Gregory Cazillo, Elverson, PA photographer, used his glove-like-hands to comfortably mold the infants into a photo session that the new parents and a foster mom wouldnt forget while his station partner Katherine Azar, Malvern, PA, angled and captured each face and pose with her Nikon D3s.

Greg Posing an Infant

Help Portrait Philadelphia

Written by Stephanie M. Schroepfer

Thirty years ago, this Philadelphia Presbyterian church used to be a synagogue. Today, the church was a photography studio. Taking turns hauling the boxes and bags of gear, Angelsea Urban from Barnegat and her team at Creative Eye Photography unloaded her SUV at New Life Church Philadelphia on Roosevelt Blvd. to create a professional photography studio to help those who are unable to get professional photos taken of themselves, their family and their friends. There she joined 7 other photographers in teams who all donated their time, talent and treasures to help and serve others.

Beyond photographers there were other volunteers such as Donna Donat, location and event coordinator, Sam Shelley, Help-Portrait veteran, and Harmony Urban, Urbans seven-year-old daughter who was the hospitality expert with a specialty in giving away hugs and presents to the other small children who came through the doors. All came together for one purpose to serve and bless others through the art of photography and love.

Help-Portraits targeted audience is those who have no means or limited means to attain professional photos. If every picture told a thousand words and within every face is a story, imagine how many stories in thousands of words a few photographs could tell?

A woman, Priscilla Starr, came in early in the morning with a small child. Starr was a first-time foster mom to 4-month-old Jaden. His mom is in a half-way house trying to recuperate from her past mistakes, but Starr wonders if mother and son will ever reunite- these photographs may be the only thing tangible his mother has of her son. And if they do, this may be Priscillas only professional photograph of Jaden.

Strangers united in Help-Portraits cause, as Aaron D. Stallworth and Kriston Bethel, Pennsylvania photographers, worked side-by-side to simply get a smile from a stubborn 3-year-old for his mom to keep forever. Stallworth tried dozens of strategies, one of which included lying on the ground, to get the little guy talking just to smirk for the camera that Bethel held.

Gregory Cazillo, Elverson, PA photographer, used his glove-like-hands to comfortably mold the infants into a photo session that the new parents and a foster mom wouldnt forget while his station partner Katherine Azar, Malvern, PA, angled and captured each face and pose with her Nikon D3s.

Photographers, all around the globe, came together on this same December afternoon in 570 locations in 56 different countries, in all 50 states. New Life Presbyterian Church was a new location in this third year of this world-wide Help-Portrait event and had an impressive first year with 68 individuals.

Angelsea Urban and her team posed, printed and delivered photographs to each person that came their way. Beyond a photo, they gave hugs, smiles and encouragement, even coffee and donuts all with no strings attached.

Every photographer and volunteer agreed that the early hours, the empty stomachs and the sore smiling cheeks were worth it as they packed the gear and discussed plans for next years Help-Portrait event.
