Portraits of Love
Portraits of Love
Thank you for your interest in volunteering your time and talent for the Portraits of Love project. We will be able to make this year a little brighter for our U.S. soldiers and their families because of you. We are excited to be working with the USO again this year, and ask for your time at one of their bases to benefit our military families.

As a participating photographer, we're asking you to volunteer your time for a weekend at a USO base in your area (or one you’d like to travel to) during a weekend determined by the base (Christmas/New Years, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or another date.) We’re asking you to donate your time and talents to take a free portrait of a family whose loved one is serving, or who has served in the armed forces overseas. All you have to do is take the portrait, upload it to Shutterfly.com and email the album to the family. The actual printing and mailing of the portrait will be provided courtesy of Shutterfly.

Benefits for you:
As a participating photographer, you will receive the following:
  • National and local media exposure on this website through national PR placements
  • Opportunity to meet prospective clients in your community
  • The satisfaction of giving back to the soldiers who serve our country.
  • • Free Shutterfly Photo Book.
  • The satisfaction of giving back to the soldiers who serve our country.
