Celebrating Adoption session by Shelly Keefe Photography

Welcome to Shutter Mission

Portrait charities have brought comfort, peace, and joy to countless lives around the world, and yet, there are many deserving families and individuals who aren’t aware these unique services exist. Our goal is simple — to spread the word about these amazing organizations and the photographers who serve them. In doing so, we hope to inspire others to give back in their communities.

Our Mission

“To highlight portrait charities and support photographers who give their time, talent, and heart.”

Spread the Word!
