Today I found out Family Services, in Gaithersburg, MD, would love to have us to help their families with a beautiful portrait. Family Services is over a century old. They have about 90 families, and they mainly serve children 0 - 5 yrs old. I personally would be thrilled to be able to give back to these children.


So, as this venue was confirmed today, I am looking for anybody and everybody to help out to make this day so special for these kids, that they will remember it for the rest of their lives!

Please help, if you can.

All, Good luck to all of you who will be participating in this year's HELP Portrait event. I have been unable to organize this event for this year.

Yeah! I have prints secured!

Now, anybody know any make-up artists and hairdressers, who would like to help out on the 10th?

Hi Andre, yes, I would love you to join the gang!

I met with Family Services today, and 60 families signed up. These are mostly families with 1 child, as Family Services mostly works with first time parents.

Time will be from 10 am - 2 pm. We can start setting up at 8:30 am.

They have a wonderful big room (no windows); a conference room for the kids to do some arts and craft while they are waiting, and a waiting room for the parents.

Lindsay & Andre - please email me your email address - vanbergenp @

Lindsay, and all others,

Please post message in the Northern VA/Washington DC group; you will see the same post as here. There is a bit more activity in that section, so it's easier to keep track of things.

Is this opportunity still open? I'm a photographer. I won't be using equipment besides my camera. I have an "organizer assistant" with me. He's in management, so whatever you need to be "managed" he will be able to serve your needs. Please contact asap so I can plan to be there! Thank you so much!
