National Family Portrait Month

July 2019

Join in the fun with National Family Portrait Month!

This July, book in for a special family portrait and help make wishes come true for kids with life-threatening illnesses.

National Portrait Month was founded by photographer and coach, Bernie Griffiths, and his wife Wendy. In 2018, the campaign raised an incredible $31,000 for Make-A-Wish and this year is shaping up to be just as big!

This year's theme is Mother's and their Children with your $51 registration fee donated to Make-A-Wish in full.

Dad's, we promise you can still get involved too! Find out more below.

Thanks to National Family Portrait Month, I finally have some great photographs of my family that I had been putting off for years. The photographs hang proudly in my home.
