What We Do
So what exactly do we do at Retake?
We connect with people who have not only lost their homes or belongings,
but also their most precious memories, keepsakes, and family heirlooms because
of the horrible situations they have endured. We offer them new photos
that they can cherish as they rebuild their lives.
We meet with the survivors to hear their stories, learn about their journeys,
and then create new beautiful portraits through fun and easy photoshoots.
After, we give them both framed and digital copies of their keepsakes.
Sharing Your Story
The first step is connecting with those who we will photograph. We partner with people and organizations who know those communities and are a trusted source. They help connect us, so we have the opportunity to learn about our photoshoot recipients' backgrounds and stories.
Our photoshoots will never be the same thing twice. Sometimes we hold large photoshoot events at parks, apartment complexes, or partner organization's offices. Whatever it is, we will work around everyone's schedules to have a quick and easy shoot for all involved.
Final Product Delivery
After the photoshoot, we sort through the images to find the best ones. We beautifully edit them. We have a set amount of photos we will frame, and the remainder of the edited images will be shared with you digitally. Then comes one of the best parts: delivering the final product.
