When Lindsey contacted me to do her maternity photos, I was so excited because I had heard her story and had been praying for her, but had yet to meet her.
Lindsey is a fellow photographer from South Carolina and also a Savvy Sister, but she attended the fall workshop while I attended the one in February. Although we hadn’t met before, having both been through the amazing Savvy Photographer Workshop, I felt as though we already had a connection because of that. There really is a special bond between the Savvy Sisters!
Back in April, Lindsey was diagnosed with colon cancer while also being 17 weeks pregnant. Within a week she underwent surgery to have the tumor removed.
Her surgery was successful, and the cancer was removed.
But her journey is not over yet, as she will undergo 12 rounds of chemo over the next several months.
Please send positive thoughts and prayers to this sweet, beautiful mama to be and her family. You can also keep up with her journey and find ways to help here: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/lindseymotley/journal
Upon meeting Lindsey and her husband Jay, the love between these two was so apparent, and it comforted me to know she has such a loving and supportive partner through all of this. You would have never known what Lindsey was going through by watching these two together – their session was all smiles, laughter, hugs and kisses. I had so much fun and felt so comfortable working with them, and am absolutely honored to have captured these moments for them.
