Free photo shoot for storm victims

NOT everyone is in a position to be able to give money or items to victims of the storm in Woodburn last month.

However, that hasn't stopped official Killer Whales photographer and owner of JadeCoral Photography, Jade King, of Evans Head, from offering what she is able to give free of charge.

"I've lived in Woodburn for five years and wanted to do something to try and bring a bit of cheer back to the families of Woodburn affected by the storm."

With that in mind, Ms King set up a Facebook event, inviting those affected by the storm to attend a free photo session on December 14.

"The normal price for a family portrait on location is approximately $150," she said. "The New Camera House, Lismore, is donating the free (5x7) prints to this good cause."

Ms King said six people had accepted her invitation so far but she wanted to get the word out to others who may be interested.

"Seeing as they may have lost so much in the storm, which could include their photographs, I wanted to give them a reminder of what's really important in this - family," she said.

"Some of these families may not be able to buy the Christmas presents they wanted this year so I'd like to offer a present to them."

The photo shoot will be 3-5.30pm at a location in Woodburn to be decided.
