Being a portrait photographer can be rewarding in so many ways. Meeting new people, hearing wonderful stories and helping women feel good about themselves are just a few. Occasionally, I meet incredible women who have gone through challenging times in their lives. Seeing how strong they are is really inspiring. I have recently had a pleasure of meeting and working with one these women. Madeline has been battling Rheumatoid Arthritis since the birth of her second child. Raising two children while suffering from fatigue, pain and immobility is no easy task. Although she is no longer able to work full time she enjoys teaching part-time, and while undergoing many treatments and taking medication she is leading a healthy lifestyle by example. Exercise, yoga, healthy meals, and a positive attitude are a part of her every day life. What a great role model for her kids and students! Madeline, thank you for the opportunity to work with you and for sharing your story!
