The Maple Leaf Mission Sessions
Your Moment Session
To qualify for a “Your Moment Session” a family has one member of any age who is dealing with either a debilitating or potentially terminal illness (be it ongoing or in remission), a genetic condition, has undergone or is about to undergo major surgery or has survived a devastating physical accident but are living your everyday life to the fullest despite your diagnosis. Examples we have currently offered sessions to are- Epilepsy Seizures, Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Paralysis, Stroke, Blepharophimosis, you are in remission from cancer, you had open heart surgery, an amputation, any sort of transplant (kidney, heart, lung, liver ) we cannot name every condition but we will be sure to add to the list as we make memories for families, sky’s the limit for this category.
One More Moment Session
“One More Moment Sessions” are meant for those families with members of any age with terminal illnesses, who want to capture one last memory of their beloved before the end sadly comes.
For a “Terminal Prognosis or a Life limiting Diagnosis” (All age groups) of a family member, yourself or friends, even of a pet its hard to want to pick up your camera and capture that wonderful look of love, that single tear from a mother holding her child or just capturing that pure joy of any family together after such a devastating diagnosis.
Pictures are often the only tangible items that we have left when our precious gifts are taken away or altered in any way. We know how hard this time is for you and your family and know that memories are one of the most important things a person can keep forever.
We would be absolutely honored to help you in making those memories come true. We offer Photography sessions absolutely free of charge at any time after a prognosis/diagnosis has been made. These sessions can be taken from your/their healthiest to your/their sickest and there is NO limitation on who has to be terminally ill to qualify as we accept any/all situations and any ages. This session does not have to be taken during your loved ones final moments but can be requested if that is what is needed or wanted.
Military Moment Session
For homecoming reunions we strive to capture the pure love and joy that you show the world when you see your loved one for the first time after their journey abroad. Its absolutely unbelievable capturing those beautiful faces that light up as a mother or father, sister or brother, son or daughter even aunt or uncle walks off the airplane after a long period of time of not being able to see or touch each other.
For deployments majority of individuals are overcome with their own emotion that the camera is often forgotten in their hand as they give kisses and hugs for the last time as they leave for their deployment.
Injured soldiers are offered sessions with their families to celebrate the life they have together despite the devastating injury.
If you are part of any branch of the Military then our goal is to capture those moments that can never be captured again for you. We are going to make a difference in many families lives that are dealing with deployments and homecoming reunions.
We also offer regular sessions as a pre-deployment or after a homecoming as we know not everyone is able to participate in and actual homecoming/deployment.
