It has been awhile since I have had the opportunity to post on this blog, but this story I could not pass up. A few weeks ago I received an email from Robin Lenihan inquiring about a headshot session for her daughter. There was something different about this email though. In it she asked about the possibilities of capturing intimate photographs of her and her husband. Through the email I found out that her husband Jimmy was diagnosed with cancer. This was something I did not have to think about, I just knew I had to do it. Certain projects come along that are just bigger and more important that everything else. So I said without a doubt I would do it, but they had to just trust me.
After we chatted on the phone a few times and collaborated, also easing Robin's mind on what I wanted to capture, the one thing that kept coming out of Robin's mouth was that her and her husband are truly "One". That is all I needed to get my mind rolling. I knew exactly what I wanted to capture.
You only have to spend two minutes with Jimmy and Robin and you can clearly see that "Soulmates" do exist. Cancer does not stand a chance!
