ONE of Waterford’s most renowned photographers, Leo Murphy, and his son David, who is a rising star of the industry, are now taking bookings for Happy Faces 2016. The brilliant charity initiative, which Leo and David have been involved with since it started in 2006, generates a considerable amount of money for each year’s chosen beneficiary. For a donation of €25, people can receive a desktop portrait of their happy smiling child and every penny will go to the chosen beneficiary, which this year is Down Syndrome (Waterford and South Kilkenny Branch).

All the expenses and costs are being covered by the studio and Leo and David are now taking bookings through their Facebook page "Leo Murphy Photography” and "David Murphy Studio” and through the studio at 051-872539. The event will take place from Tuesday April 17th up until Saturday the 21st of April, so make sure you book today to avoid disappointment.

"This is a great and worthy event, which we have always been delighted to be a part of,” Leo said. "We’d like to thank all of the people who have donated in the past and we’re looking forward to seeing some old, as well as new faces this Friday.

This year’s benefactor, Down Syndrome Ireland, Waterford and South Kilkenny Branch is a support group for families of people with Down Syndrome. They work with people of all ages, to help them to reach their full potential by providing information and support to themselves, their families and their carers. They strive to facilitate and support a variety of social, educational and life enhancing activities for their members with Down Syndrome, as well as providing financial support for members wishing to access speech therapy, occupational therapy and other various therapies.
