Put your Paws in the Air- Our Pet Photo Contest is Here!

Put your Paws in the Air- Our Pet Photo Contest is Here!

It’s that time of year again, when cute furry faces grace our studio. Yes, our Annual Pet Photo Contest is here! Charleen created this contest as an ode to their family dog, Ruger. Thanksgiving Day of 2012 he wandered off. They looked everywhere for him and spent hours searching, going to houses and trying the shelter. At the time however, they were not open. The following day they went back to the shelter to find Ruger was taken there almost immediately after wandering off and was placed inside to keep warm. When they picked him up they were amazed at how many animals there were. Though she couldn’t adopt another animal at the time, Charleen decided she wanted to find a way to show support. Since the day Ruger introduced us to our local shelter in 2012 he revisited, two more times in 2013 and 2014, both times on Thanksgiving Day. Go figure. We think it’s because he can smell all the good cooking going on everywhere. Though we lost our beautiful Ruger in March 2015 we have continued to run our contest every year.

This year we are will be working with ECCR. For more information about them or dogs who are looking for forever homes check out their website: ECCR

Charleen's Portrait Studio

I believe family portraits have an important role in building family history. They are a gift you give yourself, your children and generations to come. Beautiful portaits are not expensive… they’re priceless!
