In April 2013 an organisation formed with a mission to bring together photographers across the UK and Ireland. To date over 400 professional photographers in 53 Counties of the UK offer complimentary pictures of hope to families of children with life threatening conditions.
Sessions are provided at homes, on location and sometimes hospice/hospitals depending on the child’s condition, and aim to capture heartfelt family memories. They would encourage any family with a child with a life threatening or shortening condition to apply, often they are contacted when a child is very poorly.
The Non profit network of UK photographers are focused on joining families of children or babies with potentially life shortening conditions with an established photographer in their area, providing a professional service and an agreed amount of images for free.
Everyone from the admin team to the photographers across the Country volunteer for free and give up time away from their own businesses or family to provide these sessions, they have an active Facebook page creeping up to nearly 5,000 followers.
