Photographer takes 131 portraits in a day to help charity
Sean McGrath wanted to help group that supports young, single mothers in Saint John
A Saint John photographer took more than 100 portraits Sunday to raise money for a vulnerable population in the city.
"We just had a new baby and we realize that they help new moms out," said McGrath.
"And you know, there's two of us at home and it's hard raising a little guy. So you can only imagine what it would be like for a new mom."
McGrath asked participants to pay what they were able for their portrait.
"I probably wouldn't have thought to get a head shot of myself recently, but I got my own business so I thought it was great and at the same time I'm helping a really worthwhile charity," she said.
McGrath's goal was to take 100 portraits in a single day. He surpassed that total, with 131 people taking part and raising more than $1,200.
