Through Zipperstrong, Winchester Photographer SheRae Hunter helps raise awareness of congenital heart disease by giving outsiders a glimpse into the CHD world. Her powerful images capture the strength and vitality of children fighting congenital heart disease, while helping families see just how proud their children are to simply be themselves, scars and all.


The Zipperstrong Project has been featured in local Virginia news outlets, on The Mighty, and at the Hope Marietta Foundation’s Casino Night, which raises awareness about congenital heart disease and supports CHD causes in Virginia.


We invite all CHD families across Virginia (and nearby regions) to join us for this complimentary Zipperstrong portrait session with photographer SheRae Hunter. The session is designed to feature CHD children ages infant to 15-years-old, including CHD survivors and those carried in the hearts of their loved ones.


Participating families will receive admission to the museum during the event. All Zipperstrong families, past and present, are invited to attend a Zipperstrong Luncheon hosted by the Pediatric Congenital Heart Association of Virginia. 

Photo sessions are first-come-first-served, and preference will be given to new Zipperstrong families. Please register here to attend the morning session, afternoon session, or the Zipperstrong luncheon.
