HOPE – A Photoshoot Experience
Moana Photography invites 50 individuals to be photographed to support the Canadian Mental Health Association, Vancouver-Fraser Branch. You will be pampered with professional hair and makeup, and a personalized style and concept consultation in this luxurious magazine-style photoshoot experience. Fifty dollars from every Portrait session plus twenty dollars from all wall art purchases will be donated to CMHA-VF. The donations will support individuals to access resources to maintain and improve their mental health and help them in community integration, building resilience, and recovery from mental illness. When the campaign concludes, all participants will be invited to join in a fun gala to celebrate this great cause. Additionally, all participants’ stories and images will be featured in their Portrait Magazine. Your participation in this campaign will make an incredible difference.
Individuals who have been affected by mental health challenges themselves are welcome and invited to participate in this campaign.
“My purpose is to honor those who have gone through significant challenges and celebrate the effort they have put into overcoming their struggles. My aim is to offer an empowering photoshoot that will transform the way you see and feel about yourself. I have seen my friends, family and many people in the community affected by mental health struggles. It impacts all of us. I believe if we can all start sharing our journey about mental health challenges, we can create a more positive environment to openly talk about it. My dream is a culture in which people are able to seek and receive support without hesitation or discrimination. It’s my passion to bring more awareness, break the stigma, and normalize talking about mental health awareness. Through the Hope Campaign I want to create a safe environment to talk openly about mental health challenges and successes. Mental Health Matters!” – Moana
