Four Haircuts in an Hour
Last week I was asked to help a fellow photographer and friend by photographing her haircut. Four haircuts actually. Kimberli was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, and will soon be losing her hair due to chemotherapy. True to her spirit, she decided to turn last week into a celebration of her hair, which she has worn long since junior high school.
It was quite a wild ride, seeing her transform into 4 different women in such a short amount of time…and a bittersweet session at that. Luckily we got to see how she could look when her hair comes back. I think she is radiant in all of her “do’s”
Soon the hard part of her journey will begin. So many people face illness in so many ways, but I’m so grateful to have experienced the grace and good humor with which she is approaching this battle. I can guarantee this: if there’s fun to be had in any aspect of what’s to come, Kimberli will find it, and share it. I’m really glad she asked me to help document a small part of her story.
Kimberli will have other photographers help chronicle her journey every couple of weeks. You can follow her journey here.
