This past Saturday was Help-Portrait and it was our seventh year working with the program alongside First Exposures and the Bayview Opera House. It’s always great to give back during the holidays and while we’re slammed with holiday parties, we always make time for Help-Portrait and this year was pretty incredible!
The First Exposures mentees photographed 585 people, and there were a total of 119 volunteers helping to make it happen. Below are some photos from the day which went by so fast it was all a blur.
Our Giving Back program can be tough to integrate into the holiday season but so many smiles were made that it’s worth it. We can’t share any of the actual portraits directly here but you can see a lot of the great energy on hand even if there were a few tantrums and crying babies 🙂

Mentees had as much fun making portraits as the families.
