When funny people meet . . . Cancer treatments has given us alot of limitations, has robbed us from beauty and taken away our confidence. As a little girl, we have always dreamt of what our big day will be like and how we would look as a bride. But having cancer has stripped some of us from fulfilling these dreams. Alot of cancer survivors has postponed or even cancelled their big day. For me, as a cancer survivor, I dreamt the day I marry the love of my life. Dreamt, what it is like to look like a bride, to feel like a bride. Having gone through cancer treatments (chemotherapy, etc.), losing my hair was by far the hardest thing I ever had to go through. I felt that I was not beautiful enough to be loved and was not beautiful enough to look or ever feel like a bride. Hair, it is our 'crowning glory' and having that taken away from you is devastating. But we choose to accept what we have, appreciate what we are and welcome what is coming . .

Taking the leap! . . The next person Navi got on board was @pattushastra of course! I knew they could never go wrong with the saree selection and I just love their professionalism. . . . And here we have the bride jumping in joy mode. Once a dancer, always a dancer I guess! She also wanted this idea to be an inspiration not only for cancer patients but to those who are having a tough time . . .

Portrait tips, just say something silly to crack them up, or maybe my models just naturally hear my voice and start laughing, not sure which is which. I love portraits with the dead stare, as much as I love portraits with laughter! . . @naviindranpillai told me her idea was to portray herself as a bride, but has got loads of complications to deal with, and this bride is going to be an example, that life still can go on if you put your heart to it. This bride, made the whole concept effortless for me! . . .

But Navi isn't someone who let that take a toll on her spirit. Navi has been enjoying her life to the fullest, all set to get married. Moreover, she has gotten a fantastic bridal photoshoot done, pictures of which are being admired all over the world. Take a look at some of the photos. Take a look at some of the beautiful pictures:

The beaming 28-years-old is fighting against cancer with all the confidence in the world, and it clearly reaches to us via all these amazing pictures. We wish for a speedy recovery for Navi.
