Family Portraits and Photo Frames (All skill levels)

Saturday, October 1, 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Fall is right around the corner, so celebrate the change in season with a free family portrait session at the Southeast Museum of Photography!

Our backdrop will be decorated in a fall theme (pumpkins, hay bales, flowers, etc.) so be sure to wear (or bring along) clothing that will compliment the scene. As a bonus, kids will have the opportunity to create custom wooden photo frames using a special transfer technique. They will be able to choose from a variety of fall images to transfer to their frame, then finish it by adding their family portrait. Don't miss out on this exciting activity! Registration required.
