Hi Tom. Two great questions. I'll answer the second first. I don't know exactly. We never know till the day of the event. But what from what I'm hearing from our outreach team I think we'll have a decent turnout. Last year we had three photographers total. So come along if you feel inclined to do so. You'll meet some amazing people.

how are you fixed for Photographers for tomorrow? Do you have enough & how many families are you expecting?

Gregg - I'm sure you're talents will be appreciated. Hope to meet you next year. It's all good.

Laura, you are more than welcome to join us. Don't worry about the equipment. Hope to see you tomorrow.

Unfortunately, it looks like my Wife and I will not be able to make the Allentown HP event.  We agreed to help out a charity animal shelter event down here in Berks and they were in a bind for last minute photography help for their fund raising event.  We look forward to future HP events though.  Wish you all a great event.

Hi Folks,

Well, 12/8 will be here before you know it, and we're all very excited. I know you are all busy, so I'll be brief.

2. Photographers arrival: 9:30-10
3. Public time: 11-3
4. If you do have extra equipment, feel free to bring it.

5. Metro Beauty Academy is helping again this year. We will have 15 students (possibly more), to do hair and makeup.

6. The fellowship hall we'll be shooting in is large, and has enough space to set up 6 - 8 studios.

7. There will be light snacks for everyone.

8. We will have background shooters, so you can concentrate on the portraits.

Order of Activities

1. Volunteers Arrive

2. Families Arrive

3. They are checked in

4. Go to Metro for makeup/hair

5. Escorted to the studio, and introduced to their photographer.

6. No need to process the images on site. Part of the check in process is gathering information for each family, what facility, address, etc.

7. Then, when all the images are collected, we send them to WHCC for processing. This cost is usually split amongst the photographers, and never amounts to more than a few dollars each. However, if you're a bit constrained financially, it is NOT a problem. We're more interested in your heart, than your wallet.

We are going to change people's lives. You can count on it?

Myself and my Wife, both photographers, will be there although she will probably be in an assisting and/or post processing role.   We can provide gear for two complete portrait setups (strobes for main, fill and hair light) as well as reflectors and backdrops and/or seamless.  Just let us know how we can help.

Thank you all. What a grand turnout. I'll be posting more details within the next few days.
