Tonya | {Tacoma Portrait Photography}

I feel like this has been a long season for me and the people around me of weathering storms.  I don’t know why it feels heavier than usual…but, it just does!  While I have had to take a lot of extra time off recently to care for my dad during his brain surgeries and the slow recovery afterwards…I have also been praying for many people who are fighting cancer, sick children, and debilitating diseases.  I wish I could make it all stop.  I wish I could wave my hand through the air and make every body healthy and happy.  But, the truth is…that’s not how life works.  That’s not how God works.  But, I do believe that as our storms bring pain and challenges…when we see those victories in other peoples’ lives they are SO much sweeter…and they give us hope to keep on fighting!

And…that brings me to Tonya!  I was so honored to be asked to capture some images of these spunky, beautiful, and hilarious woman just a few days before she was scheduled to have her big surgery to remove all the cancer from her body!  She had already gone through an intense round of chemotherapy, but, as you can see….it didn’t blow out her light!tacoma photos, cancer survivor, Chelle Nicole PhotographyTonya was a bridesmaid in a wedding I did last fall…so, I was already a little bit prepared for her “craziness”!  She’s a hoot!tacoma photos, cancer survivor, Chelle Nicole Photography…and she is brave!  Facing cancer has to be so scary…but, she did it with a light in her eyes, a smile on her face, and a fight in her heart!tacoma photos, cancer survivor, Chelle Nicole PhotographyOh…and tons of laughter!!!  This is actually what most of my images from that night look like!  haha!!!
