It was incredibly rewarding to once again participate in Help Portrait Dayton. It was something I missed after moving away in 2011. I am very thankful for the opportunity to jump back into this great event of donating professional portrait photography to those who normally wouldn’t be able to afford it. In December 2010 Help Portrait Dayton provided a full day of portrait photography and prints to families of military personnel based at Wright Patterson AFB. This year the event was held at the Church on Third Street in East Dayton. It’s a blast to come together with other pro photographers and volunteers and to brighten the faces and holiday of many families in our community. Thank you Kelly Maroney @ http://kellymaroney.wordpress.com/ for the great behind-the-scenes shots and blog article.
There’s something very special that’s going to be happening in Dayton, this Saturday, December 4, 2010. Help-Portrait is an event that’s not about the photographers. It’s about providing and donating portrait photography to families who normally wouldn’t be able to afford or have access to portrait studio services. Help-Portrait is a phenomenal, national movement and I’m happy for the opportunity to participate and help here locally in Dayton. Here’s the 411 –
WHO: We are photographing the local families of the U.S. Armed Forces deployed or deploying.
WHAT: Each family with have a portrait taken, edited, printed and given to them on site. Packet will include 1-5×7, 4-wallets and a digital file if desired. (no pets, please)
