I have a Clinton Open House event on the 25th. It's going to be a little bit busy that day but it will be over around 12:30- 1pm. Would that be a good time for you? Even if you wanted to come during?

thank you! yes i did it 2x before with the new haven group. the leaders Lindsey did an amazing job. There are our forms you need to make all the photographers sign. They don't have the rights to use the pics. You need greeters ,runners, spanish speaking helpers,  etc.  You need printers. I can meet with you Oct 25 or 26.

Your photos are beautiful! We'd love to work with you! Last year for New Britain and Middletown combined we had 200 people. If your still interested in the event I'd love to meet with you. Aldon said that you've had experience in Help- Portrait before? This is my first time ever doing something like this so any help or thoughts that I'm able to pick of anyone who's done this before?

Hi Kristen,

Help-Portrait is an international event once a year and only one day. Children and parents can definitely use this day for a school photo, family portrait, a head shot for Linkedin for people who can't afford it.

Are these only held once a year? What about school photos for those whom can't afford? That would be a nice idea also, or a family session x2 year?
