It was an honour to meet Richard and his mum Paula at the Village Hotel in Bettystown last week for a very special photoshoot. Richard is an incredible young man and his mum is quite possibly the strongest woman we have ever met. We would like to thank them both once again for choosing us to share in their journey and for allowing us to share their story with you all. Here is the message Paula very kindly sent us.......
"Dear Rachel and John,
Myself and Richard would both like to say thank you very much from the bottom of our hearts for your part in our journey. Your passion for what you do made us feel so comfortable on the day of our photoshoot. We just saw a sneak preview of some of the pictures, words cannot express how beautiful they are. We love them, all of them, wow !!!

When someone has cancer, their whole family and everyone who loves them is affected too.
Remember Next month (September) is childhood cancer awareness month. Please spread it. Children like Richard are just waiting TO BE CURED it's absolutely heartbreaking. We can't begin to find a cure for them without awareness, we need You to share awareness, its THE FIRST step of many steps to finding a CURE
Thanks so much Paula & Richard. Your portraits are beautiful and we're so very proud of them. Huge thank you to Louise, Paula's sister for all your help.
We would like to thank The Village Hotel in Bettystown for their kindness in letting us use their beautiful function room for the shoot and for looking after Richard & his family so well afterwards. Thank you Eddie, Angie, Sinead, Catherine & Sarah and all the staff.
