Earlier in the month, I donated a basket to the Loudoun County Humane Society’s Fall Fundraiser event. The basket would be given to a raffle winner at the event.
I had never put together a basket before – even for a holiday party gift – so I was a little daunted by the task. I couldn’t attend the event because of some prior appointments, but I wanted to make a killer basket. The goal was to promote my business, so I decided to set up the perfect fall puppy photoshoot. Treats – a must during any pet session. A squeaky toy – when you need to grab Fido’s attention. A 5×7 picture frame for your favorite photo from the shoot, and inside the frame, a certificate for a fall mini session at Manassas Battlefield.
I have to say – this was probably the most fun I’ve ever had donating. Goodwill runs have nothing on spending 30 minutes on a Saturday morning photographing three adorable dachshunds.
My face turned a nice shade of pomegranate red when Kim told me that she was so excited about this basket/session that she put all of her raffle tickets in for it. I couldn’t have been more flattered.
Kim and her husband and their three pups are such a cute fur-family. These dapper pups had on their best holiday outfits for their shoot, and you may well see them on a holiday card this season! Congrats, Kim!
