Help-Portrait 2011

Last Saturday, December 10th, was one of my favorite days of the year. It was Help-Portrait day, a day where photographers and other volunteers get together — all over the world — to donate portraits to those who need them most. It’s a fascinating, inspiring, and heart-warming movement. Here’s an AWESOME video explaining Help-Portrait. It does a better job than my words ever could.   Click here to read my Help-Portrait post from last year.  Click here to see the video edition of last year’s event.

Renee’s Senior Shoot | NWA Senior Portrait Photographer

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of shooting Renee’s senior portraits. Renee had a bad experience and mix up with another photographer and didn’t end up with a single print to call her own…so she became one of my 2012 Senior Reps for Bentonville High School! It was a very windy day at Lake Fayetteville, but we had a good time and walked away with some great shots. If you’re a Bentonville High School senior and know Renee, ask her at school for a rep card and you’ll get a discount on your senior portraits!

Help Support the NWA Las Fotos Project

It’s not often I ask people to donate things (or money!), but this is one of those times. One of my good friends, Be Gutierrez, is embarking on a project she heard about on a recent visit to L.A. After meeting with the founder of the project, she decided to bring it to Northwest Arkansas. It’s called Las Fotos (The Photos in Spanish). You can see more about the project here, or check it out on Facebook.
