Families snapped for flood appeal

TWEED parents and their children are being offered family portraits at a special price to raise funds for the Queensland flood appeal.

Kathy Booth, a local resident whose normal work is taking baby photos in Queensland, said it was her way of doing something locally to help flood victims.

She donated her time taking the photos at the Murwillumbah Retravision store on Thursday from 9am-noon, did the same yesterday and will be back this morning in her bid to raise funds for the flood appeal.

Ms Booth, who runs Funtime Photos specialising in baby, children and family studio photos, said customers were being asked to pay $14, $10 of which goes to the flood appeal, with the other $4 covering costs.

She said the size of the enlargement being offered was “a very generous 11 inches by 13 inches”, which her photo lab was also subsidising.

“People have the choice of one of five poses shot on the day to be their enlargement,” she said.

“No appointment is needed.”

Ms Booth, a locally born photographer , said she normally specialised in studio portraits.
