It’s very easy to get caught up in our daily life stresses; financial trouble, falling outs with family or friends, falling short of a goal…but these photos continue to remind me that life is simply about this: living to the fullest and keeping those we love close to us for now, and forever. A company based in Washington called “Soulumination” is a non-profit organization that helps families in their darkest moments – when a loved on is nearing the end of their life. Soulumination has grown to a network of over 40 professional photographers who volunteer their time and talent to capture the final moments of these amazing people’s lives. While these photos bring forth tragedy, grief and loss, they also exude unconditional love that will outlast physical boundaries.

According to their website:
“Soulumination celebrates the lives of children and parents facing life-threatening conditions by providing professional photographs of these special individuals and their families, free of charge.

The life-affirming photographs of Soulumination are an enduring, positive record of the child’s life, and provide a loving legacy for the children of parents lost to terminal illness.”
