Something that I loved about Help-Portrait was how every photographer brought a different skill set. This really improved everyone’s experience. Kim had the foresight to bring a blanket, several toys, things that squeaked and a huge teddy bear along to the shoot. She knew that we would have families with young children, and would need to make them smile. I don’t think anyone else had really pondered that, I know I hadn’t. You can see her above, dangling some bells for a child (blocked in the shot). Totally saved the day.
Today I had the wonderful experience of being able to volunteer for the Help-Portrait project. You can find out more information about it here: help-portrait.com. Dale Zak wrote a quick blog about the project, which explains it better than I can. Thanks to everyone who helped out and a giant thank you to Krystian Olszanski for organizing the Saskatoon event.
