there aren’t many things we love more than taking photos at gillette portrait arts – but we are all animal lovers and we all have dogs who we love madly! raye’s dogs booker and sampson will be hanging out with the girls at the studio once she and kristie start working down at the new space full time. we all also are aware that not all dogs are lucky enough to have found loving homes and hence our first dog days event was born! paws for a cause is a series of mini-sessions held on may 28th and 29th featuring your best friend. because the studio is right next to the pocomoke river, you will have your choice of in-studio or riverside portraits of your dog. sessions are 25 minutes, include the sitting fee, and online gallery and 1 8×10 – all for only $50! half of which will go directly to the wicomico county humane society – so if we book up all of the sessions, the WCHS will get a $750 donation to help them find homes for someone’s new best friend!

to book your session, just email us at rayevalion@gilletteportraitarts.comand let us know what time you’d like – we’re shooting from 9:00-4:00 on both saturday and sunday in half hour blocks. also let us know if you’d like in-studio or outdoor portraits done. helpful info like the size of your dog and any behavioral tips would be much appreciated as well (for example if they do not play well with others we will make sure the studio is dog free when they arrive) we will have attention-getting toys and treats but if your good boy/girl has something that they LOVE, feel free to bring it with you

we are super excited to be working with the humane society and hope that this will be one of many future events to benefit our furry family members. if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us!!

beautiful day, beautiful venue and beautiful couple – all of the makings for an amazing wedding day! when I first met katherine and lawrence they went all through their plans on wedding day and just envisioning it from their description had me so excited – so as I was driving to baltimore I could not wait. going into the baltimore country club, every detail was so pretty and special and once I met up with katherine and her girls, the air was electric! katherine just lights up a room with happiness and she easily had one of the prettiest wedding gowns that I’ve ever seen -  it set the tone for all of the decor and special touches. after spending some time with the ladies, I tracked lawrence and his guys and knew that this whole day would be filled with laughter – they were cracking me up! a lot of personal details were included in making this day extra special – katherine lost her father several years ago so they planned the wedding to take place on his birthday – she also wore the veil that her mother had worn on her wedding day – katherine knew a part of her dad would be walking with her down the aisle to lawrence.

katherine and lawrence – I had so much fun with you, your friends and families. the day was so special and it was the perfect way to kick off my 2011 summer season.I can’t wait to see you both again soon!
