Celebration of Smiles- A Difference Maker Charity Photography Event- Details Announced!
This year's annual Difference Maker Event, Celebration of Smiles, will be formatted differently this time around! So pay close attention to the details spelled out below!
**Please NOTE: If you have participated in the past... There are NO appointments necessary this year and the event will be held offsite, not at the studio, we will be setting up our mobile studio at the address below. All you have to do is show up! :)**
What is it? Celebration of Smiles is an annual event sponsored by Professional Photographers of America as a collaborative effort to benefit Operation Smiles, a charity that is able to perform cleft palette surgeries to children in need. Our photography studio, Cherished Images at The 8th Street Studio participates every year because we believe that EVERYONE CAN BE A DIFFERENCE MAKER!! For every 10 smiles that we photograph (or for every $240 donation that we receive) Operation Smile is able to perform a life changing surgery!
Who can participate? Anyone! In this fast paced, appointment free environment, we photograph a headshot of just about anyone! We do request that babies be able to sit fully on their own, and that any pet that participates is mild mannered. We are looking for a bright and beautiful close up image, focusing on what we want to give back to others... a smile!
When is it? Saturday, April 7th, 2018 from 10am-2pm, 1st come, first served! NO APPOINTMENTS NECESSARY!
Where is it held? This year we have a gracious host we are working with at Bauter Dentistry Aesthetics, which is conveniently located in Boise at 210 W. Mallard Dr. Boise, ID 83706
How much does it cost? For a minimum donation of at least $24, you will receive a complimentary, individual, head shot session and a desk-sized print that we will gift to you! ALL donations will go directly to PPA Charities to benefit Operation Smile.
What should I wear? Clothing should be primarily on the simple side of things, avoiding lots of bold patterns, stripes, or logos. Longer sleeves are usually recommended for anyone over the age of 12, and because these are close up images- you can relax- Phew! Bottoms and shoes aren't too much to worry about! Colors that are solid, neutral and flattering tend to make for the most timeless portraits.
When will my portraits be ready? It will take approximately 2-4 weeks to process and package your portrait, at which time we will call you to arrange an appointment time to either pick it up at the studio, or for $4.25 we can package at ship it to your home.
May I purchase more prints? Of course! When you pick up your portrait, an order form will be enclosed, that entitles you to special event pricing, should you need any additional copies of the portrait you receive.
Do I get my file? We are a full service, finished product studio, and we believe fully in the value of professionally printed portraits, we also understand that everyone loves to share! Therefore, a watermarked web file can be posted, by request, if you purchase any of our special edition event packages.
Anything else we should know? Yes, these are quick sessions, and due to the limited nature and availability, we will only be photographing individual, close up images during this event. As much as we LOVE to get creative with full body images and family group portraits, space and time dictate that that kind of fun will have to be saved for custom sessions scheduled at a later date. Think of these sessions as really, REALLY good, school type photos.
Are we going to get a good picture from a quick session? As professionals, photographing for over 20 years now, we are very well seasoned and will do everything possible to ensure you get the best quality available to you. And as with everything that Cherished Images does, satisfaction is always guaranteed, for any situation that we personally have control over. 2 year olds melting down in a puddle on the floor, and dogs that only want to chase squirrels will be given 100% effort and a promise to do the very best we can ;)
Still have questions? Please call us at the studio at 208-331-2288 and we will answer any additional questions you may have!
