Autism Society of Mahoning Valley to Host Family Portrait Event

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The Autism Society of Mahoning Valley is accepting reservations for its 11th annual Family Portrait Session event for families with disabilities.

The sessions will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 14 at The Kinsman House near Courthouse Square in downtown Warren.

“The harsh flashing and controlled environment of typical studios, combined with unprepared photographers, is often impossible to overcome,” said Robin Suzelis, director of the Autism Society of Mahoning Valley. “This has made it exceedingly difficult for our families to have a quality family picture taken. We have found that by creating a liberal, open setting, these family mementos can be created and cherished for years to come.”

Participating families will receive a sitting, choice of a 5-by-7 photo and an edited, professional-level image for unrestricted personal use and reproduction.

The cost is $15, and preregistration is required; click HERE
