Item Description

Cheryl Bigman is a professional photographer who lives in the San Francisco Bay area, specializing in custom portrait art of children and families, High School seniors, and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs.  She brings to her work everything that makes a photograph memorable - both the highest technical proficiency, an artist's sensibility, and an open heart.

In her own words, she describes what she most loves about her work as  "....capturing real moments between real people.  Natural, organic, unposed moments.  Moments where I feel moved inside."

Cheryl is well known to the Chelsea's Hope Families because she has traveled all over the United States (at her own expense) photographing many of the Lafora children.  Her work has been invaluable to the Chelsea's Hope mission of heightening awareness of Lafora Disease.  By the way, the first picture above is Cheryl's portrait of Chelsea.  The second is Kristen.

Please go to Cheryl's website to let her work speak for itself.  Be sure to click on "Portraits" and then on "Chelsea's Hope Project" in the drop down menu - (it's a little hard to see) - and watch the slideshow she has created from many of the Lafora Portraits.

If you have questions or would like to explore this opportunity with Cheryl, please call her at (925) 963-8744 or email her at
