The Children's Hope Network specializes in creating photography programs for hospitals nationwide that are catered to what each hospital's needs are. With successful programs in 15+ hospitals, we pride ourselves in developing innovative ideas that have never been done in children's hospitals before. As a nonprofit organization, we keep costs low, as we know that many children's hospitals depend on grants and community support to sustain their programming.
Capturing Hopes Photography - NICU Hope Photography
Started in 2013, this program depends on local professional photographer to provide sessions for your NICU families during their hospital stay. Families can receive a free photo session every two weeks while in the hospital. Our photographers also provide special holiday events, planned with the hospital, to provide parents with beautiful holiday photos of their babies.
The cost to open a Capturing Hopes Program in a hospital is $2500, this includes training and your first year of materials. Additional brochures can be purchased yearly or as needed. Website support, session scheduling, and gallery storage are all included as long as your program exists.

Little Lights Program - Infant Bereavement Photography
This program was piloted at one hospital in North Carolina in 2016 and was a huge success from day one. Hospital staff is trained on both the program details and the professional camera equipment provided by us for this program. This is a hospital run program once training is completed, with full support from at least one local photographer for photography training and photo editing support. This program eliminates the need to bring in outside photographers at all hours of the day or night when few or none are available.
The cost to open a Little Lights Program in a hospital is $6500 and includes the camera equipment and training materials for your first year. You also receive website support and photo gallery storage as long as your program exist.
