WARRIOR - noun - 1. a person who is engaged or experienced in warfare; soldier. 2. a person who shows or has shown great vigor, courage, or aggressiveness.
It is the last day of 2018 and I can’t think of a better way to end the year than to take a look back at Ramblin’ Rose photography’s 2018 WARRIOR photo shoot and celebrate these beautiful, brave, bad ass women one more time!
For those of you who do not know, the WARRIOR photo shoot features women who are currently fighting cancer or are in remission. These women are treated to a day of pampering that includes the full glam treatment by professional make up artists and hair stylists and then they each get their own mini photo shoot. It is a day for these women to come together and celebrate life and be reminded of just how beautiful they truly are.
When I started doing this photo shoot back in 2016, I truly had NO idea how much it would inspire, empower, and change me! These women have experienced one of the most terrifying things in life and have shown so much courage, vulnerability, and strength along the way. They are using their battle with cancer as an opportunity to grow, empower, educate, and live life bigger than ever before.
The day started with giving our WARRIORS the super model treatment provided by the most kick ass glam squad around!
And then I got to put each of these gorgeous women in front of my camera! I guess I’m biased but that is always my favorite part! Seriously, look how beautiful they are!!!
And now, drum roll please, I want to introduce each of the 2018 WARRIORS starting with this hottie right here!

Thank you CRAVE!
It takes a village!
I could NEVER pull this off on my own and my village is the best! Seriously, I had the most incredible group of women that volunteered their time & talents to make sure the WARRIORS had the best day ever!
THANK YOU VILLAGE!
With the images from this photo shoot, we created a 2019 WARRIOR calendar and all the proceeds from the sell of the calendar were donated to THE Pink Wig project. The calendar completely sold out!!!
I want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who purchased one of our calendars. Because of you, we were able to raise $3,150 for Pink Wig project.
I cannot wait to meet a new group of amazing WARRIOR women in 2019!
xoxo, Kim (aka Ramblin’ Rose)
