Dani . the celebration

“You are brighter than the stars
Believe me when I say
It’s not about your scars
It’s all about your heart

You’re a butterfly held captive
Small and safe in your cocoon
Go on you can take your time
Time is said to heal all wounds”

– Mindy Gledhill

Two years ago her life changed.  Two years ago she embarked on a life changing journey to fight the battle of a lifetime.  Today, she can say she is cancer free!!

We got to do the very anticipated session through this whole journey .. the very last one.  So we hung out like friends do, we laughed and we spent time with animals, because they are always good for the soul.

Career wise, this was by far the most emotionally tolling venture I have ever embarked on.  I never knew the right things to say, what to say, or if I should say anything at all (and for me, this is odd, as I can talk!).  I wanted to cry, I needed to not cry, and I did cry.  Really hard.  It made me thankful, it made me grateful, it made me really mad that there are so many fighting this fight.

So for someone who always has many words, I really have few.  I will be forever thankful to the beautiful girl who asked me to document the worst part of her life.

There’s no better therapy for the soul than a horse.
