As you know, Woolf Photography has been taking Wellington's visual Biography for over 80 years. It stands to reason, then, that we have many incredible connections throughout the community, for which we are so grateful.
One such connection is Te Omanga Hospice, which provides palliative care to those living with a life limiting condition in the Hutt Valley.This is an organisation that touches the lives of so many people at a vulnerable time: they need to know that the mental and physical needs of their loved ones will be met with kindness, dignity, comfort and love. Palliative care is provided through an interdisciplinary team of specialist doctors, nurses, therapists and specially trained volunteers and is free of charge to the community.
So when Woolf Photography was asked to work with Leanne McLean, Te Omanga’s Fundraising & Marketing Director, and their web designer, Scratch to supply the imagery for the hospice's new website, Jess Dewsnap jumped at the chance!
Scratch supplied the Studio Brief: The images were to be soft, calming, intimate and uplifting. Jess captured the homely colours and textures of Te Omanga Hospice with images of quilts, homely decorations, knitted blankets and warm timber tones. The grounds and the hospice itself were portrayed in a way that absolutely reflects the caring and joyful nature of the place.
Feedback from this photo-shoot has been amazing: everyone enjoyed meeting Jess, working with her and telling their stories. She really captured the nurturing mood of the place, and staff have said what a wonderful experience it was to have Jess capture the essence of the organisation.
Thanks to all the staff at Te Omanga Hospice for their generosity and for everything they give of themselves on a daily basis to make a difference to the Hutt Valley community. If you would like to make a difference too, feel free to donate to this worthy cause.
Wishing you a Merry and Safe Christmas 2015
