It’s about giving back. It’s about caring about others. It’s about sharing your time & talent. It’s about helping. It’s about community. It’s about putting a SMILE in someone else’s heart. It’s called HELP-PORTRAIT and it was founded by a photographer named Jeremy Cowart. The date : December 4th…a day to give back. The concept is simple. Find SOMEONE in NEED. Give them a reason to SMILE by taking their photo or their family’s photo, giving them a portrait and asking nothing in return.

Saturday DEC 4th, I had the honor of spending the day with other photographers in my community that all volunteered to participate in a HELP-PORTRAIT day in our community. The organizer, Jared Gunter put together an amazing group of volunteers for the day. I don’t want to leave anyone’s name out, so I will simply post of photo of the volunteers below. An INCREDIBLE group of people that I am now PROUD to call my FRIENDS! It was a day of overwhelming happiness and togetherness. With all the bad that we see in the world, it was a BLESSING to see such wonderful people giving of their time & talents to help make others SMILE.
Special THANKS to the Savannah Baptist Center for providing us the space to use. Also thanks to our local Chick-fil-A for providing food and a big shout to our local TV station, WSAV for coming out to cover the story. It was a day FULL of blessing for us all. I’m already looking forward to next year.
