This blog follows both my personal and professional life, featuring my children, photography jobs, and of course, my love for animals. It's basically my own personal photo album combined with an information source for my clients. This site is very informal and allows me to share a little bit of my personality with you. :)

Gina's Courageous Battle with Breast Cancer - Utah Cancer Photographer

This as been one of my very favorite sessions ever. You see, Gina has taught me an absolutely amazing lesson through her example. Gina was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer many years ago, was in remission for eight years and now has been diagnosed with stage four cancer. It has spread to Gina's brain. As we were shooting these pictures, I was so inspired by her attitude. She is even more beautiful on the inside than she is on the out - and she is absolutely beautiful on the outside. Gina, Thank you so much for inspiring me, for teaching me that every day is a gift from God and to live it the very best I can. Thank you for helping me realize that I need to focus more on the special things in life, the relationships I have and most importantly to stop, breathe and enjoy every breath I have been given. ♥ Also, a special thank you to Jillian Joy for giving her time to help Gina feel more beautiful and pampered as her makeup artist. I could not have done it without you. And to my special Angel friend Kelly, for introducing me to Gina and for sharing her with me. ♥

If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer, or any other kind of cancer, please contact me. I would love to help document your story www.melissapapajphotography.com 801-859-8173
