Photographer thanks law enforcement officials with free portraits

Beauty team, photographers provide free services to law enforcement on Saturday

SAN ANTONIO – A local photographer wanted to say thank you to those who put their lives on the line every day, so she spent her Saturday taking photos of the families of local law enforcement members for free.

Heather Roberts said she lives near the spot where San Antonio police officers Miguel Moreno and Julio Cavazos were shot last week. Moreno was buried Friday and Cavazos is recovering from his injuries and is out of the hospital.

Roberts wanted to do something to give back to them in her own way, so she gathered a team of volunteer photographers to take photos of dozens of families at San Pedro Library and Park.

There was even a beauty team on hand, doing free hair and makeup.

"I had the idea because I knew I needed to do something. I knew I wanted to give back. This wonderful community of officers, they give their lives every day,” Roberts said. “This is what I do full time, my photography, so I knew I wanted to help.”

Roberts said the response to the event has been positive and booked appointments for all of Saturday.
