Global movement returns to the area

LCC wants to take your picture

Lansing, Mich. – Lansing Community College is bringing the Help-Portrait event to the Greater Lansing area from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4 in the Gannon Commons.

Help-Portrait provides FREE, professional family photographs to those in need. This event is open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis, and registration is encouraged.

Help-Portrait is a global movement of photographers and volunteers giving back through free family photography. All families will receive a professional photo session, printed photo, thumb drive with their digital images and a no copyright statement for photo use.

“LCC is delighted to bring Help-Portrait back to Lansing,” said LCC President Steve Robinson. “Our amazing photography faculty, students and volunteers are proud to participate in this touching International event.”

LCC wants the community to know that family is how YOU define it. The Help-Portrait event is for anyone who would like a portrait – individuals, couples, blended families or “traditional” families. We are sorry that no animals are included, with the exception of service animals.

“Having a professional family portrait made is something many in our society cannot afford," Robinson said. “It is incredibly touching to be a part of this simple yet profound process.”

You are invited to join LCC for holiday music, cookie decorating, coloring stations, a hot cocoa and coffee bar, snacks and so much fun!
