Help Portrait Brooklyn

*** Update, we're doing Help Portait in the East Village this year on Saturday December 3rd. Would love for you to email Hilary@DeanStreetSociety.com & come help out! ***

An incredible event called Help Portrait is happening December 10th. Groups of photographers {plus people who do hair, make-up, styling, hot-coffee-providing & child-wrangling} come together around the world to offer free portraits. Last year at Help Portrait Brooklyn:

We had a 12-year-old boy who'd never had a photograph with his grandmother.

... 3 generations of women.

... brand new babies.

... a father with his two sons.

... the most beautiful 80-year-old woman by herself.

The income level in the community was such that these people don't have iPhones & photo apps they're snapping pics with. They don't have fancy SLR cameras. They're not hiring top-notch photographers for engagements & family portraits. And here they are sitting before some of THE most incredible photographers I've ever known. And walking away with a gorgeous image of their family they can pass on for generations.

Visit Help Portrait & find your local crew. You will have such a rewarding day! And {since we're not allowed to share images of guests from the day} you'll work alongside incredible people & might engage in holiday themed shenanigans.

{Once upon a time I introduced 2 doppleganger friends on Twitter & created a year-long bi-statal bromance. Brad flew in from Chicago & Help Portrait was the first time the 3 of us were in the same room.}
