kristi hedberg photography – you’ve come a long way, baby | asheville headshot photographer

I’ve now known Debbie for just over two years. She first came to me to document the progression of her battle against cancer….specifically, she called me because she was about to begin losing her hair, and it was longer than it had ever been before, so she wanted to document it. We just connected in that first session, and became such great friends. I was lucky enough to follow her progress over the last two years, progress that has brought her to the bright, beautiful, healthy woman she is today. Through it all, she never lost that gorgeous smile, or positive spirit. What a blessing she is to all who meet her. Today, we spent the day capturing some new headshots for some exciting new ventures she has coming up. Debbie, I am just so lucky to call you my friend. Here are your images!

Margi - These are incredible pictures of a very beautiful woman. And I would love to see some of the bald pictures as well. I think a friend’s mother needs to see them too!

Debbie - Kristi,
Words cannot express how much I appreciate your friendship during the most challenging part of my life. You were and are a gift to me.
The pictures you took before, during and after have helped me emotionally through this experience in ways you will never know.
You have supported me and lifted me at times when no one else could have given me that care. Your friendship and your talent have been a blessing to me. I am forever thankful. db

softservegirl - thank you for giving your time to document Debbie. Her photos are so beautiful and show such positivism and hope during a time that works against the very grain of who a person is while going through chemo. I am sure the experience has brought you to a different place – as well. how can you not be moved into a new space as a person. thank you!

Mick Black - I’ve got to know Deb through Flickr and your wonderful photographs.

She has been a wonderful inspiration and help to me when I was recently diagnosed and continues to be so.

Her words to me fit your pictures like a glove.
Thank you,
