HELP-PORTRAIT :: Helping People Have A MERRY CHRISTMAS : Franklin TN Photographer

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!

I thought today would be the perfect day to share my experience with Help-Portrait.  I had the amazing opportunity to participate this year… If you don’t know about Help-Portrait the idea is beautifully simple & wonderful.

FIND SOMEONE IN NEED.  TAKE THEIR PORTRAIT.  PRINT THEIR PORTRAIT.   DELIVER THEIR PORTRAIT

The Franklin HELP-PORTRAIT event took event took place on Dec 10th @ Christ Community Church.  We had 14 photographers volunteer their time, 4 Make-Up/Hair Stylist and photographed over 50 families!!!

When I arrived on the scene I walked up to Evin from Evin Photography, who was setting up her gear, I asked her if we could work together and she said Yes.  HELP-PORTRAIT was such a beautiful thing to be a part of.  Some people were there getting portraits for the first time ever… others had a tragedy like their house burning down.  Some who had their portrait taken worked for Non-Profits, or were recovering from brain cancer.

Here is the video from our event:

After getting their portraits taken we asked people if they wanted to share their story or talk about what Help-Portrait meant to them.  So we printed off an additional photo & asked them to write with a sharpie— you can see some of their responses at the end.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!
