Janet & Drew Burges

I feel so blessed when I get the opportunity to help tell people's stories, especially when the are as amazing as this one! When I received an inquiry for a mother/son shoot, Janet informed me that she had just been diagnosed with breast cancer. Unfortunately, this is not the first client that I have shot prior to beginning a corse of treatment, and just as I did with previous clients...I immediately felt a close bond with this family. Janet & her son Drew are extremely close and it was beautiful to witness a parent/child relationship as strong as theirs. Few teenage boys are this mature and respectful!

We started in Coronado, a place close to their hearts as many of their summers were spent there. I am always impressed when people fighting something as serious as cancer are determined to keep living their lives. Janet is no exception to this! In fact, Janet is a marathon runner and is admit that cancer will not keep her from her love of running.

The shoot ended at the cross at Point Loma Nazarene University {where my daughter Nicki is attending college}. The fog had just begun rolling in as it gently floated up around us. It was such a peaceful and perfect way to end this shoot.

My prayers are with this beautiful woman and all that love her! I am so grateful that I had the privilege of capturing this family and look forward to working with them again!
