pop and I loved photographing her amazing red hair. Michele now has a collection of photos that shows her as a beautiful, feminine, healthy woman. We definitely made her shine!
Oh Brianna, I cannot express how happy I am to have had the experience of a makeover and photo session with you and Rachel. You made me feel so special and beautiful. I feel like you captured my heart in my photos. You have such a gift!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!! – Michele
