For The Love Foundation was set up by Daisy Tree’s owner, Jennifer Kamp, before Daisy Tree opened its doors in March of 2016. She wanted Daisy Tree to start on the right foot, giving to others first! Jennifer has photographed professionally for 15 years, including charity work for Mascot Miracles Foundation, Children and The Earth, and many small fundraisers in Utah that benefit children fighting cancer and their families. She knew that this is where her heart is connected, so as she thought about a charity to start with Daisy Tree, she thought about all her little friends! You can’t meet a little child fighting cancer, and not come away with a more pure understanding of what matters most in life. With the many families and their beautiful children in mind, For The Love Foundation was started!
A little about For The Love Foundation, and how it received it’s name:
One day a little family came into the studio that I was managing. I was training a new photographer at the time, and we did a photo shoot on a tiny new baby girl together. With many clients coming through the door, we didn’t think much about the little family after saying goodbye to them when our shoot was over. But a few months later, as I was looking on my personal Facebook feed, I saw the images that I had taken of the little baby from few months earlier. Along with this image, their was a plea from their friend to support the family at a Chick-fil-A dinner night where a % of every meal would go to the family! My heart sank as I thought of their adorable family and all that they had been through the past few months! I packed up my daughters and decided to do what we could, and go to their fundraiser that night. At the fundraiser, I talked with the baby’s Mom, Cheryl, and told her if their was any need for a photographer, to contact me. I can not remember if I contacted her through Facebook or she contacted me, but we soon became fast friends online. Soon, our families became close friends, and their daughters stole a little piece of my heart. I have been so blessed to have them in my life!
As I have become closer to this sweet family, I have come to understand a little more about this community of cancer fighting families. We have become attached to their fight! We want to help raise awareness for research of childhood cancer!
THEY ARE WORTH MORE THEN 4% OF CANCER FUNDING!
We wanted to share our talents with them, by giving to the families in need. We wanted to create a place where they know they can come to capture memories of their families, free of charge, to love for generations to come. It is only a small way to give back, but it is so dear to our hearts! We always leave a For The Love photo session, with one of our little heroes, with a heart full of love and a soul ready to give back wherever we can. They have a way of making you feel special and loved, when it was your intent to make them feel special and loved!
They are my heroes!
They have touched a place in my heart, that only they could reach, and I will forever be thankful for all the opportunities I have had to serve them in the past and future. As I have trained, failed, worked, learned and finally succeeded at opening my own dream, Daisy Tree Photography, it could only open attached to a value of service! Anyone who has been trained by me (you know who you are 100+ and counting!) will know the phrase: “For The Love!” This is something I say while training when it is something EXTREMELY IMPORTANT for them to remember! Something I wanted them to never forget! “For the love…(always do this or that…)!”
Well…this one is for everyone!
FOR THE LOVE, DONATE TO CHILDHOOD CANCER RESEARCH!
FOR THE LOVE, CHILDHOOD CANCER IS WORTH MORE THEN 4% OF CANCER RESEARCH MONEY!

And this was the beginning of Daisy Tree Photography’s foundation, For The Love Foundation!
