The Book of Dreams is the Sacramento Bee’s holiday giving program. Each year the Bee profiles charitable organizations and deserving individuals that have a special dream. Members of the community can then donate money to fulfill those dreams. Autumn has photographed this series for the past six years bringing it into the digital age by adding video and other online components. She is the first photojournalist to approach the project from a purely documentary angle rather than through portraits as it was done before. More than one million dollars has been raised during her time with Book of Dreams providing such items as sleeping mats for a homeless shelter, baby formula for a crisis nursery center and much more. She is proud that two of her years leading the project raises the most money that it has ever received in it's 25 years of existence.
This is one of the defining projects of Autumn's career and is very dear to her heart.
