Model: Boudoir customer Esther
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month in the UK and I couldn't think of a better time to share these beautiful boudoir images of gorgeous customer Esther. Esther had a slightly different reason to most for wanting to book a boudoir shoot. After finding out she was a carrier of the faulty BRCA genes (meaning that she has a much increased risk of developing both breast and ovarian canceer) she was booked in for a double mastectomy.
Esther came to the studio just before her operation and wanted to create some beautiful lasting imagery, but challenged me to include the Breast Cancer pink ribbon in some of her images. I was more than happy to rise to this challenge, and thoroughly enjoyed creating these beautiful but incredibly meaningful images for Esther.
And I think you'll all agree, not only does she look gorgeous but she's an incredibly inspiring and courageous young woman!
