Jason Ayers, of Greenville, SC, shared this behind-the-scenes photos and stories from their Help-Portrait event this year.

“We had a woman who was currently pregnant and living under a bridge with her boyfriend. She went to get her hair and makeup done and told the hair person that she had not had her hair done or even touched in the last 10 years.”

“One man was so excited because he was 34 and had never had a photo taken of him.”

“The smiles on the faces when they saw their photo said more than any of the words ever could. Everyone matters.”
