Y'all, I'm so excited! SCAR STORIES are taking on a life of their own and I love it. The stories that I'm hearing and going to be able to share with you guys are amazing! Who would have thought that pictures of people with their scars would be able to have such an impact?
So far, I have photographed the gorgeous Mrs. Jenna Bell, heart transplant survivor and Mama of 2 gorgeous kiddos. Jenna was actually the inspiration for the project, as she came to me and wanted pictures of her scars. I am so excited to have partnered with her for the book portion of this project, as she'll be doing the interviews and the writing!
Last month, I had the beautiful Tracey Greene in my studio with her gorgeous 6 month old baby, Caroline. Since her scars are a a result of a super difficult pregnancy, emergency C-section and complications after the C-section, I wanted to photograph them together. There's a sneak peek of on of her favorites down below.
Still on the schedule for later this year, Mrs. Andrea Wongsam is flying in from Washington DC to shoot...Andrea is a heart attack survivor whose story is as beautiful as it is tragic and I can't wait to meet her! And, I am in chats right now with a suicide survivor whose message is one of hope.
These stories are amazing...and I am so thrilled and honored to be the one that gets to share them with the world. That said, for the book, I need a minimum of 20 people to photograph and share their stories...I'm still booking these sessions and will be doing so throughout 2018, with the hopeful publication and launch of the book in 2019! Do you know anyone with an amazing story that they might be willing to share? I'd love to chat with them...
For more info, please visit the Scar Stories page on my website: www.lindseyslattery.com/scarstories.html and submit your info so that I can touch base! I'm looking for all types of scars and stories...so please don't hesitate to share if you have ever considered having photos done of your scars.
I look forward to meeting you!
