Portrait Sessions

Let us capture the fleeting moments of childhood

Welcome to a celebration of resilience and strength! Amy May Photography is proud to host an extraordinary event, offering FREE mini sessions to breast cancer patients and survivors, as we honor their #BeautifulBeyondCancer and their incredible journey of courage and survival.

Facing breast cancer is undoubtedly one of the most challenging journeys one can endure. It's a path marked by uncertainty, physical and emotional trials, and the need to navigate a complex healthcare landscape. Yet, within this journey lies the profound strength of the human spirit. Being strong—drawing upon inner resilience and the support of loved ones—becomes an invaluable weapon. It fuels the courage to face each treatment, the hope amidst the fear, and the persistence to embrace every small victory. This inner strength doesn't negate the difficult days or the vulnerability that comes with this fight, but it does illuminate the extraordinary power of the human will to overcome adversity. Each patient's strength, combined with the support of their community and healthcare team, creates a formidable force against the challenges of breast cancer.
