Help for Talon's Family
Talon and his wife, Nicole, were so excited to learn they were finally expecting a healthy baby girl! After years of trying, their miracle rainbow IVF baby was finally on her way to complete their family. But in the home-stretch of pregnancy, their lives took a dramatic turn.
On April 26, 2021, Talon was in a terrible motorcycle accident after a driver failed to yield and turned left in front of him on the highway.
Talon sustained multiple physical injuries, and subsequently had to have multiple surgeries. Due to the physical injuries, he also suffered at least 5 strokes, causing brain damage (the extent of which has not yet been determined).
As one can imagine, the family is extremely financially strained. Talon provided much of the family's support. Nicole is still working, while also juggling doctors appointments, holding it together for her other two children, the end of pregnancy, and emotional grief.
Birth Photography and Doula Fund
Nicole hired me early in her pregnancy to support her and Talon during labor, as well as document the birth of their first child together.
When Nicole hired me, she had no idea just how important the physical & emotional support for this birth would be. She knew she wanted the photos to remember this big day. Now that Talon will not be able to be with her, and will miss experiencing the birth of his first baby, the photos are even more valuable. Talon won't be there, but my hope is that with my help, he will be able to experience it through the photos.
My goal is to take this financial burden completely off their plate and gift them the remaining balance due on the photography package. I would also like to raise additional funds to help cover living expenses, and the expenses that come along with a new baby, during this incredibly difficult time for her family.
Can you help?
I have set up a fund for friends, family and generous strangers to donate not only to Nicole and Talon's birth photography package, but also additional funds to help ease the financial burden they're going through right now.
The first $750 of donations will gift them the remainder of their birth photography and doula support.
I have set a goal to raise an additional $2,000 beyond that. The FULL amount of any money raised in addition to the birth photography and doula package will go directly to the family - no percentage or fees will be taken out (unlike some other fundraising sites)

Just type in the amount you'd like to donate and hit "pay now".
The family also has a GoFundMe page established if you prefer to donate through that.
ANYTHING helps, so thank you so much for your generosity!!
