Celebration of Smiles Success! | Central Florida Children Photographer

We are excited to share that MHP, with the help of some amazing clients, recently raised over $600 for Operation Smile on PPA Charities’ Celebration of Smiles Day!  Get more information about these organizations here.

Operation Smile is a charity organization that provides surgeries for children with facial deformities.  We were able to raise enough funds for almost 3 surgeries!  Here are some of the adorable portraits that we made on Celebration of Smiles Day!

Thanks so much to everyone that participated!  We have such generous families 😀

We are SO happy to reveal the winners of the Back to School Cover Model Contest!  First- all of the kids did a great job!  Our private panel of judges had a tough time deciding on the winners, so thanks SO much for participating!  Volusia Parent and Flagler Parent raised money to benefit Futures Foundation of Volusia County and Flagler County Education Foundation with this cover contest.  What a great way to help out our community and to participate in something fun!

MHP Celebration of Smiles Mini Sessions | Central Florida PPA Charities Photographer

We are so excited to announce that MHP is teaming up with Professional Photographers of America (PPA) Charities again this year to benefit Operation Smile!  Operation Smile is an amazing charity organization.  They provide surgical procedures to children around the world with cleft palates and other facial deformities.  For more information about Operation Smile and their mission, visit their website here.

Celebration of Smiles is a nationwide fundraising day that PPA Charities presents with the help of PPA members across America.  We can’t wait to be a part of this event and we know that ya’ll can’t either 😀  You can get involved with a minimum donation of $24 that goes directly to Operation Smile.  That’s 10% of a surgery for a child in need!!!  For your donation, you will receive a mini session and our gift of a complimentary 5×7 desk portrait.

Contact us now to reserve your session!  Space is limited and these are going to fill fast for April 20th and 21st!  These sessions are for children ages 6 months and up.  To make it even better- the first 5 people to call will receive an additional desk portrait of their image for early booking.  Can’t wait to see each of you for this fun and beneficial event 😀

Time for something a little different! We recently photographed some beautiful dancers to help raise money for the Civic Ballet of Volusia County, a non-profit. A framed portrait was auctioned at  the first ever Clara’s Dream Ball. Thanks to our friends at the CBVC for including us in the fun! 🙂
