National Dog Day--
Did you know August 26 is National Dog Day? In my opinion, there's not much of a better reason to celebrate than for our furry friends. How will you celebrate?
You could buy your dog a new indestructible squeaky toy...although we know they'll all be destroyed anyway. You could spend a day at one of Houston's great dog parks playing fetch or frisbee. Maybe if you don't have a 4-legged friend yet, you could visit a rescue and save a life! Or you could do all of the above and put the cherry on top by having portraits made with your pup! Maybe I'm a bit biased, but who doesn't want to have a nice portrait with their pet?
One of my most prized possessions is a 30X40 Modern Art canvas of my husband and I with our three dogs hanging prominently in our living room. We even had it painted in the Masterpiece technique offered by Nicki Evans Photography. This portrait is more special now than when it was made, because since then, two of our dogs have passed away. Most of us will outlive our pets, but portraits that include them are something we can cherish for the rest of our lives.
To celebrate National Dog Day, Nicki Evans Photography will offer a special for all pet lovers. Make a donation of $25 to Rescue Bank Houston (or a rescue/shelter of your choice) and receive 2 free 5X7 prints of you and your dog from your upcoming portrait session. Just show a receipt from your donation to claim the special. This offer is good for sessions booked through Sept. 26, 2017.
For a little inspiration, here are a few portraits made last year of two sisters and their fur-brother in Sesquicentennial Park off of Buffalo Bayou.
To book your portrait session with Fido or Lassie or whoever your furry friend may be, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 409-267-1032. The special expires September 26, 2017.
