Mission Statement

Retake is a nonprofit that offers free portraits to people who have lost their homes and belongings due to disasters or to people who come from conflict areas and are now refugees, immigrants, migrants, displaced people, or asylum seekers. We provide new keepsakes as they rebuild their lives through our trauma-healing photoshoots.


Retake was founded in early 2020 after our director saw the importance of photography and preserving heritage through years of nonprofit and freelance work around the world. We are a small organization, but have a lot of supporters and advocates for the work we are doing. There are two areas we focus on: disaster survivors and conflict survivors. With the increase of fires, hurricanes, droughts, and severe weather, there are more people than ever who have lost all of their belongings and mementos. In addition to climate crises forcing people to flee their homes, conflicts and war are also increasing the number of people migrating or seeking a new life somewhere else. Being forced to leave so much behind, we want to create new family photos and portraits that can be hung on the walls of their new homes.
