Danile lives in Portland, but happens to have gone to college in NC in practically the same town as me and my roommate. It was a neat connection to have, and we’ve all become friends over the last few years living here. When we first met her she had long long dreaded hair. Unfortunately she was diagnosed with breast cancer last year and she lost her hair. She wanted to take some portraits to document this part of her life, so we did! Her dreads were awesome, but I think she looks so gorgeous and fresh even without hair!
