Mother and son for Flashes of Hope

Once again I was privileged to photograph some portraits of young cancer patients and their families for Flashes of Hope, a non-profit that provides free portraits for cancer patients and their families. I like portraits, I like kids, so it was a great match.

There were four of us photographers, all ASMP members, working at the Steven D. Hassenfeld Children’s Fun Day for patients at the NYU Langone Medical Center. (Flashes of Hope likes to work with members of ASMP to insure quality photographs and quality experiences.)

I managed to photograph 10 kids and their families that day, and learned, as I always learn when I do this, that kids are kids. And so, thankfully, are some adults.

Here are some of the kids and their families:

My profuse thanks to the kids, their families, Flashes of Hope, and my fellow photographers.
