The Gift of Christmas Artworks to Sick Children

Christmas Wish Project Artwork by Jesus Ramirez

Yearly, Photoshop Training Channel, together with other Photoshop masters, has collaborated with Christmas Wish Project to create magical portraits for sick children. 

Karen Alsop, founder of the Christmas Wish Project, and other photographers teamed up with Santa to visit them in hospitals and take some portraits.

These portraits are sent to different skilled Photoshop masters around the globe to turn their photos into Christmas Wonderland artworks to be printed and gifted to these families. 

This project aims to bring a little Christmas joy to families that are doing it tough due to childhood health challenges. For some of these families, this was their first professional photo of their child. For others, this may be their last as we cater to some gravely ill young people.

Christmas of 2022, I worked with Grace, who suffers from an autoimmune disease.
After going through a significant health challenge in 2021, I felt more connected with the project.

This is Grace with her mom, Nicole, meeting Santa in the studio.
Grace shares what kind of puppy she likes for Christmas.

In 2021, the team could not photograph Grace in person as she was too sick.
But this year, she could meet Santa, which was truly magical!
