Flashes of Hope STL

Flashes of Hope is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating powerful, uplifting portraits of children fighting cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. We turn the hospital into a full service photo studio, bringing lights, backdrops, make-up artists and a much needed change of pace for the families. As volunteer chapter director for Flashes of Hope - St. Louis I am truly honored to have had a small part in photographing over 1,200 children since the chapter was founded in 2010.

Every family receives a mounted enlargement, proofs from the photo shoot, plus a link to a private online gallery they can share with family and friends. The photographs capture a moment in time and show kids being silly and serious, bashful and bold, giggly and grumpy. No matter what emotion the child expresses, the images are not of sick kids, but of strong a beautiful children filled with hope.

I volunteer to help children show the world their strength and determination.
I raise funds for pediatric cancer research because every child deserves a lifetime of memories.

You can support Flashes of Hope with a donation of any amount so we can continue to help these incredible children smile at our photo shoots.
