Just before the end of 2011, I had the privilege of being a part of a very special shoot indeed.
Katie Stevenson, whose immediate family I’d had the pleasure of shooting just over a year prior, contacted me to arrange a special gift for her mother who is currently battling cancer. Having earlier that year, our own cancer scare, as my Mum had all her lymph glands taken from her right arm – I could, albeit in a very small way, relate to what they were going through & agreed that their idea for a shoot was a great one!
The idea for the shoot was to get her whole family together on one day to create some special memories for their mum & of course the whole family!
The shoot, as planned was great & we all had a lot of fun – The Human Pyramid was one of my personal highlights of the day!
The Sunflower has long been regarded as a symbol of loyalty & longevity and associated with many cancer related charities, and so Katie & her family felt that it would be a great idea to include this symbolism within their shoot!
Here below you can see a few of my favourite shots from the day, but before that I’d also like to mention that Katie’s brother Phillip Lynn is attempting a truly amazing feat in order to raise money for his mum & other cancer sufferers through Macmillan Cancer Support, to find out more about this truly astonishing feat that he’s attempting click HERE, visit his fundraising page & please give all you can – at this time of writing they only need a further £220 to reach there £2500 target – so please check it out & remember any donation, no matter how small will be greatly appreciated!
