For little it may seem, a good photograph can make us feel better, it can make us love ourselves a bit better and can show our beauty, our real beauty we sometimes neglect.

One of the sentences I always try to keep tattooed in my mind is that everybody deserves a good portrait.

It may seem very little and it won’t save the world, but I truly believe that small steps can make a change and making two people happier and more confident makes the world better, and those people can make four other people happier. Keep counting…

The community of Help-Portrait works again for this beautiful initiative: professional photographers working for people in need, taking photographs of them in a professional context, and giving them their prints.

Are you interested? You’ve got a date for December 10th. Check out their website, sign up and check if there’s a Help-Portrait community growing in your area, if not, start one!


About Emma Espejo

Graduated from English Philology in the University of Barcelona, I wanted to study a phd on Literature but ended dedicating my life to Photography. Full time teacher of English, and full time photographer (a passion can't be neglected). Working on my photography and making other people happy with my photographs makes me happy, as well as a good conversation, reading a good book and watching a good tv series. I'm a reader, dreamer, lover, photographer, writer, thinker... a little bit of everything.
