"Here's to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them"
I had the pleasure of collaborating with Amanda Fithian Photography and Lesley Johnson Photography on a boho themed shoot focusing on women’s empowerment.
These wild women come forward and volunteered for this project and we welcomed and accepted everyone who wanted to participate. All of these women embraced their different backgrounds, lifestyles, shapes, and ages. Among them were cancer survivors, heart surgery survivors, mothers, daughters, grandmothers, sisters... It was a wonderful conglomeration of beautiful souls.
True to Southern Oregon, the weather was less than cooperative and started out rainy and FREEZING, but that didn't stop these women from going all out for the sake of the session.
Most of these women didn't know each other when they arrived, but that didn't stop the laughter, the smiles, and the sense of unity that was created.
A huge thank you to Shar for assisting, lugging props and gear, carrying ladders and trekking through water with us! And all of you wonderful women who participated in this project, thank you so much for your time and dedication...even in the freezing cold temps! This all came together beautifully and I was proud to be a part of it <3
