“I got to know about The Giving Portrait from a Mom’s group I am a part of, and my immediate reaction was “WOW! what a wonderful idea”. And my actual experience of getting the pictures done of my 2 small kids  was really amazing. The photographer and the supporting team were enthusiastic, patient and professional. They had to work really hard to get my active 3-year old to pose, but they managed and the end result was an amazing portrait of my kids that we are going to cherish.  Thank you for this wonderful initiative for giving back to the society and I hope you continue to expand this program year after year.” – Navneet Saini

“I am so thankful for the photography session with my kitty! She is almost 17 and had been just diagnosed with a tumor  and I kept looking for low cost photography or free and I couldn’t I couldn’t afford $300 for photography sessions due to being on disability. Thank you so much.” – Morgan Cope
