Help-Portrait: Abbotsford 2011

I'm super excited... Help-Portrait is THIS SATURDAY! Ony 2 days away!  Last year was the first time I participated in the event (see photos from last year here!) and I've already blogged a bit on what Help-Portrait is all about this year so I won't go into too much detail.   I highly recommend that you check out Help-Portrait's website for some great videos and updates though!


Help-Portrait will take place in over 50 countries on Dec 10, 2011.  In Abbotsofrd, a team of photographers, makeup artists, hair stylists, photo editors and volunteers will help style, shoot, edit and print free portraits for those in need, who wouldn't normally be able to afford photos.

This year is the second time around for Help-Portrait Abbotsford and I'm looking forward to working with some familiar faces again and of course meeting new volunteers who have come on board as well!   We're expecting around 600 people to come through on Saturday... which is double from last year!  Thanks to Bakerview Church for letting us hold Help-Portrait Abbotsford at your location this time around!
