In honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the I Heart Faces blog has posted a challenge to submit any pink photo. I have to admit, when I read about this challenge I really wanted to participate, but honestly I'm not a 'pink' kind of girl...my heart goes to baby blues, but I was determined to find a photo that would work! So in digging through photos all I could find was blue, until I came across a photo of my niece, Caroline. Thank goodness some pink and lots of it! The original photo was a bit saturated in the pink, so I toned it down a bit, adjusting the lighting and desaturating the colors a tad for a softer appearance.
I am really proud to participate in this challenge in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This challenge hits close to home for myself, and I'm sure countless others. A few years ago my aunt was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, but thankfully she is a fighter and through medication and prayer she was able to fight it and is cancer free to this day!
Enjoy my contribution to the Pink Week Photo Challenge, and be sure to check out the other amazing entries and read their empowering stories as well.
