In May of 2011, we launched the Oldham Kids program, offering families
with children suffering from various cancers, as well as other life
threatening illnesses, the opportunity to live a fantasy through
portraiture. This program gives children the chance to have
their photos taken with costumes, stuffed animals and other
whimsical props while taking their minds off treatments
Children facing a cancer diagnosis or any diagnosis that is life
threatening have a long road ahead. They may face days and weeks of invasive treatments, chemotherapy, hair loss and faltering self-esteem. We want to honor these heroic children by creating a fun, positive and memorable experience. These photographs also offer parents and other loved ones hope and a short break from needles, treatments and pain, with images of their children in a happy atmosphere. Children have the opportunity to feel special, have fun, be normal, AND feel like a star!
Each child who participates in the Oldham Kids program will receive a CD containing retouched images with full rights for usage, a set of proofs from those images, a digital video production of the images from their session, a 16 x 20 canvas wrap print of the image of their choice, and a free calendar at year’s end with their image along with their professional portrait session.
Please help us give these families a lasting memory by helping us spread the word about the mission of Oldham Kids and getting these brave fighters through our doors.
