Three Mission-based family photographers have given the Christmas Bureau a welcome financial boost.

On November 20, Megan Faber Photography, Alan Bailward Photography and Athena Leskun Photography donated a day of their time to photograph close to 50 families for their Christmas Family Portraits in the Park event. The purpose of this event was to raise money for the Mission Christmas Bureau.

The photographers charged families $25 dollars for their session which included one photo and the option to purchase additional images.

The photo team handed over approximately 2,300 images to their clients and managed to raise $3,655 from the event.

“This is the first year we’ve come up with the idea for the event. Our initial goal when we started was to raise at least $1,500. We’ve exceeded that and then some and are already planning next year’s event,” said Faber.
