Apply for a Photography Session

If you (or an immediate family member) have a terminal diagnosis, and are interested in a free photo session and photo book to preserve your memories, we encourage you to apply today. We would love to capture some great moments with your loved ones and give you a beautiful album that can be cherished for generations to come.

Due to this being extremely personal, we request that the person filling out the application be the person who is affected by the illness. If they are unable to apply, a spouse or immediate family member can apply on their behalf. If it's a child who is affected, we ask that a parent apply. If you are a friend or co-worker and would like to gift a photo session to someone, you can request a session certificate from our Grief and Empathy Tools page.

We can't guarantee that we will be able to photograph every applicant, but we will do our best!

How It Works

To be considered for a free portrait session and photo book, we request that the person with the terminal diagnosis be the one to apply.

Apply Online

To get started, please fill out our online application below. We'll ask for your contact information and why you think we should give you a portrait session & photo book. We review each application and look forward to hearing from you!

We'll Give You a Call

Once you apply, a representative from Love Not Lost will call you for an interview as a part of the selection process. Please know that we will try to photograph as many people as we possibly can, but we may not be able to serve everyone who applies. 

Schedule Your Photo Session

Once selected, a photographer will call you to schedule your session, cover remaining details, answer your questions, and make sure all forms are signed and returned. You’ll preserve memories together and receive the album after your session.

If you are applying, we want you to know that we are honored you are inviting us into your life and we look forward to learning more about your story. We look forward to speaking with you soon! Thank you.

What You Can Expect

We'll do our best to answer all of your questions in the phone calls leading up to your session. During the session, you can relax and enjoy your time together knowing you'll have beautiful images to preserve your memories. Our photographers are professionals, so no matter the situation, we can capture some meaningful moments that are worth remembering.

After the session, we work quickly to edit photos, then design and create the album. Due to the quality of the album, it takes 6-8 weeks to produce and deliver it into your hands, but we promise it will be worth the wait! These albums are crafted to stand the test of time so you can pass them along to future generations.

We'll contact you to make sure you received your album and share how you can get additional artwork if that's something you want. With your permission, we'll share your story on our website and social media so that others can be encouraged by your journey.

If you have any questions, you can review our FAQ page or fill out our contact form.
