Help-Portrait 2013

It’s getting to the time of the year where our wedding season slows down (due to our lovely BC weather) and where we all start thinking about Christmas! 

I’m thankful for the down time we have... the chance to spend more time with family and friends and to be able to get together with other photographers.  Another part is the opportunity to help out at different events like Help-Portrait.  

You may recall me talking about Help-Portrait in the past on the blog (2010, 2011).  Last year I missed out because we were out of the country, so I was super excited that it worked out this time around! :)  I will be helping out at the Abbotsford Help-Portrait this year on December 7, 2013.

What is Help-Portrait?

Help-Portrait is a global movement of photographers, hairstylists, make-up artists and volunteers using their time, tools and expertise to give back to those in need.   Basically... we find people in need, and take, print and deliver their picture!  

So far over 282,000 portraits have been given out since Help-Portrait started up in 2009!

If you live in the Lower Mainland, BC and are interested in volunteering or donating to the Abbotsford Help-Portrait event (Dec 7), we would LOVE to have more volunteers helping and any donations to help make our day a success!  So far we have around 35 volunteers signed up...and would love to double that amount if possible! :)

You can check out the Abbotsford Help-Portrait's blog for volunteer registration and information here!  There's also a facebook group that you can join here! Or feel free to send me an email or message me on facebook toget involved.   It would be fantastic to have more photographers, hair stylists and makeup artists get involved... the more the merrier!
