LIFE THREATENING DIAGNOSIS
From birth through adulthood, in the event that you or someone you know has been diagnosed with a life threatening illness, having pictures taken to capture the togetherness of family and friends can be very uplifting, as well as comforting to know there will be photographs to carry memories into the future.
STILLBIRTH or MISCARRIAGE
In the event of the tragedy of still birth or miscarriage, parents, siblings and grandparents suffer extreme confusion and heartbreak. The thought of having pictures taken at this time may seem odd or uncomfortable. But to capture the love you have for your baby in the short time that this little miracle is in your hands is priceless. These pictures will be cherished forever.
ELDERLY in END-OF-LIFE CARE
Preparing for the loss of a parent or grandparent in end-of-life care is difficult and upsetting. Having pictures taken to capture a family's togetherness and appreciation for life can be very uplifting, as well as comforting to know there will be photographs to carry memories into the future. Or imagine being able to hear their voice again, a favorite story or a message. Video recording services are also available.
The family will receive a photo care package including a thumb drive holding all their high resolution printable images in both color and black and white, a hand picked selection of 5x7 prints and a pair of photo charms. This care package is shipped directly to the family within about 2 weeks.
