Be Bold, Feel Beautiful was launched in 2010 and
offers portraits of hope and inspiration to women who are
undergoing chemotherapy and have lost their hair. This
program is designed to raise awareness about the disease
as well as empower and embolden the women who battle it.

To date, we have photographed almost 70 women across the Greater Lansing Area. When these women lose confidence and feel very unattractive, we strive to make them feel beautiful and bold by demonstrating to them just how special and beautiful they are. Women who have participated feel stronger, more powerful, and more in control of their cancer. Our communities will be better places because these brave, strong, and confident women live and work in them.

One of our major sponsors, Douglas J Salon and Day Spa, provides each participant with a free make up application on the day of her shoot. She will also receive a professional portrait session; a CD containing retouched images with full rights for usage, a set of proofs from those images, and a free calendar at year’s end with her portrait included.

Please help us raise awareness of cancer in our community by spreading the word about Be Bold Feel Beautiful.
