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!!
