Tiny Sparrow Foundation | A Non Profit Organization » A Picture of Hope

Family FAQ

Our TSF families have shared that navigating the difficult journey of critical illness is filled with many emotions. Anxiety and fear of the unknown are forefront, but so is {HOPE}. At Tiny Sparrow Foundation,  we believe in {HOPE} and aim to provide your family with meaningful images and lasting memories.

Our professional photographers are the best of the best. They are chosen through a highly selective screening process. We work with only experienced, skilled, and passionate photographers who are mindful of your family’s individual needs. The photographer will arrive to your specified location, prepared to shoot under any circumstance (whether at a hospital or at your home).

The first step in The Tiny Sparrow | Picture of Hope process is to complete our Family Intake Form.

Once this form has been received and the required paperwork is completed, the Director of Family Relations will guide you through the TSF process and complete every detail needed to ensure a successful photography session.  If your family consents to sharing the images and story of your child, we will contact you to gain input for your child’s story.

After your Picture of Hope Photo Session has taken place and with your signed consent, we will post a few preview pictures on our Facebook page. If you elect not to have images from your photo session posted, we will respect that decision and comply with privacy preferences.

After a completed photo session, we will also create a beautiful slideshow of the photos and post them on our blog. Included with your session is also a printed 10×10 Tiny Sparrow Album of {Hope}. Your completed Picture of Hope package will be mailed to you containing your Album and a CD with electronic images including full copyrights signed over to your family. You have permission to share and print the pictures at your own discretion for friends and family to enjoy.

Q: My child is over the age of 18, is he or she eligible for a Picture of Hope.

A: Sadly, our non-profit guidelines require for us to operate under the legal definition of child.  Therefore, we are unable to accept intake forms for anyone over the age of 18.

Q: We have a family friend that is a photographer. Can we ask him/her to be our Picture of Hope photographer?

A: The Director of Family Relations will assign an approved photographer from our network that has been trained on the Picture of Hope process. However, we encourage you to direct them to our website to apply for an affiliate position.
