Once again, it’s time to gather precious pets together for a trip to the Tri-County Humane Society to get festive family portraits taken for the holiday season.
The 28th annual “Santa Paws” holiday portrait sessions will take place Nov. 22-24. It is one of the society’s main yearly fundraisers, with 100 percent of all proceeds going to help fund its volunteer needs. For $35, people will get five professional, high-resolution digital photos on one CD. The photos can be edited at home and emailed to friends or family, or they can be made into greeting cards.
The photos can be taken with people and/or pets, with or without Santa. Large groups can also be accommodated. The set design for the portraits is of a vintage living-room scene with deep reds, greens and browns. All photos are taken at the Tri-County Humane Society at 735 8th St. NE, St. Cloud.
Professional photographers donate time and talents to take the photos. They are Lisa Crayford and Brian Leither of Country Gallery Photography and Sue Dropp of Dropp’s Unique Portrait Design. The Camera Shop also donated CDs for the digital proofs and offers a 20-percent discount on Santa Paws holiday cards.
It is best to make a Santa Paws portrait appointment as early as possible. Call 320-252-0896.
