Meet my new friends… Cynthia and Matt | utah portrait photographer

So a lot of you know that I have had this idea for a personal project for about 5 years now and it is just barley starting to come to fruition thanks to my two new friends Matt and Cynthia… two of the raddest people that I have had the pleasure of meeting!

I was fortunate enough to met Cynthia about two months ago after her and her sister gave a presentation about their battles with breast cancer. Listening to them relate their story was somewhat depressing and extremely uplifting at the same time. They described how 3 out of the five sisters were diagnosed with breast cancer and how the disease changed their lives forever.

Their story is nothing short of amazing and I was honored to have her in front of my camera!

I met Matt for the first time today and I got goose bumps at least three times as he told me his story of his triumphant battle with brain cancer and how he had to completely relearn how to walk, talk, write and drive all over again after his numerous surgeries.

The entire time I was with them I kept thinking to myself… how could you have such a positive outlook on life when you have been dealt such a crummy hand? These two are stellar examples of what we should all strive to be like… I have so much respect for people who can go through struggles such as Matt and Cynthia’s and be grateful rather than bitter for what they have experienced!

Cynthia and Matt… THANK YOU both for allowing me to capture a moment in your lives!

If you or someone you know has or is battling any form of cancer and are interested in participating in this project with me I’d love to hear from you.
