Announcing the Annual Celebration of Smiles Event

This year I’ll be hosting two events to help raise money for Operation Smile (a group that is very near and dear to my heart).

First of all, for a small donation of $24  you can update your professional headshot and save a smile too (only applies to “in-studio” business portrait sessions at the studio of Sheila Hebert Photography in Splendora, Texas).  These sessions usually take about 30-minutes.  If you’d like to purchase now and use for later, we can do that too!  The Celebration Of Smiles ~ Headshot Event is going on now through April 21, 2017.

Give me a call or email to get scheduled (281-804-3148 / info@hebertphoto.com)

SMILE:)

ps…more info coming soon on the 2nd event (just a little hint…it involves ducks and bunnies:)!

What a fabulous year 2016 was!!! I feel incredibly blessed to have had such a small part in your life – THANK YOU to all my clients for giving me the opportunity to photograph you, your families, and your events!

Here’s to a healthy, happy, and prosperous new year!

I’m so excited for this year’s Celebration of Smiles Event!!!  For a small donation of $24 you’ll receive a complimentary 5×7 gift print and a mini-session (about 20 minutes).  By participating, you’ll help support Operation Smile, which provides free surgeries for children around the world who suffer with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities.

 

For every 10 individuals we photograph, another child will receive the gift of surgery! It costs as little as $240 for Operation Smile’s medical volunteers to provide a life-saving surgery that can take as little as 45 minutes. One hundred percent of each donation will go to Operation Smile.

 

We also believe that our Celebration of Smiles Day is a wonderful way to teach children the value of reaching out to others. Even small children can understand the importance of Operation Smile’s work, and they are eager to help these needy children. We hope you will join with us in helping to make this vital work possible, and we promise to create a portrait that you will treasure.

  To schedule your session time for Celebration of Smiles, please call or email today (info@hebertphoto.com     281-804-3148). 

I can’t wait to see your smiling face:)

Last week I had the PLEASURE of helping out the Lone Survivor Foundation by photographing an event with Marcus Luttrell and the North Cypress Medical Center.  I can’t even begin to tell you what an honor this was for me to be able to give back in my own little way.  Not only did I have the chance to meet Marcus Luttrell (Thank You & God Bless You Sir), but I also was able to meet Mr. Rigby (Mr. Lutrell’s service dog & best friend).  I instantly fell in love with Mr. Rigby!!!  However, the feeling wasn’t mutual – there was no way Mr. Rigby was leaving his owner’s side:)  And that is exactly what Mr. Rigby is trained to do. 

I’m still surprised sometimes that people haven’t heard of Lone Survivor – whether it be the book, the movie, or the foundation itself.  Please take a minute to look at the Lone Survivor Foundation website (http://lonesurvivorfoundation.org/).  It truly is a great cause!  Maybe you can help support LSF in your own small way or maybe you know someone who could benefit from their help.

 

Here are just a few images from the event…

 

 

 

Meet Jen and her handsome boys!!!  Jen called me a few weeks ago about a business portrait she needed for her job and a few of her boys sporting her “company shirts”.  I was more than happy that I could help.  Jen is the volunteer coordinator for the Lone Survivor Foundation.  I’m sure everyone has heard of Marcus Lutrell and his best selling book/movie Lone Survivor.  Well, the Lone Survivor Foundation is the organization that Marcus established based on his own experiences and needs of healing & making the transisition back into the civillian life after war.  Here’s a little more explanation from the LSF website

The intent was to bring the wounded service members into the same type of environment that healed Marcus. A place of solitude and beauty, where there was a close-knit and understanding support system. A place where the service members and their families could heal together as they all worked through the consequences of war. The Foundation is dedicated to honoring and remembering American service members by providing unique educational, rehabilitation, recovery, and wellness opportunities to U.S. Armed Forces members and their families.  

You may or may not know that I’m very patriotic {please don’t confuse that with political…that I am not}.  But having many family members who are or have served to protect our country makes LSF {and any organization that helps service members and/or veterans} very close to my heart.  But regardless of having family in the military, these men & women who serve our country deserve more than anyone can give them.  So again, it was a huge honor for Jen to ask me to do this {even such a little thing like providing a business portrait}.

And I look forward to giving more back to LSF in the future!

Please visit the LSF website to find out more about this organization and other ways we can all help.  Remember it’s the little things that we all can do that add up!!!
