Stillbirth & Infant Loss Photography
In August of 2018, my best friend and her husband lost their son at 37 weeks. Photographing and holding baby Zion in the hospital was one of the hardest things I've ever done- but the photos are so special to Molly & John. Although I hope that no other family has to endure the same loss, Lindsay Chan Photography is available on call for in-hospital photography free of charge for families in need via Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep.

Compass to Care
Compass to Care, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, ensures all families can access life-saving cancer treatment for their children. They carry out this mission by scheduling and paying for travel arrangements to the hospital where a child is being treated for cancer. Ultimately, they give children the best access to life-saving cancer treatment, regardless of their family’s financial situation. For more info on Compass to Care, please visit their website.
K9 Enrichment Initiative
K9 Enrichment Initiative is a local Chicagoland area rescue that partners with other rescues, trainers and volunteers to bring the focus back to amazing dogs in need, looking for a second chance on life. We partner with K9EI to photograph local pups looking for their forever homes as well as bring awareness to special causes and local events. Often times one striking photo can be the reason someone decides to stop and take a second look at a dog up for adoption. Lindsay Chan Photography is happy to be a part of such a great cause uniting dogs in need with new families!
