What We Do
Love Not Lost is on a mission to revolutionize the way we grieve in America.
We have three programs to do this: our photography program, our grief support program, and our corporate care program.
Through our photography program, we photograph people facing a terminal diagnosis to preserve memories. With the help of our generous donors, we provide professional portrait sessions as well as a beautiful hand-crafted photo albums at zero cost to the families we serve. If you’re looking to receive a session, you can read through our process below and click the button to request a session.
Before each session, one of our team members will call you to learn more about your story, beyond what you write in the application. You'll be matched with a lead photographer who will call you to schedule your photo shoot and get to know each other a little better. We'll make sure you have all of your questions answered and feel comfortable before you step in front of the camera for your portrait session.
During each session, we focus on celebrating life and capturing the love you share as a family through beautiful photos. Usually there are moments of laughter, sometimes tears, but love and smiles shine through in every shoot. No matter the situation, our professional photographers enter into that space with our recipients and their loved ones to preserve memories free of judgement and full of love.
After each session, we design a photo album that's hand-crafted and created to last through the generations. These albums are designed to bring joy and peace the moment they are opened and with the turn of every page. When it's time, the book can be passed along to loved ones to bring comfort and hope through the grieving and healing process.
Through the sessions, photo books, online resources, local events, and community, we establish meaningful relationships to support people in grief. Our desire is for the Love Not Lost community to be a safe place where people are loved, known, and understood through grief.
We believe everyone deserves to be loved and remembered.
