You may be familiar with these photos but I never shared much of the backstory. I can’t begin to imagine what it might be like to be a child or the parents of a child with cancer. If you are a 101.1 WIXX listener, you are familiar with Brody’s childhood cancer story. Katie is part of the morning show and was very open about her experience on-air. This inspired me. I reached out to her with an idea. I wanted to use what I do, creative photography, to bring some joy to Brody. After some back and forth, we decided on a superhero photoshoot to illustrate Brody’s strength as he fought and eventually, beat cancer. Cancer is part of his story, sure, but what will define this chapter will be his “superhero” strength and he has these images to showcase that. #BrodyStrong
When I went into this, I knew I wanted to create something special for Brody. What I didn’t expect though is to walk away so inspired by his strength. It ended up being an amazing experience.
