Lynette Johnson founded Soulumination, a non-profit organization that celebrates the lives of children and parents facing life-threatening conditions by providing professional photographs of these special individuals and their families.

Bio

Since picking up a camera at the age of 30, Lynette has been an in-demand family and wedding photographer. Inspired after both a close friend and a family member lost their babies, Lynette began quietly offering her photography skills to families in Seattle Children’s Hospital Palliative Care Unit. When People Magazine documented her story in 2005, calls began coming in from around the world and Soulumination was founded. Ten years later, Soulumination still celebrates the lives of children and parents facing life-threatening conditions by providing professional photographs of these special individuals and their families, free of charge. The life-affirming photographs of Soulumination are an enduring, positive record of the child's life, and provide a loving legacy for the children of parents lost to terminal illness. Today, nearly 50 professional photographers volunteer their time and talent to Soulumination and over 1,400 photography sessions have been provided to families in need.
