Friday Fix - 6-27-2014 - Professional Photos

I am an amateur photographer who is always looking for new ways to raise funds for Colorado Puppy Rescue and have fun at the same time.

I found a fundraiser for another rescue where a professional photographer was donating all of the money paid for photo sessions to the rescue. I thought I would go check it out. I paid $75 for 1/2 hour session for my dog and myself. There was an option of $120 for an hour for multiple dogs/family members. What I found out after the session is that this photographer is charging a ton of money for the resulting photos and because I was only booked for 1/2 hour my dog didn't really have time to settle down. I bought an adorable pink pearl necklace and I had to ask over and over and over again to be able to put it on. To top it all off, I have to setup another session to "view" the resulting photos at the photographers studio.

I really want to do a photo session for Colorado Puppy Rescue, but would like to schedule hour long sessions (so we can have some fun) and include two digital or printed photos. All photos from the shoot would be available on the website and could be purchased separately. Would you be willing to pay $75 for a photo session with me? Let me know by leaving a comment or emailing me at! If I get enough interest I will work on getting it scheduled in August.

OK - onto other fun things. If you can't already tell, puppy/dog photos are my obsession lately. Everywhere I look I see photo props. One of my friends told me about a Groupon - of course I jumped on it.

Used it in a couple of photos this week and think it is going to be a great photo prop.

If you come across anything that would make a great prop for puppy photos, please let me know! I am constantly in search of capturing the perfect puppy photo. Here is my favorite from this week:

Have a great Friday and I look forward to hearing from you. If you ever want to take a look at all of our puppy photos, they are available along with our alumni and before/after photo albums. Please check them out at
