Today’s generation will grow up with every season of life captured in photographs. From daily moments caught on camera phones to annual school pictures, memories now live forever for the average kid next door. But this is not the case for thousands of foster children in our country. They move from foster home to foster home, school to school, never capturing special childhood milestones in photographs but Angels’ Arms supporter Casey Trueman is hoping to change that, one photo at a time.
Casey first began her photography career when she received a professional camera as a Christmas gift. What started as a hobby turned into something she could see herself doing long term. She went from casually taking pictures of her children to setting up photo sessions with her friends and family. After seeing an Angels’ Arms facebook post seeking a volunteer photographer, Casey immediately responded with the intent to help. “I looked up Angels’ Arms online and fell in love with the mission. Anyone who welcomes a child into their home with unconditional love is a hero in my eyes.” said Casey.
“As a mother, I know how quickly childhood passes and I try to freeze those moments for my kids,” Casey stated. “When I see my family pictures on the wall and think about families who don’t have that, I want to help.”
Casey has been a wonderful support system to Angels’ Arms over the years. She’s hosted numerous photo sessions for Angels’ Arms foster families. Many of the kids never had professional photographs taken before but thanks to Casey, they now have beautiful pictures that they will treasure forever.
