From the HEART project
In a moment it all changed. Today you & your family are fighting cancer. I am here
to provide you with a portrait session from the heart. These sessions aim to celebrate your life, and the things that matter the very most to you! I truly believe that the best part about memories...is making them!
My entire life changed with just one phone call. It was April 7th, 2005. I was in the hallway at school. I was studying to be a Therapist. The doctor called and he said "Your mother isn't going home today. And you should come to Arizona to be with her". I was there just days later, she chose hospice home care. I sat with her, brought her truffles, and memorized her hands. I listened to her as she told me stories, shared memories and secrets and advice to last a lifetime. She died 32 days later. My most prized possessions are photographs taken on the lawn. My dad held her up by her britches (she thought that was hilarious), she put her arms around us to hide the IV in her arm. They really aren't good photos, but they are my photos. They are my families photos, and I hear her laughter ever single time that I look at them. I quit school when she passed.
15 years later, I found myself photographing what would turn out to be the most important images of my life. The time I spent with this amazing family changed my world again. They changed me. I bonded with them, and I was reminded of why I chose photography 10 years ago when I went back to college. To make a difference. To do something with impact.
So here I am, because of my family story, because of theirs. I'm giving back!
In an effort to give back, I have created two options that I hope will give you the opportunity to have photos captured.
Option One - 100% FREE
If you or your loved one has been diagnosed terminally ill, we will be offering your family this session as a gift, from my heart to yours. This includes shooting time (typically 30 minutes to an hour), travel within St Pete, and South Tampa. (Travel available for a small fee throughout the greater Tampa area).
Option Two - 33% off
If you or your loved one is currently receiving treatment for cancer, no matter your age, or stage of treatment, we would like to offer you 33% off the package of your choice.
**ALL OPTIONS INCLUDE FULLY RETOUCHED DIGITAL IMAGES.
These sessions can take place at a location of your choice, at home, the hospital or within hospice. I understand that this is a tough road, with good and bad days. Many of our clients have limited mobility, or no mobility at all. We will work together to make sure that your session is as stress & pain free as possible. Taking breaks as needed.
I want to capture your family's story.
I can't tell you how honored I would be!
