World Cancer Day | Charlotte NC family Photographer

World Cancer Day is tomorrow. I circled back to this very special session I did in 2016. 

Summer is a wonderful young lady! I have known her parents, Courtney and Larry, since college. When I saw all of Courtney's posts about Summer, it broke my heart. No child should ever have to go through that. She was officially diagnosed with B Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on January 18th, 2016.

I asked Courtney if she would like me to take pictures of Summer. I assumed it would be before she really started treatments, but after a while, Summer decided that she is a warrior and would love pictures of her with her head shaved. She kicked ass at this session just like she's kicking ass in beating Cancer. Thank you Summer, for being such an amazing, strong, young lady!
