Her pictures have gifted wonderful memories to hundreds of people. But this is a special photo that has burned itself into Kate’s memory forever. It is the picture of a woman whom she had asked to photograph while she gave birth to her first child.

One of her breasts is removed and she is subjected to chemotherapy – all while she carries an unborn child inside her womb.

After 36 weeks, the doctors induce birth so they can treat her cancer – so that she survives for her child. As the newborn attaches himself to Kate’s single remaining breast, emotions run deep through the room.

The photographer Kate Murray is present first hand to capture this singular moment: “That is the definition of strength, love, and pure beauty,” she writes on her Facebook page.
