How We Work

When a child or teenager is diagnosed with cancer, trips to the hospital instantly become the new routine. Isolated from school, siblings and friends, it can be a challenge to find reasons to smile. Yet, children with cancer find a way.

We are honored to be there to capture those smiles and forever preserve images of courage, beauty and dignity.

By focusing on the child, we put cancer in the background. Volunteer stylists make every child feel special before they step in front of the camera with family, friends and often, a favorite nurse. A routine day quickly turns into a celebration of the love that surrounds them.

Every year, we provide free portrait packages to 7,000 children in 55 cities across the country. Each family is presented with framed enlargements, proofs and a CD of all the images. The portraits help the children see themselves in a new light. The images are not of sick kids, but of strong and beautiful children filled with hope.
