Local Photographers Take Portraits to Give to Needy Families

Green Bay -

Saturday morning Scott Eastman was going for laughs.

"Ready, one two three, click," he said. "Ha ha ha!"

The local photographer setup shop inside Green Bay's Kroc Center.

It's part of Help-Portrait, a global initiative giving away family portraits to families that can't afford them.

Teaming up with the Salvation Army in Green Bay, 43 families stepped into the lens.

"How awesome is it to come in and have something so sweet given to you?" Christina Arts said, a mom of two boys. "Especially around the holidays."

The idea was founded by celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart.

All around the world Saturday, a community of photographers gave back.

"We're all given talents," Eastman said, owner of GreatScott Images. "We're all given a skill set. We're all given something that we can do, so we felt if you can use that to make someone's life a little better, even for a day, even for a moment, then you should totally do that."

Families have the portraits printed immediately, ready to take home.

"I don't think it changes anyone's live," Eastman said. "But if we can just make it sweeter, just by a little bit, then I think it's super awesome."
