After wrapping up holiday sessions, we have very exciting news to share with everyone. Studio 731 Photography is now a photographer for the Magic Hour Foundation!
About Magic Hour:
This amazing foundation is a 501c(3) non-profit organization that provides photography services to individuals and families battling cancer. They provide free photography sessions as well as images for cancer patients. Having lost my maternal grandmother and cousin to cancer this is another way I can give back. I wish such an foundation did not have to exist, and there was a cure in place, but until that happens I look forward to connecting to these brave families and our community.
Magic Hour refers to the half hour at the beginning and ending of each day as the sun transitions and casts a golden yellow glow. It is light at its most beautiful and photographers will wait to capture it. Our recipients are in the magic hours of their lives – some are transitioning out of life on this earth and we aim to capture their beauty and preserve it for their families. Some have overcome and are transitioning into a life with more clarity and purpose, disease-free. We want all cancer warriors to have the opportunity to remember how beautiful they are and how poignant this time is in their life and the lives of their families – free of charge and free of complication.
Magic Hour Foundation is a nation-wide network of professional photographers that want to “shoot cancer in the face!” We are developing relationships with treatment centers around the country and accept online applications/nominations for cancer patients and survivors to have a free portrait session with a Magic Hour photographer in their area.
If you are currently receiving treatment for cancer, or have been cancer-free for 2 years or less, you can apply for a free session. If you would like to nominate someone you love for a Magic Hour photo session, you can do so by clicking on the link below:
