Flashes of Hope

The last day of May I spent at Comer Children's Hospital as the photographer for the Flashes of Hope photoshoot. If you don't know about this non-profit please take a moment to view their site.
"Flashes of Hope is a nonprofit organization that changes the way children with cancer and other life threatening illnesses see themselves through the gift of photography and raises money for pediatric cancer research."

I got to work with eight families that day, from toddlers to late teens. Here are some of the images, it's always difficult to limit them down, but here goes

Once I have captured a few nice portraits I try to get a little of the family relationships

who doesn't love a big brother shot

Girls just want to have fun.

Laughing helps us all.

His Mom told me she would love a shot with the hat, of course he wasn't having it for a good while

Most of the images are taken in an office, desks moved out of the way etc.. so there isn't a lot of room for lighting, it's all about the face

Some are taken bedside

All are so meaningful to be a part of
