More photographs from Flashes of Hope shoot

It is a privilege and an honor to work with the families serviced by Flashes of Hope.  As the New York Chapter Director I coordinate bringing professional photographers into pediatric cancer treatment centers to photograph the patients and their families.  We also provide hair and makeup as well.

I am always blown away by the kids and their families.  They are incredibly strong through trying times I hope none of us ever know.  Although there are so many emotions very close to the surface, love is what always comes out.  The amount of thanks and gratitude that we volunteers receive for something we do every day is such a reward.

The grace that the families share centers me until the next Flashes of Hope photo shoot!

Below are photos taken by volunteer photographer Greg Morris of me goofing around with a younger brother of one of the patients.

Love kids fashion photography!

All my adult life I have been volunteering with children.  I have done literacy work in New York City elementary and high schools for 10 years, a volunteer for Catholic Big Brothers for 8 years, and have hosted 6 foreign exchange students through AFS, each for a full school year.

It goes without saying I love photographing kids.  Where it is not a large percentage of my work, I find it fun and gratifying.  The younger they are, the more difficult it is.  Try getting a cranky two year old to stand on a specific spot, facing forward, and smiling while the clothes look well styled!

I don’t share much of my children’s work, but here is a new collection from one of my NYC fashion clients.  We shot it this spring.  I am excited to hear it is already in 50 stores!
