The Story

The Story

Operation Smile provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children around the globe. It is a wonderful charity that is able to make a HUGE difference in a child's life. The Professional Photographers of America have teamed up with Operation Smile to present the Celebration of Smiles.

Since 1982, Operation Smile — through the help of dedicated medical volunteers — has provided 200,000 free surgeries for children and young adults born with facial deformities. Our work creates a lasting global impact. We train local doctors in developing countries and strengthen healthcare systems so more children in some of the poorest areas in the world can be treated.


$250 can help provide a cleft lip or cleft palate surgery. This surgery can change a child's life forever and can take as few as 45 minutes. We will be offering mini portrait sessions at The Westwood School in Dallas on Tuesday, April 25 for a special price of $25. We will take all the proceeds from the day and donate them to Operation Smile. For every 10 sessions we do, one child's life will be forever changed! To show our appreciation, you will get a retouched digital file to print or share online! 

If you will be in the Dallas area on April 19th, be sure to stop by The Westwood School at 14340 Proton - just off Spring Valley and Midway.


If you are not in Dallas- or you are busy on that Wednesday - you are still in luck! We setup this page for people who couldn't make it to the event- but still wanted to help. You can contribute in two ways: First off, we would appreciate any donation you can make toward our goal.  If you are making a donation:

$25 -  A portion of a smile
$125 - Half a smile
$250 - I'll fix a WHOLE smile by myself!
$500 - Call me Superman - I'm bringing beautiful smiles to TWO kids!!!

Also, if you can share this page with your friends and help us spread the word- that would be awesome as well!

Over the past few years my fellow friend and Westwood Alum, Dean Lourcey, raised enough money to fix dozens and dozens of smiles!  I have eagerly taken over the reigns and have set my sights on 20 smiles. 

I realize it is a very lofty goal, but we are hoping you will help us reach it. That would definitely make ME smile!

Thanks for your support!
