The Butterfly Wishes Network – Who is it? What do they do?


While i am predominately a Newborn & Baby Photographer in fife I also am one of the six kick ass … Admin team and volunteer Photographers for The Butterfly Wishes Network  which is a not-for-profit organisation made up of UK-based professional photographers who would like to offer their services free of charge to families of children with life-shortening conditions.

The Butterfly Wiishes Network was founded by a group of Photographers who came together to create a Nationwide Network of Professional Photographers. The goal was to create a national network of photographers providing families with children that suffer from a life threatening illness, a beautiful family session and at least 10 digital images.

They are completely non profit and every single person works for free.  What i love about working for the network is meeting / talking with families it is so humbling, I also adore seeing all the sessions coming through and feeling so proud of the entire network and the Admin team who work tirelessly behind the scenes.  When a family emails through after a session the joy is amazing because it makes it so worthwhile knowing that for a few hours of your life you have helped a family create beautiful lasting memories.  It truly do adore my job’s and by far volunteering is one of my most fulfilling roles.

A session could be at your own studio or in the family home, even a local park and from the families i have worked with so far its been really rewarding, I remember my first session well the mum opened the door and gave me a massive hug she was so grateful and a few years on i still follow the families journey <3

If you feel like you are a professional photographer and would like to take part we would LOVE to hear from you <3 please drop us a little message via the website
