Why we do it:
Many years ago we went to the homes of five underprivileged families, set up our equipment, took family portraits for them and gave them the portraits. Many of them had family photos when their children were babies, but none of them had recent family portraits. They told us that it was because they could not afford them. At that point we decided that we wanted to provide access to affordable family portraits to all families.
We decided that the best way to reach families was to go where they were: churches, schools, daycare centers, PTA's. Then we decided that those organizations that serve these families should get something, too. So our Family Portrait Fundraising program was born.
How we do it:
We go to a hosting location and set up a backdrop and lights. We pose the families and take their photographs. The family then chooses the photographs that they would like to purchase, at very affordable prices. We print the photographs on location and the family purchases them and takes the photographs home with them.
The families receive a product that, for them, will never lose it's value. The hosting organization receives 50% of the proceeds from each photography session.
If your organization would like to host a fundraising session, contact us and we would be happy to sit down with you and go over the details.
