CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

House of Hope hosted an event in Cape Girardeau, Missouri on Saturday for many that would mark this day as picture perfect.

Help Portraits helped hundreds of people take professional photos of them and their families for free.

This gave people an opportunity they normally wouldn't have to get a picture of them at their finest to remember.

Upon arrival, people were greeted with dozens of volunteers ready to make their day as perfect as possible.

Volunteers include professional hair and make up, photographers, editors, and more. People got their haircut, makeup, and took a great picture with their self and with their loved ones.

After getting their picture taken, they were welcomed to wait with an assortment of food, games and music. During that time, their photos were edited to perfection and delivered to them.

Heartland News was on hand to see first impressions of people upon getting their professional photos. Many faces were joyous and happy while others were shocked with enjoyment.

One woman we spoke with says this was her first year sober and wanted to reward herself with a portrait.

She says this picture will help remind her in the future of how beautiful she is and hopes that will help her remain sober for years to come.

Other people we spoke with says with the economy still rough, this was a great way to make a lasting memory.
