Portraits that Heal gives voice to children that suffer from illness and other challenges and the non-profits that serve them by creating documentary portrait videos that empower children to share their stories in their own words.

"Portraits that Heal celebrates healing, family and strength by creating videos that give kids a place to tell their stories and share their experiences, fears, gratitude and triumph in their own words, in their own way."   - Susannah Ludwig, Founder and Filmmaker, Portraits that Heal

Honoring Kids and Families through Professional Custom Videos

There are two ways to contribute to the creation of a Portraits that Heal custom video.  You can purchase a Portraits that Heal video for a friend or neighbor in need, or you can contribute to the Portraits that Heal Fund.

The Portraits that Heal Fund is a fund that helps to offset the costs of custom Portraits that Heal videos for the families of children in need.  We welcome contributions made in honor of friends and family.  And we greatly appreciate your generosity.

Contact us to gift a Portraits that Heal video to a family whose child is going through a serious illness or to an organization that works directly with children to provide recovery, relief or support.

"Working with your team was so easy!   You were able to give our story a true voice and share the innocence and bravery of our daughter Edie with everyone. Emily and I will forever cherish this video."  - Nick, Edie's Dad

Meet Edie

"You were able to capture Kaela being herself, doing the things she loves, like Taekwondo, swimming, playing piano...

I love the fact that all the questions you asked were unscripted. I got so emotional just listening to her story." - The Cruz Family
