Heartfelt is a volunteer organisation of professional photographers from all over Australia and parts of the UK, dedicated to giving the gift of photographic memories to families that have experienced stillbirths, premature births, or have children with serious and terminal illnesses.
Thanks to my friend Priscilla, who suggested I apply, I am proud to say I am a participating photographer. So far I have photographed five families.
Yesterday I photographed a treasured, adored and much loved little girl who is as pretty as an Angel. She and her whole family welcomed me warmly, thanked me graciously and may not have known how much they gave me.
All the families I have met have been so warm, welcoming and appreciative, and have displayed incredible grace at such tender and tragic times in their lives.
