Out Takes from brave Claudia's shoot!

Lyz Meloche-Field, one of our generous volunteers from Look Good, Feel Better, applies a very natural face to Claudia for our shoot. Thank you, Lyz!

A quick post-shoot shot for Claudia, as a memory of her day... Zoey, our cute pooch, was a trooper as well.  She was feeling no pain.

During Claudia's battle, she developed a new found interest in gardening.  Never before had she realized that she has been blessed with a green thumb! Sometimes, out of pain, comes new life.

The end of our day together.  Life IS good.

Thank you, Claudia for allowing me to photograph you.

Photoshoots are underway!

After a heartwarming meeting of the models and photographer a few weeks ago, the photo shoots are now underway!  There is great synergy amongst the group members and this calendar promises to be a huge success!

I had my shoot a few weeks ago and what a blast!  The weather was still warm and we decided that since being around water gave me strength and a feeling of peace during my chemo treatments, we would shoot my photos in the water.  It was on a cool September day but warm enough to pull it off.  Some are in my "speedo" and some... well, we'll leave you in a bit of suspense...
We also did some shots of me with my mountain bike since riding was once an activity that helped to define who I was.  Athletics in general have always been a big part of my life and I look forward to getting back to it.  I can't wait to see the photos once Jen has done her editing.

To all the Models - please post some comments about your photo shoots so we can all get a glimpse of what your photos might be like.

Keep us posted!
