A scar means you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you…

This is Holly a beautiful inspirational young woman who despite life throwing everything at her including two life saving organ transplants last year she has survived and she is educating others about the dangers of Diabetes. I felt super privileged to meet and take shots of Holly and to meet her lovely husband Lynton who also came to her shoot (Holly uses a wheel chair so she needed some assistance). Holly explained to me bravely that the shoot was part of her healing, to show her scars and not feel any shame, to accept them and show others she won the battle.

I promised to share some of her images as she asked as she wants other young people who are Diabetic to take the condition seriously and she also wants to show other people who have scars that it’s okay to show them.

All images taken at Boudoirvous studio in Colchester, Essex.

Note to self – Always carry a camera.

We are so busy rushing around in our own bubbles going from one thing to the next it is easy to miss things. This was taken coming home from a family Xmas ‘do’ the mist was rolling in across the fields and the sun was low in the sky. I wish I had my ‘big’ camera on me but I sometimes take out an old compact camera (Fuji 10X) Im glad I did as my camera phone just didn’t register the colours of the sky.
