This fund was created in honor of a beautiful young woman I had the honor of photographing (along with her sister) back when I was an amateur photographer. She tragically passed away at the age of 23 after coping with bone cancer.
I don't want any person with a terminal illness to leave this earth without a beautiful portrait for their family members to remember them by.
I want mothers to remember daughters, sons to remember fathers, and everyone in-between.
Let's use my skill as a lifestyle photographer to capture emotive, soulful portraits, celebrating our lives and the connection we share.
-here's the full story-
(it'll take four minutes of your time)
While these photo sessions will be given freely to families, they are not free for me to provide.
I will be gifting my top collection (retail value: $850), which means that each family will be able to keep their complete set of digital images, plus a wall hanging or heirloom album for their home worth up to $300 in the gallery shop.
There are also the added costs of running a photo business such as gear, editing, and travel expenses to name a few.
As such, I will be raising money to support this endeavor.
Honorary sessions are limited to four unique families per year.
Because this endeavor is so close to my heart, I too am donating toward it.
A portion of every regular photo session with NBP will be given back to the Beth-elle Memorial Fund.
Where Do I Apply?
You can apply either for yourself or for another family you know of by filling out the application below.
I have the capacity to serve 4 families per year (one photo session each) who live within a 25 mile radius of Lebanon, Pennsylvania.
If chosen, you will hear from me within 2-4 weeks.
I know you are coping with a lot right now.
I hope to provide you with a beautiful, emotive portrait--a little bit of light in what may feel like a dark place.
Extra precautions will be taken to provide a safe, germ-free experience for these families
I will wear a mask, use hand sanitizer, and test for covid before each session
