Flashes of Hope is a really special organization to be involved with. Their mission is to photograph children touched by cancer and other life-threatening illnesses, to help change the way they see themselves while also raising money for cancer research. I was first contacted by flashes of hope a few years ago – this was our second shoot for the organization. The shoots are always a little chaotic – we head out to camp catch a rainbow and basically try and wrangle kids as they’re playing. We only get a couple of minutes with each child, so it’s always a fun challenge to create a meaningful portrait. We worked with a really great group of kids this year and had a fun afternoon! Here’s a little ‘mashup’ of some of my favorites. Until next year!
