One of my favorite parts about being a photographer is giving the gift of photography to families of The Gold Hope Project (TGHP). If you haven’t already heard of it, TGHP is a nonprofit organization of photographers all over the world who donate their services to families with children who are fighting cancer. Not only do we provide photography sessions at no cost to these families, but the Project is also dedicated to community involvement and raising awareness.
My recent family has been through a lot in the last couple years. Their older daughter, Betty, was diagnosed in May 2012 with Retinoblastoma. This cancer was contained in her right eye and a small part of that eye’s optic nerve. In the end, it was best to have her eye enucleated to remove the cancer.
Since then, Betty has been cancer free and never slowed down. She is so full of life, energy, laughter, and curiosity. She absolutely loves her little sister Millie, her parents, and all things that have to do with being a princess.
It was my pleasure meeting with Betty and her family for a photography session and then presenting their images to them afterwards. I hope you will enjoy them as you scroll below and that they will cherish these images for a very long time.
If you know a child who has fought or is currently fighting cancer, contact The Gold Hope Project today.
