"For new members who just joined the group. Some of us met a few weeks ago with the folks from Children's Hospital, UNMC, and BeautyFirst, who are all on board for Dec. 12. The hospital are two projects that are already well underway. Christine…"
"With our Help-Portrait events being only a little more than a month away, I think that we should schedule a meeting of photographers who are planning to participate. We will need everyone to commit to the schedule and discuss some details about the…"
"Just talked to Sue again. Christine, you are on so please coordinate with her. And Jeff, I gave Sue your number as a backup. So glad our group is working together to make things happen. They are very appreciative!"
"Got a call from Children's today. They are so excited that we are working with them and the "Hand in Hand" program. They have a family right now with a 14 month old that is not doing very well. The child is scheduled for surgery on…"
"What we need to do at this point is get everyone committed to a specific project and time frame. We will be joining others who are participating in Help-Portrait across the world on December 12. We are trying to coordinate three projects in…"
"The meeting was very productive. We had people representing Children's Hospital, UNMC, and Beauty First in attendance, as well as a couple photographers. We will be organizing the smaller groups for specific projects now and getting a game plan…"
"Hey, everybody! I know we never got the chance to meet and get a plan together for today's meeting, but maybe we could plan to get there early (say at 12:30) and talk a bit before everyone else arrives. Let me know if you can make it early."
"Hopefully this is better late than never, but I created a flyer about our Omaha Help-Portrait so that I could get the word out at a photography club meeting I am attending tonight. Please check it out and send it out to as many people as possible…"

"Jaime, Glad to have you back. I think we are looking for a larger space that we can use on the morning of Saturday, Oct. 17. I have ITT for the afternoon, but there was concern that some photographers may be working at that time. I also have a few…"
I was planning on participating, but if you have enough photographers, not really sure what you'd want me to do. Also, don't know what time things get started and what to bring as far as gear. I think I'm missing something from an organizational position as I have really felt out of the loop. Unfortunately, I have not been able to make any of the meetings. It would be nice if someone could post minutes or keep us up to date as to the what, where, and whens of this event.
Received your message and I plan to be there about 8AM so there is plenty of time to get things hauled in and set up. I will have 2 grandsons there, like last year, and one is a photographer. A family every half hour sounds fantastic! I think I also have an exercise bench in the basement I can use for posing, in addition to a posing stool I will bring. One question though - what kind of records do you want us to keep for the sessions? With that many sittings we should have some very specific detail to record each family or individual.
