Death Stings. Photos Can Help.


As we sat in the doctor's office waiting for the results, our worst fears were confirmed. Our daughter, Skylar, had a terminal condition called Spinal Muscular Atrophy type 1 for which there is no cure. We were told that most babies don't see their first birthday...

I called a photographer friend of mine to come take pictures of her before her first surgery. Skylar ended up making it 21 wonderful months before we had to say goodbye. The photos we were given provided so much joy and have given us comfort in her absence.

Any time I heard of someone facing a terminal diagnosis, I offered a free portrait session as a way to pay it forward… 


You're not alone. We're in this together.

If you have a terminal diagnosis and are interested in a free portrait session and photo book, please apply today. We can't guarantee that we will be able to photograph everyone who applies, but we will do our best and look forward to hearing from you.

Preserving Memories, Spreading Love

For those facing a terminal diagnosis, a free portrait session preserves memories and captures the love that surrounds them. These moments will be showcased in a beautiful photo book given as a gift that can be enjoyed the moment it's opened until long after they are gone. It's through these sessions & books, as well as local events and our online community, where we establish meaningful relationships providing comfort and hope through the grief and healing process.
