ROGERS, Ark (KFSM) -- A group of Northwest Arkansas photographers and volunteers gathered to take family portraits for the holidays, for people who may not afford them otherwise on Saturday (Dec. 2).
The goal of "Help-Portrait" is to find a person or family in need, take and print their portrait.
The Salinas family was one of the families who took part in the event this year.
"It means a lot to us you know we’ve...we haven’t been able to do this," Johanna Salinas said. "When we saw that we could, we went for it.”
The family said this is the first time they have been able to take a picture together.
Johanna's brother Manuel said their mom never had any pictures of all of them.
Each family received a CD with multiple photos on it and one printed portrait for free.
Last year, in December, more than 500 people were photographed, by 29 photographers and 175 volunteers at three locations in NWA, according to their website.
