SMILE for a Cure with Fetching Images Photography!
Posted Aug 21 2011 12:37pm
Our amazing friend and contributor, Mel Hammonds from Fetching Images Photography is participating in this great cause to help fight cancer! Following is more information from Mel's Blog :
"Fetching Images is pleased to be a part of a group of pet photographers for the Smile For A Cure pet portrait charity. This year during the months of August and September, session fees will be donated to the National Canine Cancer Foundation in an effort to find a cure for this devastating illness. 1 in 3 dogs is afflicted with cancer, and of those, 50% die. For those of us who have lost a beloved dog in this way, we know how heart wrenching it is. Much of the research and subsequent treatments that are developed are oftentimes applicable to human cancers, as well. Just last month, I lost a sister after a 3-1/2- year-long battle with cancer; therefore, I am doubly motivated to help further the cause.
If you’d like to contribute to this cause and come away with high quality artistic images of your pet(s), please contact me at email@example.com or through the contact form on this blog in order to schedule a session and learn more about a Fetching Images photo shoot experience. Remember, your session fee will be tax deductible as you donate directly to Smile For A Cure through a secure page on their website. All photographic products are sold separately.
If you do not live in the Houston area, you can learn about other participating photographers close to you on the Smile For A Cure website.
If you are interested in a photography session for a pet who has been diagnosed with cancer, I will work with you closely to find the right time and location in which to best honor your companion and provide lasting memories. Fetching Images offers a Pink Paw Package for these special situations.
I’d like to extend a huge thanks to Nunthany Johnson for establishing this foundation! Check her website for beautiful images and additional background on Smile For A Cure.
If you’d like to know more about my personal motivation behind supporting this cause, please see my post entitled http://www.fetchingimagesblog.com/auld-lang-syne/ and meet Trader. Miss my sister and him each and every day. I am sure they are both once again enjoying long, pain free walks and filet mignon."
