Flashes of hope

"Flashes of Hope is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating powerful, uplifting portraits of children fighting cancer and other life-threatening illnesses."

We were privileged to have a Flashes of Hope photo shoot in December during our clinic visit. It was a real surprise, last-minute thing as they were just wrapping up and we didn't know they were going to be there that day--they're usually there on Mondays, and only every other month.

Yesterday, during our clinic visit, we received our Flashes of Hope package. It included a leather folio with two 8x10s, 11 proofs and a CD with the 11 photos on it. We share copyright privileges for the photos--which essentially means that as long as we don't use them for personal gain, we can post them on the internet and make copies.

We are uplifted by these portraits of our courageous, conquering hero, James. We hope you are too!

Love, Stephanie

Thanks, Marie. It was a really fun time. James wasn't sure about it all at first, but he warmed up quickly and we are thrilled with how well the photos came out!

I should have mentioned that all the particiants are volunteers and the photos we receive are totally free to us. It really is a BIG blessing!

Love, Stephanie
