A big part of she. is sharing stories of girls and women. These stories can be anything from simply what makes them who they are to something they have overcome or something they are proud of. We are starting to add people's stories to our site. You will be able to visit our "meet she." page and click on an image to read more about the awesome people we have been capturing. Our first one is Meghan.
When my friend Jen and I were talking about "she." one day, Jen mentioned a friend of hers and how maybe I should talk to her about having her picture taken and sharing her story. She told me Meghan was going through treatment for breast cancer and had a very positive outlook in how she was dealing with it. I, of course, said, "Yes. Please reach out to her and have her contact me if she is interested." She did and Meghan was very willing to be part of "she." We exchanged a few Facebook messages in which I could already tell I was going to love her and already felt completely inspired by her. When talking about the photo shoot, I told her to wear anything that made her comfortable and that it should look like "her", something she'd wear any other day. She then told me she wanted to do both in her wig and without, which of course, I loved. Last Sunday, we met up to snap some photos. We chatted for a bit first and then had some fun capturing this amazingly beautiful woman. You can see in the images how her positive attitude and personality shine through her eyes despite what she is going through.
Please visit "meet meghan" to read her beautiful story of positivity through an extremely difficult time. It is truly inspiring.
