On Saturday Dec. 12th I joined the team of volunteers at
Help Portrait It was Portland's first time participating in this nationwide event.
We were able to take portraits for 46 families in need, a total of 115 people. There were 38 volunteers, including photographers, assistants, admin, and hair/makeup. It was a pretty impressive turnout of families and volunteers.
This was a fun change of pace from the salon. I felt like I could make a difference curling, straightening, styling someone's hair to look their best in these professional portraits. I will definitely try to spread the word and help out again next year.
