This week I volunteered for Flashes of Hope photographing Kids with Cancer at Children’s Hospital Colorado. Another photographer who was scheduled for the sessions was sick. Even a runny nose prevents photographers from photographing these kids many of which can’t leave their hospital room. We have to wear clean gloves, masks and gowns into each different room after carefully scrubbing our hands. Then while in their rooms be careful to not touch anything.

Flashes of Hope is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating powerful portraits of children fighting cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.

Special thanks to Jenna Blongiewicz who assisted me with this session at Children’s Hospital. Jenna hired me to photograph her wedding 8 years ago and we’ve been good friends since. Now she has 2 children and is learning to be portrait and documentary family photographer.

Working with these kids and their families helps me to put my own life into perspective and be great full for my good health. It’s an honor to be able to give each child a few minutes of my time to capture a little bit of their personality.

Happy Halloween!

Today I was invited to make Halloween portraits of children at Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children in downtown Denver. I was volunteering for Flashes of Hope, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating powerful, uplifting portraits of children fighting cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. The Denver Chapter Director, Betsey Holley put out an email last week looking for a photographer at the last minute and I immediately knew I wanted to do it. I’ve done many of these portrait sessions over the years and I’m always touched by the personalities of kids who are going though hell but want to have their pictures taken.

At the end of the sessions today one young lady dressed as a princess with her little brother in tow, dressed as Batman, came back an asked to have her picture taken with Betsey, dress as a witch, and has worked with many of the children for several years.

Cheers, Kent

Recently I volunteered to photograph children with cancer at Children’s Hospital Colorado. It had been more than a year since the program Flashes of Hope was able to do portraits of children and their families because of the concern for spreading colds, flu and other illnesses. Geri and I photographed 13 kids, ages 9 months to 10 years old. Many of the photos needed to be made while the kids were isolated in their hospital rooms.

This was the fourth time I’ve photographed for the Flashes of Hope program, and it’s always a humbling feeling to look deeply into each of these kids’ eyes and do my best to draw out their personalities.

Cheers, Kent
