Get a free photo on 12/17 from one of many photographers when you donate a new toy
LANSING - On Saturday, December 17th, nearly a dozen of the Capital City's most prominent and beloved photographers will partner with a local organization to put on "Toys For Photos". The effort is an attempt to raise toys for the area's youth and is in collaboration with 'Unwrapping Imperfections', a platform founded by Dr. Tammy Barnett, PhD., that focuses on the development and empowerment of women and others.
How It Works
If you would like to participate, here's the process:
Purchase a new toy
On the home page, click the "schedule now" button to book your shoot
Choose the 17th on the calendar and select your preferred time slot
Click 'Next' and fill in all the required personal information and 'Book'!
It's that easy! The pictures and toy drive will take place at Tannenbaum Farms, a scenic tree farm less than 15 minutes away from Lansing in Mason, MI. All the toys will be given to Unwrapped Imperfections, the aforementioned partner organization of "Toys For Photos".
