Yay!! This week I was able to deliver the help portrait photos to the co-ordinator at The Dam.
What is help portrait you ask?
“Help Portrait is a community of photographers coming together across the world to use their photography skills to give back to their local community. This is about GIVING the pictures, not taking them. These portraits are not for your portfolio, website, or for sale. Money isn’t involved here. This holiday season, you have the chance to give a family something they may have never had before—a portrait together.” Check it out at www.help-portrait.com
This year myself along with Jason DiMichele (photographer), Stephanie Moritmer (hair), Robin Blakely (hair) and the awesome staff at The Dam were able to provide a fun environment for the young mom program at The Dam. For those of you that are interested The Dam is a non-profit organization that gives hope and help to youth and young moms and is located in Mississuaga, ON (Meadowvale area). You can check them out at www.thedam.org. Jason is mainly a fine art photographer and awesome printer who can be found at www.jasondimichele.com.
We provided a CD with digital images and an 8×10 framed print for the moms. Can’t wait to do it all again next year.
