Kids grow up fast. (Too fast if you ask us!) But you can preserve your family’s lasting memories – all while helping Delaware families in need by being a part of Children & Families First’s upcoming Family Photo Album! Children & Families First has been serving Delawareans in need since 1884 with a mission to help children facing adversity on their journey to adulthood. We use proven methods to help families raise their children so they can flourish and provide services statewide, serving approximately 40,000 people each year.
Here’s how it works:
Talented local photographer Elisa Komins Morris donates her time to take beautiful family photos in a gorgeous setting— White Oak Landscapes in Greenville . Photos of participating families are then compiled into a keepsake album distributed at Children & Families First’s Spring 2015 fundraising event, A Taste for Art*. Additional photos may be purchased directly from the photographer and make great gifts!
Dates in Sept. and early October are timed perfectly for you to get photos while you still have your summer tan – while the mid-October thru November dates make gorgeous keepsakes with the lush fall foliage as a backdrop. Our November 28th date falls on Black Friday – the perfect day to gather the entire family together for a fall outing (including those elusive college kids!). Either way you can’t go wrong. And did we mention – pets are part of the family too and are welcome to join in on the Family Photo fun!
What to wear:
The all-important question. It’s easy! Wear what works for you and your family. In other words, express yourself! We’ve seen it all – some families show off their new fall fashions (can you say boot season?!), while others dress to show love for their favorite sports team. On chilly days, we recommend dressing warmly – these photos are taken outdoors, after all (don’t worry; we have an indoor waiting area). But you can always remove your layers to show your style right before your photo is taken and then jump back into your jacket to warm up once the photo is snapped. Just be yourself, and you and your family are guaranteed to look fabulous!
