Join Us September 30th!

To kick this month in to high gear, we’re going to start things off right with a massive party and mini session! On Sunday 30 September we will be hosting a mini portrait session event from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm at Modern Film Studios, 1401 Walnut St, Boulder CO – the Mama and Me mini sessions to benefit Operation Smile!

On that day, for $75, mothers and their children will receive a mini twenty-minute portrait session with award-winning editorial Boulder portrait photographer Elizabeth Williamsberg and two 5×7 fine art gift prints, with all net proceeds from every session donated toward Operation Smile. This year, our the goal is to raise $480, the amount needed to help fund a two life-changing surgeries for a child in desperate need.

The Inspiration Behind Mama & Me

Modern mothers are the most likely to be behind the camera when family photographs are made. As a member of the Professional Photographers of America, I believe that everyone should exist in photographs, and I want the Mama & Me event to support mothers being present with their children in images. Plus, it is never too soon to think about the holidays, and the desk-sized portraits make great gifts for fathers and grandparents!

“Mama & Me” is the perfect opportunity to have your portrait made and make it possible to truly change the lives of children who would otherwise face a lifetime of pain and rejection or even death.

About Operation Smile

Founded in 1982, Operation Smile is a worldwide children’s medical charity dedicated to helping children and young adults born with facial deformities. In as little as 45 minutes, one cleft lip surgery can change a child’s life forever. Every three minutes a child somewhere in the world is born with a facial deformity. One in ten will not survive to see their first birthday. Those who do survive often live in isolation and pain. Each year, more than 100,000 children are born with a facial deformity in Operation Smile’s 26 partner countries. Tens of thousands remain untreated.

Capturing smiles is what portrait photographers do every day. It’s hard to imagine a more appropriate charity for a photographer to support! And when parents participate in this event, it’s a wonderful way to teach children the value of reaching out to others. Even small children can understand the importance of Operation Smile’s work, and they are eager to help these needy children.
