More than a dozen children at Miami Children’s Hospital benefited from a special activity presented by Barquin Photography, a professional photography studio in the Kendall area.
Barquin Photography hit the road on Monday, Feb. 6, to introduce Posh Portrait Parties, a unique concept that lets boys and girls play dress up, sing karaoke, work on arts and crafts and pose in front of the camera for their very own professional photo shoot. Patients ranging from the age of 10 months to 15 years enjoyed an afternoon filled with excitement that will never be forgotten.
Carlos Barquin, owner and professional photographer at Barquin Photography, created this event to offer families in the community an alternative to traditional birthday parties for kids, but now it’s also touching the lives of those that need it most.
“Seeing the expressions on the faces of these young kids was the most rewarding experience,” said Eli Barquin, marketing assistant and wife of Carlos Barquin. “We are proud to have been able to use Posh Portrait Parties to impact the lives of people in our community.”
Young girls also received a light makeup application, wore feather scarves and tutus and got their nails painted. The arts and crafts activity entailed decorating a picture frame to have as a keepsake of the Posh Portrait Party. At the end of the event, participants got a glimpse of their spectacular photos.
“Thanks to Miami Children’s Hospital for granting us this wonderful opportunity.” Carlos Barquin said. “As a family and children photographer, being able to capture such magical moments and uplift the spirits of these boys and girls was phenomenal. It truly helped them forget about their illnesses for a day and dream big.”
