In 2 weeks, photographers from all over the country will come together on December 4 to help those in need by doing what we know best. . .offering a chance for families in need to come together and have a portriat taken. This amazing organization was started by celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart. (Check out his website if you get a chance – it will blow you away!!)
How Help-Portrait works is by designating locations in given cities around the country where people in need can have their family portrait taken, printed and given to them at no charge. It’s such a great chance to give back and I’m extremely excited to be helping out this year in Minneapolis.
There are two designated locations this year and I will be assisting behind the scenes with helping families choose the photographs they’d like. As most anyone who follows my blog or has worked with me knows, I LOVE meeting new people and look forward to meeting so many amazing families as well as other photographers!

Becuase this is a non-profit, the cost of paper and other supplies needed for the day is paid for through donations. A donations page has been set up for the Minneapolis location and I encourage anyone who appreciates this cause to donate.
Please click HERE to help. I thank you in advance!
The website says it best, “Help-Portrait is a movement of photographers, makeup artists and volunteers who come together to give, not take pictures of those who are less fortunate.”
Here’s a little video for all you visual learners out there 🙂 This is footage from 2009’s H-P. I get soooooooo excited just watching it!!
