Help-Portrait is offering free family portraits at the Susi Q Center Dec. 7 including hair and make-up
For the holiday season, on Friday, Dec. 7, Help-Portrait will be at the Susi Q Community Center to treat guests to hair, make-up, food, and beverages and to take a memorable 8”x10” framed family portrait at no charge.
Help-Portrait is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing the community of photographers together to use their skills to give back to the community. In December, photographers around the world will be grabbing their cameras, finding people in need and taking their picture. When the prints are ready, the photographs will be delivered.
Local photographers and residents David and Kimberly Makela are coordinating the event. Help-Portrait is seeking volunteers to assist with hair, make-up, wardrobe, hospitality, photography, and technology – Photoshop.
