Special Needs Adoption and Permanency Services

OUR MISSION: To support children in foster care who have special needs, to decrease the time they wait for permanent families, and to expand the geographical boundaries in which the best adoptive families may be found.


The Idaho Wednesday's Child program and the Heart Gallery of Idaho are greatly blessed with the services of our volunteer photographers. These professionals donate their time and services to take portraits of all our kids.

Alessi Photography

Hi! I am an adoptive mother and artist. I have always been a photographer but started my business in 2006 shortly after moving to the area. I love spending time with my clients and showing their lives through my lens. I have relaxed, on-location sessions where we dance, play and enjoy the process of making the models into art. I cherish my dream job and that I get to see clients and put smiles on their faces everyday while enjoying each moment with my little one.

Barb Bergeson Studio Gallery

Barb Bergeson brings to every shoot the one quality every good photographer must have: She understands people. She knows when to be serious and when to play, when to follow the rules and when to throw the rules out the window. Barb started out in life as a child photographer, learning from her photographer dad while spilling various chemicals in the darkroom. She still misses the smell of chemicals in the morning. She has been a grown-up photographer for 18 years, applying her many years of custom darkroom printing and experience to the digital world.

Jennifer Holmes Photography

Hi! My name is Jennifer Holmes and I have been serving the Lewiston/Clarkston Valley for the last three years. My love of photography started at a very young age with my first camera given to me at the age of six...some of you may remember the Kodak instamatic camera - cutting edge for it's time in the late 70's. My passion grew over the years and soon friends and family began to call upon my eye for beauty in photography. I am a proudly self taught artist and my goal will always be to offer professional photography with my own unique perspective at a friends and family rate.
