Every year since 2009 I have participated in an international photography event named Help-Portrait. Click on the link to see a 5 minute video of the original event in Nashville. The concept is simple: identify someone in need, take their portrait, give them their portrait. Since 2009 almost 300,000 portraits taken by roughly 20,000 photographers have been delivered to individuals in 62 countries. This year I have organized an event at our church in Virginia and this Saturday we should have 50-60 families show up to have a portrait taken and delivered that day. The families are the clients of INMED Partnerships for Children, an organization dedicated to providing services that help children towards maximizing their potential. To prepare for the day, I needed to refresh my studio portrait capability. Humfrey is my go to model. This is a 2 light shot - key light in a shoot through umbrella camera right, and fill light (-3 stops) camera left in a reflector umbrella.

Humfrey made me smile when the picture first came up. If all your pictures do the same then it will be a great success. Maybe Humfrey will stick around to help with the shooting. You will be assured of big smiles all around. Touching idea your group offers.

Great studio portrait of Humphrey. Of course he is capable of sitting still and staring straight ahead and not fidgeting :)
