Our bodies tell the story of our lives. They grow and change with time, and adapt to the events that shape us. Our scars map what we have survived, they reflect the resilience of our flesh and also our spirit. Pre/post surgery photography can be not only a way to record your body throughout this journey, but also help with the emotional process of dealing with these changes.
For women who are about to have a mastectomy, the photographs may be a way of recording their breasts as a reference for reconstructive surgery, or they can be a way to honour and thank their pre-op bodies by capturing them forever in an image. The photo-shoot can also be an act of strength, to create artistic beauty and reclaim a sense of self in a whirlwind of uncertainty. Post surgery photo-shoots, be it weeks, months or years, can help with the physical and emotional transition, and be a way to celebrate your body and your life. Everyone has their own reasons.
Pre/post surgery photoshoots are done at your home. From small flats to large houses, all that's needed is natural light. Payment of £450 is due on the day of the shoot. This is a flat fee that covers the home visit, the shoot, individual editing of all your images, a minimum of 50 Jpeg files and a private online gallery sent to you within two weeks.
