boise lifestyle photographer: help portrait

 Last Saturday I had the honor of participating in Boise’s second annual Help Portrait held at Cathedral of the Rockies. Help Portrait is a dedicated day each December where photographers come together all over the world and give themselves and their services to provide portraits to those who can’t otherwise afford the luxury of a family photo.

Here are just a few behind the scenes images.

In addition to photographers, people volunteered to their time to help style our guests with clothing donated by the Idaho Youth Ranch.

Every guest gets to leave with a framed print with beautiful frames, once again, donated by our community.

Pots of homemade soup, enough to feed all of the volunteers and guests. boise_lifestyle_photographer010

Zeppole and Albertsons donated their day olds…which were still perfectly fresh and delicious!

I loved that this stylist took extra time to do the girls’ nails.

Christmas music was piped through a small sound system, the smell of warm soup and donuts filled the room, everywhere I looked there was someone giving love to another and it made me think that this is what Christmas is all about…giving whatever you have to others. It made me so very proud to be a photographer and part of a community of people who give so selflessly of themselves. There are a lot of people not photographed here who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to pull it all together. They are the unsung heroes.
