Smiles Are Free


"Smiles are Free" is a non-profit organization that provides and organizes "free" family portrait sessions for families that might be struggling due to economy, illness or circumstance. It has been positively received for those on both sides of the camera. By using the artistic skills of our volunteers, family foundations can be celebrated using family portraits.

Past events: Harlem YMCA, Broadway Housing, and Hamilton Madison House.

Smiles Are Free is a proud recipient of the Andrew Heiskell Community Service Award. Time Warner's annual award to employees who have made exceptional contributions to public service. This prestigious award began in 1982 in honor of the late Andrew Heiskell, the former Chairman and CEO of Time Inc.
