Hero Sessions with Samantha & Caroline Photography
Our business Samantha & Caroline Photography, began by two young woman who started off as complete strangers but were brought together by one dream. It all started when Caroline & I chose to attend a 10-month photography school. We had no idea that when we became roommates, we would not only become best friends but we would also become business partners. We first realized towards the middle of our school experience, that we would become a great team when we discovered that we both had the same passion for giving back to others. Once we decided to start a business together, our first thoughts were not about how we could make money but how we would share with others the gift of our photography. I have been involved with volunteering for various childhood cancer foundations for years after battling my own health struggles. These special kids captured my heart and I knew that I wanted to give back to these amazing heroes in anyway I could. Once Caroline learned about all of these children, she knew she too wanted to give back. In an effort to give back, shortly after our business was started, we partnered with a local childhood cancer foundation called Colin’s Crew. We started offering Hero sessions. These sessions are free to families afflicted by childhood cancer. We found that these families have so many expenses and they do not always have extra money for something like a family portrait. We realize how important any image of a family or child can be especially when they are faced with so much. These Hero families are so appreciative and keep the pictures as a treasure. The sessions we provide are like no other because they are filled with so much love and joy. To be a part of such an experience where these families put aside their struggles for an hour and laugh together is inspiration for us to give them this gift of memories. We truly feel so blessed to know that we have the ability to change someone’s day and make it a little brighter during such a dark time in their life. Having this business has inspired us more then we could have ever imaged.
