October is Family Portrait Month!

Home » Durango Photography Blog » October is Family Portrait Month!

Each year, we participate in what is called Family Portrait Month. We, along with many other studios across the country, donate $ from our family sessions during October, to Operation Smile. The need for Operation Smile is most critical in countries outside of the U.S. Cleft lips and cleft palates are the fourth most common birth defect in the world. In developing countries, 1 in 500 children is born with a correctable facial deformity…but their families don’t have the resources and some countries don’t have doctors to perform the surgeries. The children can’t eat; can’t speak; or go to school. Through your family portrait sessions, we can give these children the opportunity for happier, more fulfilled lives. It takes $240 to fix a child’s smile and last year, I am very happy to say, we donated enough to fix 2 smiles! We would, of course, love to at least double that donation this year! So, we need your help to make that happen! We donate 1/2 your session fee to Operation Smile when you schedule your session during October and for helping us help these kids, we offer 25% off your holiday cards! We have already had 2 families participate so far this month and it is only the 7th! Thank you both very much! All you high school seniors whom we have photographed, you have a FREE Family Session – so why not use it now? We will still donate half your fee, even though you won’t be paying it, and you will still receive 25% off cards! Of course, you are more than welcome to make a donation if you would like. So, give us a call today 970-259-9255! Thank you so much for participating in such a wonderful cause and we can’t wait to work with you!
