In October 2009, I joined 15 other Nashville photographers to do a test of what Help-Portrait could be and do. My friend, Jeremy Cowart has pioneered this movement from an idea to an event that has crossed many state lines and included countries from all over the world! We initially met at the Nashville Rescue Mission and my life was forever changed.
When I moved to Montana last year- I knew that Help-Portrait needed to be experienced here in the Valley. I was overwhelmed by the response from the photographers whom I had never met, the amount of volunteers who showed up and the heart of the people here in the town that I had only lived in for about 3 months. We planned the Help-Portrait event in just 30 days and the day itself was incredible.
I was blessed in my own way during this event. My younger sister passed away right before our first planning meeting and the emails and phone calls from the photographers who had heard of the news meant so much to me. Help-Portrait is about so much more than you think……and it will forever change your life.
Below is a video from the Help-Portrait Montana event last year. If you would like more information, please visit the official Help-Portrait site. If you are interested in being part of Help-Portrait Montana [in the Flathead Valley]- please join our group here. More details to follow…..
See you on Saturday, December 10th!
