Help-Portrait Mission: Founded by Celebrity Photographer Jeremy Cowart, Help-Portrait is a community of photographers coming together across the world to use their photography skills to give back to their local community.
In December, photographers around the world grabbed their cameras, found people in need and took their picture. When the prints are ready, the photographs are delivered. This year, Nicholas Wray, decided it was time for Sacramento, CA to begin participating in Help-Portrait.
Federico Students recently had the opportunity to volunteer their time to the Help-Portrait project. In conjunction with 4 photographers, 1 cinematographer and other volunteers, students helped bring this project to life in the Sacramento area.
Entire families showed up to have their pictures taken and we feel blessed to have been involved in this incredible event. Students performed hair styling and makeup services for participants to help create the transformation displayed in the finished look.
Check out the Behind the Scenes Video: Shot by Curtis Smith of Smith Cinematic and Edited by Nicholas Wray.

“This was such a rewarding experience for me. I was able to donate my talents to those who are struggling… the power of Beauty is incredible! To not only be able to give back but spend the day with such awesome photographers, made for the best day I can remember in a long time.” Tonya L.
