What is an inspire session?

A Capes and Crowns Inspire Session is so much more than a photo shoot, it’s a life-changing experience. Children and their families dress up in costumes based on the qualifying child’s greatest Inspiration in life. Whether a hero, a princess, or something created all their own, the only limit is a child’s imagination. 

wHY support our cause?

Inspire sessions go beyond what can be seen. They’re the first time that a child sees themselves brave, and strong after months of chemo. Or a moment of escape after their realities are torn due to a traumatic situation. And for some , a child’s Inspire session is a chance for families to say “goodbye”. Capes and Crowns provides these sessions at absolutely no cost to qualifying families. With the help of our supporters, we can continue to help these brave warriors and their families fight these large battles. 

What Drives Us

Our Mission

The Capes and Crowns Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides one-of-a-kind photography experiences at no-cost to children and their families  battling cancer, serious illness, victims of trauma and abuse, and those living with special needs. Our hope is to empower, encourage, and bring joy to these real life heroes fighting big battles.

National Tour Stops


As always, the health and safety of the children and families whom we have the honor to photograph is our number one priority. Due to COVID-19, all in-person sessions, camps, and events have been cancelled until further notice. We miss you all so much and hope that we’ll be able to find a safe way to provide inspire sessions again soon! 

As our counties are still partially closed, the printing and delivery of posters will be postponed until our countries enter phase 2/3.  Our volunteers will be working as best as they can to continue production as they juggle working from home with their kiddos.  We are so thankful for your continued patience! 

We are so grateful for the continued financial support from our partners and donors!
