We all love and adore our pets, in fact, most people consider them to be a member of the family. We dress them up for Halloween, celebrate their birthdays, and some pets even have their own social media accounts!
To celebrate the special bond between pets and their owners as well as show our thanks and appreciation to our community, we hosted a Pet Portrait Event. Pet owners received a free pet portrait session as well as free images. With most homes having a wall adorned with family photos and pictures of the kids/grandkids, shouldn’t Fido’s pictures be up there too?!
With the help of our good friend and professional photographer, Samantha Jacoby, it was a fun filled morning for pets and owners alike. Coffee and continental breakfast was provided for the humans while the four legged friends received their own special goodie bags. We also raffled off some fabulous prizes.
Samantha was amazing at capturing each animals’s unique character. While some loved the opportunity to be in the spotlight, others were a tad more hesitant and reserved. For the later of the bunch, Samantha was able to quickly put them at ease and earn their trust with a talent we never knew she had…dog sound effects!
A fun and unexpected highlight was meeting a tortoise and his babies along with a bearded dragon. Reptiles need portraits too!
We had such a blast seeing new and familiar faces in the community and meeting their furry/hard shelled/bearded family members too! Check out some of the adorable photos from the day!
