The Maple Leaf Mission

I feel honored to have been accepted into The Maple Leaf Mission.  Here is some information about it:

We want to give you  The Gift Of Life In Pictures ”. We want to help you capture those precious moments and make beautiful memories.
The Maple Leaf Mission offers 3 types of free photography sessions, our sole purpose is to make those moments with a loved one be it a final moment session, a your moment session or a deployment overseas/homecoming reunion some of the best moments that you can look back on for years to come/


For a “Terminal Prognosis or a Devastating 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 honoured 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.

These sessions are our newest sessions that are for the families/individuals that have any debilitating or life altering illness's a genetic condition or disability but are living your everyday life to the fullest despite your diagnosis. Examples are you have Epilepsy Seizures, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Paralysis, Stroke, Blepharophimosis, you are in remission from cancer (best reason to celebrate) you had open heart surgery, you had 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.

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.
If you are part of any branch of the Canadian 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.
