About a week ago I got to be a part of something really special. My very dear friend (and hairstylist!) Jenna was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Through the emotional roller coaster of chemo, what do you do when your hair starts to fall out? You have a haircutting party with your friends, of course! One of her best friends also shaved her head that night in support of Jenna. Complete with string lights, lots of wine and pizza, a salon chair, and so many good friends, the backyard at Brent & Jenna's house was buzzing.
I was so thankful to be a part of this night. It is what I love to do: capture these important moments during this life. Cancer is not a beautiful thing, but our love for one another and the deep intimacy a painful diagnosis brings out in our relationships are so beautiful.
