Book a portrait with mom as a Relay For Life fundraiser for Ladies Who Fight team

Bookings being accepted for May 17 and 18

Open to everyone! This is a great opportunity to have a special photograph of you and your mom while raising funds for a very special cause. We are very excited to announce a fundraiser for the Ladies who Fight Relay for Life team.

I think it is fair to say almost everyone has been impacted by cancer. My beautiful mom is a survivor, I lost a close inspiring friend in her 30s, and four years ago my studio manager Christine lost her mom, too young and too quickly, to breast cancer.

Last year we were moved by the work that some women in our community were doing to fight cancer. These women have come together to form a driven Relay for Life team, under the title Ladies Who Fight. These Ladies Who Fight are 14 women standing up against cancer. They’re a mix of survivors, fighters and supporters. Many of these women are our friends and our clients, and we wish with all our heart that they didn’t have to have this journey. We felt called to contribute to their inspiring work.

While obviously, their goal is to raise funds, we recognize that the Ladies Who Fight is much bigger than this. Their collective is a place of healing, it’s a community that empowers and supports each other, and it helps raise awareness about cancer.

McKinnon Photography, The Ladies Who Fight, and Natalee Rhodes, from Generations Laser have come together to present the Cancer Survivors and Supporters Portrait Event.

When: May 17 between 2-7 p.m. (if this time doesn’t work for you, please let us know as we may also open up May 18)

What it is: You will arrive at the studio for a makeup touch-up with Natalee Rhodes. Then Karen McKinnon will create your intimate black and white studio portrait. The session will include a printed 11×14 wall portrait of the image that is most meaningful to you. Additional prints are available.

Who is this for: This is for anybody that wants to support these incredible women. $150 from each session will go towards the Ladies Who Fight Relay for Life team and $50 will help cover some of the costs of this portrait event. The studio is a beautiful venue for intergenerational relationships and also for those who want a special picture of themselves. We can promise privacy for those who want a photo that is a bit more vulnerable. We ask that each grouping is a max of three people. If you’re unsure if this is for you, please message us as we are open to include anyone who feels moved to participate. This is not just for cancer survivors.
