Portraits for Love Description

The idea behind Portraits for LOVE is to provide portraits for individuals and families that cannot afford professional portraits.

Whether it be a result of a crisis from a natural disaster or accident for example home damaged by fire or other circumstances.  Portraits for LOVE volunteers assemble to help families in need.


The goal of Portraits for LOVE  is to help families around the world with portraits of their families and loved ones throughout the season, taken by the incredibly talented photographers within the industry. To date 1,000's portraits have been taken and sent to soldiers and their families.


We are looking to use the strength and commitment of our Portraits for LOVE volunteers to help support this project and provide opportunities for the creative community to help families in need.


Portraits for LOVE is working with local USO offices and other community non-profit organizations to gather families for Portraits for LOVE events. The goal of the project is to create memorable portraits of families.  


We wish to thank all of the participating photographers and the creative community who have helped make Portraits for LOVE a success and the organization's we have worked with.

Franklin, TN is a great place to create art and business. 

It’s just a city filled with a lot of spirit and cool locations. 

Downtown Franklin, TN is full of life and culture. When you’re in town, make sure to hit up one of my favorite coffee joints. 

Arin is a photographer who recently turned model. She's in the process of updating her portfolio.

So we made some time for a warm-weather photoshoot in downtown Franklin on a very nice day.

It can be stressful shooting a photographer who has turned into a model. They know when you are trying to figure out things on the camera.

Arin brought lots of creative ideas to the photoshoot. But also allowed me to run with the ideas and shoot some of my favorite locations in downtown Franklin, TN.
