Sometime in 2011 or 2012 my friend, then doing her residency at Children’s Hospital ran across Soulumination. She told me about them and suggested I volunteer. I couldn't imagine it, too difficult.
See Soulumination provides free photography services to families with children 18 and under, some shoots are family portraits or birthdays but many more are in the hospital documenting the last moments that parents get to spend with their child. I couldn't, but the concept peculated for the then next few years. Finally I contacted Lynette Johnson the founder of Soulumination.
I have been able to spend time with a number of families and take pictures. Pictures from shoots are not mine but belong to Soulumination and the families.
Please see a their website and work.
