I thought you would want to know about a very special family portrait promotion we will be
participating in with an elite group of photographers around the country. This October, we will celebrate “Family Portrait Month,” a wonderful opportunity for you to
update your family portrait (or portraits of your children), and support Operation Smile, which
treats children around the world who suffer with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial
Along with other studio members of Professional Photographers of America (PPA), we have
pledged to contribute 50% of your session fee to PPA Charities, which has chosen Operation
Smile as its charitable partner. What’s more, we want you to benefit from this special offer: You will receive 24 free holiday cards.
Recording the faces of children and their families is our greatest pleasure. That’s why we believe
so strongly in the work of Operation Smile. Each year this incredible organization of more than
6,000 volunteer doctors, nurses, dentists, and specialized health care professionals, perform free
reconstructive surgeries for children suffering with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial
deformities. More than 100,000 children are born with a facial deformity each year in Operation
Smile’s 26 partner countries.
We hope you will join with us in helping to make this vital work possible. Don’t forget that the
holiday season is right around the corner, so there’s no better time for a family portrait, which is
always appreciated as gifts for family and friends and to send along with holiday greeting cards.
As always . . . we look forward to creating some truly wonderful portraits of your family.
