Pardon our Dust!

 The roofers are coming! After several years of waiting, the roofers are going to be tearing off and replacing our shop's roof in time for fall/winter! We have tarped our shop, and are eagerly awaiting the new roof. We intend on being open Wed-Friday when the construction happens, but if they make us close our doors we will still be available by phone and for onsite appointments.

When one of our clients does something this amazing, we have to share it. Please feel free to forward this to anyone and everyone who would want to take part.

A powerful photograph can become a window to our soul; containing a treasure-chest of memories and an entry to our past, present and future. For individuals affected by cancer, as well as their family members, a photograph can become so much more. Sometimes, a photograph becomes hope.

In an effort to help raise funds for cancer patients and their families, Cantrell Portrait Design has teamed up with the international non-profit group, Cancer Support Community (CSC). CSC offers programs and services which enable cancer patients and their families to manage their treatment and recovery as effectively as possible. Support services including education, counseling and healthy lifestyle programs are available to anyone affected by cancer and there is never a cost to participate. The CSC aims to ensure that no one has to face cancer alone.

Due to popular demand Cantrell Portrait Design will be adding Saturday September 29 to create family portraits at our Benicia studio. For a donation of just $99.00 or more to The Cancer Support Community, you will receive a complimentary studio family portrait session along with two 5x7 prints from the same pose, valued at $320.00. This is a great opportunity to capture the charm of your family and help an extraordinary cause at the same time.

To schedule your portrait session and pledge your donation, please call us today at 925-934-1994 or email Michael at michael@cantrellportrait.com. Thank you for your support.


Feel free to pass this along to anyone else that you feel would like to be involved with this opportunity.
