Free family portraits for fire victims
Local industry professionals in Northern California are coming together to host a free family portrait event for victims of the 2017 wildfires. Any family who lost their home or their photographs in the fires is invited to register. The event is called FireProofs and will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, May 6, at Solage Resort, 755 Silverado Trail N., Calistoga.
Jim Vetter, owner of Jim Vetter Photography in Fairfax, conceived of the project the day the fires began. “I woke up on the morning of October 9 to the smell of smoke,” Vetter recalled. “When I realized what was happening, my heart broke. I knew I wanted to help these families.”
Families must pre-register for a free 20-minute portrait session by visiting www.bitly.com/Fireproofs_SignUps.
Additional information and a full sponsor list is available at www.fireproofs.org. For more information, contact Vetter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
