Sussex County photographers, friends, family and members of Coastal Camera Club joined forces Dec. 7 for the fifth annual Help Portrait at Delaware Technical Community College.

Setting up four studios in the student center, volunteers provided family portraits to families who otherwise could not have portraits made. Coordinator Keith Mosher said more than 190 individuals were photographed and more than 250, 5-by-7-inch prints were produced. Each family received a framed print of their portrait.

Volunteers also provided hair and make-up sessions for all who wanted it.
