Last year, I was honored to join Hilton Head Heroes, a non-profit group, as a volunteer photographer. This organization sponsors children with terminal illnesses to a family vacation on Hilton Head Island. The trip affords families time to get away from the daily challenges of dealing with a child’s illness, regroup as a family and have some FUN! While here, I provide a complimentary family photo shoot and give them the edited photos on a CD. Photographing these families is heart-warming, and I so enjoy capturing their personalities as they pose for the camera.
I photographed 14 families in 2014 and you can see a selection on the home page via the Hilton Head Heroes gallery. This year’s season has just started, so I will share a sampling of these shoots over the course of the year. Our first family is AMAZING! Over many years, they have adopted 7 special needs children, including those abandoned at the hospital. Their love and compassion is boundless!
