The objective is simple: Find people in need, take their portrait, print their portrait and hand it to them.
For the last 3 years we held events at local shelters, rehabilitation facilities and nursing homes around the Milwaukee area. We provide professional hair, make up and photography services, print the images on-site and gift them to to all who attend. The experience is indescribable. Many of the people who attend these events haven’t had a professional photograph taken of them EVER. We meet so many incredible people and hear stories that continuously bring us to tears, and seeing the joy that a simple photograph brings to them is, to put it mildly, overwhelming.
These events are done completely free of charge, with local amateur and professional photographers, licensed hair stylists, make up artists, and amazing people looking to make a change in the lives of the people around us donating their time and their skills to this effort. We are always looking for more people to support our efforts. Both behind the lens and behind the scenes. We have a lot to do to reach all the people in the Milwaukee area and we are working tirelessly to do it, but we can’t do it alone. Even if you don’t know if you can help directly perhaps there is something you can do. It doesn’t hurt to contact us and find out. Please follow up with the contact link and talk with us. You might be surprised to know how easy and rewarding it is to participate or help to make all this happen.
Our objective is to be able to donate free portraiture to the under served residents of Milwaukee county and to show them that they are valuable, respected and important members of our communities. That they may be looked past on a daily basis but that it should not get them down for they are beautiful and worthy people who may just need to see it in their hands to understand what we mean. The people who attend our events are just as important to the functioning of the city as the Mayor and are just as deserving of having their photograph taken. Many of whom are hard working families and individuals who have found themselves in situations beyond their control and haven’t seen a decent photo of themselves in years, if ever. To many people it is as much about self esteem as anything else. And that is what we are here to do, provide self esteem through professional quality photographs.
