Good Samaritan Community Photo Shoot

Please enjoy our inspirational photos and consider supporting our mission to share hope with families who have a baby born prematurely or critically ill. Our programs include an online support group, the gift of photography, group events and meetings, information, and email support. Our mission is to connect parents and let them know they are not alone. We thank our supporters, volunteers, and donors for allowing us to touch the lives of NICU, preemie, and angel families. We pray these memories will help the parents to remember how strong they are in overcoming an extremely difficult time! 

In addition we have chosen to donate a potion of our time to surrounding organizations who also support families facing difficult situations. Good Samaritan is an amazing organization helping so many each year! We are blessed to be able to work with them and offer the gift of beautiful photography to their families as well! 

A note from our volunteer about the beautiful shoots...

"I was recently given the honor of photographing precious families that are part of the Good Samaritan group. This was my second session with them in the past few months. In total, I have photographed 9 families. These families have ranged from expecting their first child to newborns all the way up to having multiple children. These families are amazing in both their personalities and in their choices to carry their unborn children in difficult situations.

Some of the sessions were rather easy as the baby did not move very far, or the children were old enough to actually take the directions was giving them; although, sometimes their mom and dad had to translate to them first. I think the hardest session I had was with a set of twin little boys named Juan and Fran. They absolutely did NOT want their picture taken, a desire to play with the other children at the sessions, and an inability to understand the directions I was trying to give them. So I had to get a little creative with them. In the end, I did get some good photographs of them and their family as well as all the other families that I have been introduced to.

I am so glad, greatful, and honored that I was chosen for this assignment and can't wait to photograph more of these families in the very near future."
