Volunteer as a


How it works.

Heart Gallery recruits and supports some of the finest photographers in Texas to ensure that every child in foster care who is waiting for an adoptive family gets a professional photo shoot experience to help tell their story and increase their chances of adoption.

Our volunteer photographers share high-quality images from photo shoots with family and professionals in the child’s life to assist them in recruiting adoptive families for the child.

We are always looking for new photographers to help us connect children with families!

Please tell us any times that you are NOT available to volunteer your photography skills.
Do you have a preference for in-studio or out of studio sessions? If your preference is for in-studio sessions, please note where your studio is located.
Please be as specific as possible regarding the maximum distance you’re willing to travel from your location to a photo shoot. For example, you might say that you’re willing to go as far South as Nacogdoches, as far west as Terrell, as far north as Mineola, and as far east as Marshall. This helps us assign you children that fall within your preferences. Many of the children live outside of the immediate Tyler area. Please reference the Region 4 Map.
