Origin Story

"After losing my daughter, Skylar, to a terminal condition, grief and depression hit me hard."

Surprisingly, I found that the pictures of our family helped me heal more than anything. They created a safe space for me to grieve and the freedom to be whatever I needed to be in that moment. The tangible prints provided comfort: a way to carry on a relationship with my daughter. They allowed me to hold Skylar when she wasn't here to hold.

I wanted to give that gift to others and started donating portrait sessions to families facing a terminal diagnosis. With every session, I could feel something greater taking shape… a way to capture love not lost.

Because of our generous donors, we can continue to provide these priceless photographs and help people heal in grief.

What your gift means to a family facing loss.

"When your family is in the middle of  fighting cancer, you live truncated lives, waiting until the next scan to determine how the future might play out. Ashley and Momento was offering the power to freeze the moments for us, to forever capture Gregg’s love for each of the kids and for me…What is most essential about Momento is the legacy the photos leave for my four children."
