Workplace Healing recommends a Legacy Session for any employee - or loved one of an employee - facing a terminal diagnosis.
Any diagnosis can be disempowering and tiresome. How rapidly or gradually things will progress is unknown, and the information, advice, medications, procedures, and treatments are daunting.
A Legacy Session is an opportunity to pause ...a moment of peace amidst the chaos of this new normal.
During a Legacy Session, Allison Bush, founder of The Trixi Lou Project, will work with your employee and their loved ones to create an authentic experience - no need for matching outfits or the perfect location.
Legacy Sessions can be scheduled anytime after diagnosis but please keep in mind the unpredictability of this process and consider changes in appearance, ability, and stamina.
Following the session, your employee will receive all the best images, fully edited, and a password to download the entire high-resolution, private gallery. Galleries may be shared with friends and family, and prints are available for an additional cost.
A month after my husband Adam was diagnosed with cancer, Allison reached out to me and asked if we wanted family pictures taken. At first it felt wrong somehow as we usually only took photos during happier times, not during moments of sadness and uncertainty. We agreed but I let the children pick out whatever they wanted to wear. Gone were the days of coordinated outfits and forced poses, I wanted a stress free experience. I’m so grateful we have these photos, looking back I can see the family dynamic that was ours alone. I see the strength and love that would hold us together on the long, sad road ahead. I can still feel Adam’s arms wrapped around me, my head against his chest hearing his strong heartbeat that would fade less than a year later. It was my safe place and my home. The horrible diagnosis was gone, if only for a moment. A moment forever captured in a photograph.
