Photographers in Winnipeg brought smiles to the faces of some of the city's less fortunate residents.
Help Portraits is a global movement that provides free professional portraits.
In the past, Winnipeg photographers associated with Help Portraits operated out of schools. This year, they set up at Children of the Earth Hight School and John M. Kay School.
Photographer Ian McCausland says it's a great way for families to create holiday memories.
"Especially when there's younger people and kids involved, I think there's important value to having the opportunity or occasion to recognize your family," McCausland said.
The Help Portraits ran from noon to 6 p.m. CT on Saturday.
