This October Thistledown Photography will participate with photographers around the country in a very special family portrait promotion. Throughout the month we will celebrate Family Portrait Month, a wonderful opportunity for you update your family portrait or portraits of your children, and help to support Operation Smile.
Each year this organization of more than 6,000 volunteer doctors, nurses, dentists, and specialized health care professionals performs free reconstructive surgeries for children suffering with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities. More than 100,000 children are born with a facial deformity each year in Operation Smile’s twenty six partner countries.
It costs just $240 to pay for surgery for one child. Our Sweet Smile Holiday Mini Sessions this year will be $124 for the Print package (of which $24 will be donated to Operation Smile) and $248 for the Digital package (of which $48 will be donated to Operation Smile). We will also have some little gift items and add-ons available, all priced at $24. For the math challenged among us, this means that just ten of the little $24 donation blocks that I have built into the Holiday Minis will change a child’s life.
