Thanks to the Bayview Opera House and First Exposures, low-income families are invited to sign up to get their free family portrait taken, including a free print and picture CD.  The event is sponsored by First Exposures, a youth photography-based mentoring program making a difference in the lives of underserved Bay Area youth. Mentees, supported by their adult mentors, will be the photographers at this event.  Please make a reservation here or contact my staffer Genesis Garcia at if you have questions.
