Portrait Playtime photo fundraisers are a wonderful way to offer your families a unique opportunity to work with a professional photographer to create lasting memories. We find that photography fundraisers are a great way to strengthen the bond between an schools or other community groups and the families by providing a high-quality, wonderful photographic experience for the whole family. It's great--families get to support the school by buying something they already need--and the school benefits by raising funds to support the important work they are doing on behalf of the families. Plus the host is providing a service to parents by carefully vetting the photographer and providing a central place for photo shoots and follow up meetings with the photographer. We find busy parents are so relieved to have this checked of their mental "to-do" list, they sign-up quickly and are thrilled with the results.
