2017 Deck The Paws Mini Sessions! November 12, 2017 by Meghan Lee ArtistryIt’s getting to be that time of year where we are thinking about gifting, celebrating with family and friends and giving back. I’m super excited to be partnering with Posh Pooch of Woodbury and Animal Ark of Hastings! We are making spirits bright and bringing you Deck The Paws Mini Sessions. A perfect holiday set for you to update your kiddos portraits as well as your beloved fur babies too! I’ve always had love for animals, from growing up on a hobby farm and running with lambs to my most current kiddos, Torque (Chihuahua) and Dickens (chocolate siamese mix). Before I had an actual human child 😉 my animals were my kids. They are family why not incorporate them in this years holiday portraits! (These are my kids 🙂 These mini sessions are going to help give back to an organization that helps rescue, rehabilitate and rehouse animals and my friends at Animal Ark do just that. Did you know the average cost of care for a healthy animal is $600. Can you image an animal that is sick or needs special medical attention? Okay okay so what is the mini session and how does it help the animals? This mini session is a 20 minute portrait session catered to capturing and updating your kiddos portraits as well as your pets. Don’t have kids…but I’m obsessed with my pet, no problem bring them in. Don’t have pets but love animals and want updates of your kiddo, it’s still a fit. Portraits are the perfect little stocking stuffers for nana, aunties and for your families tree. Session fees are being donated to the Animal Ark of Hastings, that’s right…EVERY PENNY. Not only will you be giving back this holiday season and helping animals in need with medical, special and behavioral needs but you’ll also receive a beautiful custom metal ornament with your portrait session, new treats to try for your pup and a jolly good time at the studio. The studio is providing beverages, snacks and a pet friendly place. Located at Meghan’s in-home studio, 8200 Harkness Rd. S in Cottage Grove (directly behind HyVee). So why not give back and receive a beautiful piece of art that just happens to be your family? There will be lots of other special portrait goodies on display for you to look through if you are wanting more than what’s included in your session.
