Vacation photos benefit First Coast Cultural Center

This year’s First Coast Cultural Center holiday fundraiser will feature family and individual photos by Osmeri Mancebo, an Orange Park-based photographer who specializes in portrait photography and crafts backgrounds and decorations for the holidays.

Photoshoots will include a variety of packages for up to five attendees in a staged photoshoot, including a choice of set designs, photo shoots, digital and broadcast images for personal use and holiday cards, gifts and more. Prices range from $299 to $449 and $25 for each additional person in the shoot.

According to Donna Guzzo, executive director of the First Coast Cultural Center, Osmeri is known for her style of shooting in a natural, relaxed environment, and her focus on letting the story of the family or individual unfold in front of the camera.

The photoshoots will benefit First Coast Cultural Center‘s educational programs for children.

“I’m super excited to be part of this amazing project,” Mancebo said. “As a local photographer and artist, I have a particular interest in supporting the First Coast Cultural Center, as I strongly believe it makes a huge difference in our community, especially with children. This fundraiser brings me personal happiness and gratitude.
