It started off as a cold, dreary, wet day for our annual Help Portrait event. We have a tradition every year with our Monroe LA Photo Group of getting together in the community for Help Portrait day. Help Portrait is a worldwide event that occurs every December where professional photographers get together, donate their time, and photograph those who would not be able to afford a portrait of themselves or their family. Many times, hair stylists and make-up artists also donate their time to make the portrait experience that much more fun & special.
This year was our second year getting together to photograph some of our local senior citizens and their families here in Monroe. We had hoped that the cold rain would not keep people away and it definitely didn’t. Even though we were happy to see a few repeats from last year, we were excited to see some new faces come out. We even had a bit of time to hang out with a guy who shared some of his knowledge and thoughts with us. We hope that every one who came out had a great time and enjoyed themselves as much as we did.
