Ohio photographers shoot free portraits for Tuscaloosa storm victims

Two photographers who are members of the Cincinnati Fellowship of the Lens are in Tuscaloosa shooting family portraits for storms victims.

The idea was developed when one of those photographers, Holli Stevenson came to Tuscaloosa right after the April 2011 tornado.{} She was a volunteer search and rescue paramedic helping out.{} But Stevenson says she was touched as she stepped over so man ruined family photos.

"It broke my heart that there were just these pictures scattered through out the debris.{} And everywhere you step, you were stepping on someone's history," says Stevenson.

Stevenson vowed to return to Tuscaloosa and shoot free portraits for families who survived the storm.

She and her crew are taking the photos free of charge at Forest Lake Church through the Wings of Grace Program through Saturday.
