The first annual Help Portrait takes place this Saturday at two different locations, one in Maple Ridge and the other in Pitt Meadows.

The Pitt Meadows event will run from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Heritage Hall (12460 Harris Rd.), and the Maple Ridge event will run from 1p.m. until 8 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Church (22165 Dewdney Trunk Rd.).

Help Portrait is a worldwide event that allows families and individuals in need to be professionally photographed in a private photo shoot for free. The free portraits are printed and framed on-site for the subjects to take home with them. Community resources and assistance are also offered where needed.

“This event has the potential to change people’s lives,” says photographer Matt Brennan, co-organizer of the event. “People in need who haven’t had a portrait taken in years; single parents who can’t afford a family portrait; kids or parents who are battling an illness; these are the kinds of people who Help Portrait benefits.”

• For more information call Matt Brennan at 604-817-7517 or email him at matt@matt-brennan.com. For more information, visit http://helpportraitridgemeadows.com/.
