My family had two dogs when I was a child. Their names were Tippy and Princess. I remember Tippy running up to me everyday after I got off the school bus. He would blanket me with unshakable love and devotion. Princess was always the tiny, cute and lovable creature that slowly lurked up to you on the couch. It was like that every day until Tippy did not run up to me after I got off the bus one afternoon. Princess grew old and was no longer there to cuddle on the couch with anymore. These were the first two pets to enter my world and I was a pet lover ever-since.
These pets were loved and cherished. I cried for days when they passed. Looking back on these memories from my childhood, I really wished I had a portrait of them on my wall. I can barely remember the whiskers on Princess's face and only remember Tippy as a lovable dog with patchy white and black fur. Seeing their faces again would mean so much and would rekindle colorful memories. (I love you guys! I hope your loving doggy Heaven!)
TWO To keep things manageable we are only able to do 1 pet per portrait. You can purchase a portrait for each of your pets and bring one in at a time.
ONE Please come into the studio without your pet(s) to check in. We need to know what type of animal you have and keep the area safe for every person/pet involved.
THREE Plan for about ten minutes for your pet & bring any snacks or toys that will help them to be attentive and happy!
To keep the Pet Portraits running smoothly, please see the below guidelines...
