Today’s Helping Hero is the dynamic duo of Kristin Seward and Patience Salgado!

You’ve seen their names before. Kristin and Patience produced the powerful photo series Heart of the Family. They profiled the parents of Emory, Everett, and Cooper during September Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. This time, they volunteered their talents and took holiday portraits of our hero families. Dozens of families signed up and showed up at Bryan Park. Bryan Park was decked out in a beautiful array of brilliant fall colors. Some families brought their beloved four-legged family members to pose with the family. Jonathan’s mom couldn’t leave out his beloved pet: his giant rabbit named Coco! Everyone met Connor’s Heroes new buddy: Erin’s puppy, Dolly Rose.

Thank you Kristin and Patience for giving our hero families a special moment together — and capturing them in beautiful portraits they will treasure.
