THE BEST THING ABOUT A
PICTURE IS THAT IT
NEVER CHANGES,
EVEN WHEN THE PEOPLE IN IT DO.

Welcome To Light the shadows Project

WHAT IS ‘LIGHT THE SHADOWS’?

Shadows are hard times, they can be felt in times of darkness and grief… we want to help cast some light on these shadows. The Project offers compassion photography to families, we hope that when we come to take photos of you and your loved one(s) it is something that is part of the healing process and that you can look back on. We hope that these photos are a legacy that you can hold on to and cherish forever.

 

WHAT IS COMPASSION PHOTOGRAPHY?

The dictionary describes compassion as a concern for the sufferings of others, it is also brotherly love, care, empathy, and consideration. This is compassion, and you already know what photography is… so put these two together and you have compassion photography, made possible by a group of amazing photographers who bless families in need with their talents here in Winnipeg Manitoba and surrounding.

If your baby was born sleeping, or your family is struggling with the juggle of specialist appointments, treatments and stays in and out of the hospital in a terminal health situation, family photos are not on the top of the list of things that are a priority. Family is the priority, as it should be… being there for your loved one who is trying to overcome critical health circumstances. When we find ourselves in such a position, we can often forget how important photos are for legacies, remembering and for just soaking in the love and time you have right now. You may be emotionally, physically or financially exhausted… or maybe you haven’t even thought of doing family photos right now, we want to come and photograph your family, kids, baby for you to hold on to these photos forever. We’d like to make this an easy process, so you’ll find that it’ll be at no cost to you. This is our gift to you, along with our prayer for healing.

READY TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT BOOKING YOUR FAMILY SESSION?

We believe that every family dealing with the tragedy of critical illness should have family, baby or child photos. If you, your child or another member in your immediate family is suffering because of a terminal illness your family is eligible for a donated (no cost to you) family session.

A terminal diagnosis for you, your child or spouse changes every aspect of your life. We may not understand the emotions and hardships you may be feeling as you fight this battle together, but we can help you preserve this precious time together. We want you to have photos to cherish forever and for the process to be simple and a blessing.
