I'm so happy to announce I'll be back to Barkfield Road for holiday pet photo mini sessions on 11/11 and 11/18 this year. We had such a high demand for our planned date on the 18th that we added a second day the week before. As of 11/3, the 11/18 date is fully booked but there are a few slots left for the 11/11 date.
A portion of proceeds from the event will be going to the Dotty Fund. They provide financial assistance to families who need help paying for their pets’ medical care, so that animals are able to stay in their owner's care and not end up in shelters.
Half hour mini sessions are a $25 sitting fee, which will be waived if you order over $25 of photo products. 4x6 prints will be $10, 5x7s will be $15 and 8x10s will be $20. I’ll also be offering holiday, Christmas and Hanukkah cards in packs of 25 for $40. Metal ornaments will be $35 and image cubes will be $50. There will be new props this year for Christmas, Hanukkah and just winter themed shots. You're welcome to join in the photos with pets, but space is limited, so huge group shots may not be possible!
Products will take about 2 weeks to come in for pickup at Barkfield Road. Can't wait to see all the beautiful furry faces!

I was back at the Middle Country Public Library for another pet portrait program this year! We held our event in their beautiful outdoor Nature Explorium again. This space is so great for this program because there are lots of different spots all over the explorium for patrons to choose from. Also, it's completely fenced in, so pets are free to shed their crates, leashes and harnesses and roam the area! Many of the families who come to this program have been back year after year and it's always so great to see that. I was also happy to see a lot of new faces this year too!
Many times when I do this program at libraries, people assume you can only bring dogs, but all pets are welcome! This year we got mostly dogs, but also a cat and a turtle who showed up (the turtle is fiercely private and didn't sign a model release, so you won't find him in the slideshow, sorry)! Our biggest this year was a huge Great Dane and our smallest a tiny Chihuahua. It's always such a great time when I'm able to do these programs because I get to be surrounded by adorable animals all day.
All families who came to the program got a free 8x10 and an email with the digital files of the photos we got. Thank you to all the families who brought their pets, thank you to the Middle Country Public Library for having me and especially to librarian Sara Fade who was the one who first asked me all those years ago to do this program! Ever since then, I've added more libraries to my list every year and it's become one of my favorite things I do in my business. If you'd like to see a program like this at your local library, send them this link and tell them to get in touch!
Here are some of the awesome shots we got at the pet portrait program this year!
