Portraits of Love
Launched in 2009 by the PhotoImaging Manufacturers & Distributors Association, Portraits of Love’s original mission was to send family portraits to deployed soldiers. Now branded under the Imaging Alliance Portraits of Love, the program continues to give back by creating forever lasting memories. Further, the program has partnered with the USO over the last six years. As a result, it extended its reach to even more military families.
Moreover, in 2017, the Imaging Alliance welcomed retail members. These retailers now foster the growth of the program by hosting families in their stores. These retailers provide all the resources needed to deliver the highest standard of service. Families receive free prints either on-site or posted shoots along with full rights to their photos taken by talented photographers.
