When I get these calls, I do everything I can to get to the hospital for these pictures. This is all they have left of her…pictures. That is why I print the images for these families. So they can touch the images with their fingers and I can only hope it brings back nothing but the best memories. The smell of her, the softness of her skin and mostly her little features so they will never forget how she looks…every little detail.
This particular session, I was there to capture dad seeing her for the first time with all life saving measures removed, no tubes, and no longer alive on earth. You bet I cried! That is a question I get a lot. Well of course I cry. Sometimes with the families, sometimes when I walk out the door, sometimes on my drive home, sometimes at home, sometimes all of the above.
Little Heroes offers families with terminally ill children (18 & younger) or terminally ill adults with children (18 & under) a session, keepsake slideshow, digital files, 5×7 prints of all images and a wall portrait. Sometime we go to these families in the middle of the night, sometimes we go out of town, some are in the hospital, some are at home, some are on location…it all depends on the situation and although I have photographed many families since 2007, no two stories are the same. No two situations are the same. I never really know what I am walking into exactly.
With this said, I am humbly going to ask for donations. Little Heroes could use donations. Please consider Little Heroes for your end of year tax write off. Maybe as a business or an individual. I’m happy to send you a receipt if you want one. We have our annual fundraiser next month but could use donations now. Please consider donating to help these families receive the products and services that they will cherish forever. No donation is too small or too big. Thank you for your consideration.
