We had the absolute pleasure to serve

over 300 people in partnership with Help Portrait this year!!


Thanks to all the volunteers for this year’s event!

And to our sponsors: Missio Dei Logan Square, Pierre’s Bakery, Intelligentsia Coffee, Fluer, and Bang Bang Pie.

Help Portrait History

Help-Portrait was founded by celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart and Kyle Chowning in 2008. Our mission is to empower photographers, hairstylists and makeup artists to use their skills, tools and expertise to give back to their local community.

Annual Events

Each December, photographers, hairstylists and makeup artists all around the world will find people in need, take their picture, print their picture and then deliver it—free of charge.

What They’re About

Help-Portrait is about GIVING the pictures, not taking them. These portraits aren’t for a portfolio, website, or sale. It’s about giving people who otherwise couldn’t afford photography, a chance to capture a moment, a memory…and a whole lot more.
