“Many people were amazed that it was free, with no strings attached,” writes local Help-Portrait Event Director Nigel Wiggins, including one special moment: “A 12-year-old girl saved for two years to buy a puppy and wanted a photo with her new dog.”

Nigel notes that at their event Centro Lounge in Eastbourne, UK, the “line between volunteers and subjects was blurred.” Here he shares a few of faces of the day:
