Giving Back: Suzie Wolf Photographs Military Families

Cary, NC – Suzie Wolf, a longtime contributing photographer for CaryCitizen, has partnered with the The PhotoImaging Manufacturers and Distributors Association (PMDA), USO, and Soldiers’ Angels to offer free photography for the families of deployed soldiers.

Portraits of Love

The program, called Portraits of Love, offers professional photography services to military families who have a loved one serving in the armed forces.

In conjunction with Fuji Film and other industry leaders, the program prints and mails a 5×7 color photo to the service person and family free of charge.

Photographers across the country volunteer their services to take these family portraits for this worthy project.

“I am thrilled to be able to volunteer my time to this wonderful program.  I have always wanted to do this but needed support in executing it,” said Suzie Wolf, owner of Suzie Wolf Photography.

“It’s such a wonderful way to support those in the armed forces and providing even a little joy during holidays.  I just want to bring a smile to someone’s face.”

Eligible families in the greater Cary metroplex can contact Suzie Wolf Photography directly.
