October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we are offering FREE photo sessions!

Pinktober is here! I am a huge supporter of breast cancer research. I know a lot of women who have been affected by this, personally and would like to do something awesome for any woman/man who has been affected by this terrible cancer. I am offering free sessions. Info posted below. also, some facts from the CDC. PLEASE remember to do your monthly self breast checks. The more you do it, the more likely you are to detect any abnormality early. Have a blessed evening!
