As many of you know, I am a volunteer photographer for The Gold Hope Project, a non-profit organization that provides free photo shoots to families with a child who is currently fighting or is a survivor of cancer. Recently, I had the privilege of photographing a fighter named Torin and his family for TGHP.
In 2009, Torin was diagnosed with a brain tumor called diffuse leptomeningeal PNET. He has been on a tough road fighting this cancer, with treatments that have included chemo and radiation, but he remains an amazing and kind young man. Torin regularly volunteers his time teaching a little boy with a neuromuscular disorder how to master computer games such as Minecraft. Torin also enjoys reading and is an amateur novelist, working on his third novel! So impressive!
I met Torin and his family for his photo session in Seattle’s Seward Park on a beautiful summer day. Below are some of my favorite photos from Torin’s session with his family. I especially love that they included their dogs in the photo shoot. 🙂
If you know of a child who is currently fighting cancer or who is a cancer survivor, please contact The Gold Hope Project today to give them the gift of photography!
