Death Stings. Photos Can Help.
When facing a terminal diagnosis, photography is often the last thing on someone’s mind, but the first thing people turn to once a loved one dies. We want to make sure everyone has beautiful memories to bring them comfort and fill them with love.
DO MORE THAN DONATE…
We’re inviting you to be a part of something big. Our healthcare partners could send us hundreds of families facing a terminal diagnosis in a single day, but we don’t have the capacity to serve everyone! We’re inviting you to start a fundraiser to help us meet the demand. It can be silly, it can be serious, just make it your own! If you want to honor someone you love who has passed away or ask for donations instead of gifts, this is a great opportunity. Help us bring hope to families in need!
Preserving Memories, Spreading Love
For those facing a terminal diagnosis, a free portrait session celebrates life, preserves memories, and captures the love that surrounds them. These moments will be showcased in a beautiful custom photo album given as a gift to be enjoyed the moment it's opened. It's hand-crafted and designed to stand the test of time so their legacy and love can be shared with the generations to come.
It's through these sessions & albums, as well as local events and our online community, where we establish meaningful relationships to provide comfort and hope through the grief and healing process.
"After losing my only daughter, Skylar, to a terminal condition, grief and depression hit me hard. I was so grateful for the beautiful photos we had of our family of three. They created space for me to grieve, free of judgement, fear, or expectations and allowed me to be whatever I needed to be in that moment. The provided comfort, and they gave me a way to hold Skylar when she wasn't here to hold.
The photos helped me grieve and heal in ways I couldn't have imagined. I wanted to give that gift to others and began the journey that led to Love Not Lost..."
