Local photographers Jesse Inskeep and Jeff Wros joins World-Wide Movement Help-Portrait in providing free professionally done portraits for those in need.

During the month of December, photographers from across the world will use their skills to give
back to their local community. It's a movement called Help-Portrait, and local photographers
Jesse Inskeep and Jeff Wros are joining the movement to serve the Quad Cities on December
1st.
Help-Portrait's purpose is simple: grab your camera, find people in need, take their picture, and
give them the prints free-of-charge.
"I have very few photographs from when I was growing up as my family didn't have the time or
money to make it a priority," says Inskeep. "Now that I'm older and especially now that I have a
daughter, it makes me sad that she's not able to see portraits of what I looked like when I was
her age. My hope is that those who come to Help-Portrait will leave with something they'll
treasure for generations."
Last year Inskeep and Wros participated in Help-Portrait for the first time and were able to give
nearly 30 families professionally-done portraits. This year they're hoping to do even more. And
this year, like last, will include a team of hairstylists and makeup artists at the event to make
sure each person getting their picture taken looks their best.
Help-Portrait will be hosted by Connection, a church in Bettendorf. Connection has helped
Inskeep and Wros spread the word by promoting the event at Connection's Food Pantry and
reaching out to local shelters. "The Holidays can be tough for many; our hope in hosting Help-
Portrait is to help those going through a tough time feel beautiful and valuable," says Jason
Holtgrewe, one of Connection's pastors.
Those interested in coming to Help-Portrait can reserve their time-slot by calling 309.524.5024.
Help-Portrait takes place at Connection on December 1st from 12-4 p.m. Connection is located at
4374 State Street, Suite 2, Bettendorf, IA 52722 and can be contacted by calling 563.355.0919
or by emailing annelyse@inskeep-photography.com.
