I Have Arrived!

Okay, that may be a little dramatic. I haven't exactly "arrived." ;-)
But I have been published for the first time! Woo hoo!
Back in October, I was commissioned by CURE Magazine to create a few environmental portraits of an oncology nurse with one of her patients. The magazine was putting together a book to honor "extraordinary healers" nominated through essays by cancer patients. One of the nominated oncology nurses (Linda) is located here in KC and I was lucky enough to be hired to photograph her with her patient (Patricia). I found both women to be quite extraordinary; I really enjoyed our brief time together creating these portraits.

Anyways, I just received a copy of the book and needless to say I'm very excited! It's really neat to see the finished product. Patricia's essay is amazing and was one of three finalists! So cheers to Linda & Patricia!
