Celebrate Your Family and Bring a Smile to a Needy Child! Operation Smile Fundraiser Limited Edition Fall portrait sessions this Sunday!

19 10 2011

Hi friends,

Your smiles can help provide a smile for a child in need! 🙂

This year we will be raising money for Operation Smile, www.operationsmile.org, which treats children around the world who suffer with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities.  More than 100,000 children are born with a facial deformity every year in Operation Smile partner countries, yet tens of thousands remain untreated.


Sunday, October 23rd from 11a.m. – 5 p.m.,  we will be having a fantastic time celebrating your children, family and this beautiful weather. The colors of Autumn are vibrant, the weather is gorgeous, the time has come for our Limited Edition Fall portrait sessions.  At Pam Long Photography, we have designed a wonderful outdoor session that brings the magic of the fall season to you!  Your beautiful smiles and laughter will complement the season, creating timeless portraits of your children that you will cherish for years to come!

These Limited Edition sessions will be held in our Garden Studio with a backdrop of natural grasses and fallen leaves, ideal for timeless portraits of your children.

Documenting the faces of children and their families is our greatest pleasure.  That’s why we feel so strongly in the work of Operation Smile.  Please check out  www.operationsmile.org.  For as little as $240, we can help provide a cleft lip or cleft palate surgery…..translation…..we schedule 10 sessions, we provide one surgery for a very deserving child!
