When I first heard from Irma I was moved by her personal story of overcoming a major life changing event in her life. Barely over a year ago she suffered a brain attach and had to have brain surgery. During the attack she lost control of the left side of her body. She has been going through intense therapy ever since to help in regaining her strength and use of her left side once again. Through her courage and strength she has made enormous progress. I can only imagine the love of her family and friends and how they have helped impact this progression. I had the privilege of meeting her eldest sister during the session and I can honestly although I do not know them personally their parents should be quite proud of the women they have raised. I left our session with such a renewed faith in perseverance and courage. I hope this opportunity for her captured what she was desiring, seeing the external beauty in herself as others see it. Not seeing limitations but a STRONG beautiful woman.
I also absolutely loved the mask she brought with her. If I could have done an entire session with it I would have 🙂
I will not soon forget our session and the honor I had of photographing her.
