Canadian photographers gave deserving families something to smile about this holiday season, donating their time to snap some portraits free of charge.

In its fifth straight year, Help-Portrait Toronto set up at the Davenport-Perth Neighbourhood and Community Health Centre for the photo shoots.

Patsy Warren and daughter Bethany, both dressed in matching red outfits, sat down for their first ever family portrait.

"It's the first family photo taken especially for grandparents in back home in Grenada," said Patsy.

The Warrens were just one of nearly two hundred families, single people and seniors who came out Saturday.

Photographer Joseph Amaral was one of the dozens of volunteers who gave their time to make it all possible.

"I've done very well in this business and I just want to give back as much as I can," he said.
