Photographing children and teens with life-altering medical condition

August 13, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

With fellow photographers and the Seattle chapter of "Flashes of Hope" charity we went to Camp Korey in Carnation, WA to make a portrait of every child or teenager attending the camp. Camp Korey’s mission is to honor the courage, strength, and determination of children living with serious and life-altering medical conditions and their families; and to provide them with a safe, friendly, medically sound environment in which to simply have fun and be kids.

I was assigned to photograph kids at the end of the zip-line, one of the 2 wheel-chair accessible zip-line in the country.

The excitement, the smiles, and the happiness demonstrated by the kids was truly amazing to me, and although I was a bit nervous before, it ended up being an extremely enjoyable session for everyone.  

Here are a few portraits from this event:   

I wanted to thank again all Camp Korey staff and Flashes of Hope local chapter for giving me this opportunity!
