Pictures at the park raise funds for Mission Christmas Bureau

On Sunday, Nov. 20, photographers will be at Fraser River Heritage Park taking family portraits for a $25 donation.

Three local photographers have joined forces to create a fundraiser benefiting the Mission  Christmas Bureau.

Megan Faber Photography, Alan Bailward Photography and Athena Leskun Photography are presenting Christmas Family Portraits in the Park.

On Sunday, Nov. 20, photographers will be at Fraser River Heritage Park taking family portraits. For a $25 donation to the Christmas Bureau, a family will receive a 15 minute session with a photographer and one digital image. Images can be viewed via an online gallery and one image can be chosen with the option purchase more if wanted.

Organizers ask that people book in advance as only a limited amount of families can be accepted.

Bookings can be made by contacting or via facebook messenger at

So far they have raised $800, but the goal is to hit between $1,500 and $2,000.
