Besides actually being behind the camera, one of my favorite things to do in my business is to get involved with local organizations, network and partner with other businesses. I truly believe that I have been given a gift, the gift of brightening others lives with my art (and occasionally making my clients shed of tear or two of joy). There are many other things in my life that I have been blessed with and I never want to take any of my blessings for granted. I try to remain humble and very heart centered. One of the many ways that I try to stay heart centered is to gift nonprofits certificates for auctions for large events, such as gals and balls. Most, but not all, of these organizations are pet related. These galas and balls are typically their largest fundraising events of the year where they generate the largest donations to help fund their organization. If you are not aware of these great events, please check them out. The following are events all around the Cleveland, Ohio and Akron, Ohio area; G.R.I.N Gala, Lakewood Women's Club (Women Honoring Women), Pawsibilities Ball (Summit Humane), PAWS Ohio, and many more. I am constantly looking for great organizations to make these sort of donations to, so should you know of one, please feel free to contact me through my website!
Another pet related service that I am passionate about that I provide in the Cleveland and Akron, Ohio areas is to rescue groups. I offer all Northeast Ohio rescue groups to contact me should they have a pet that maybe hard to place into a new home. Sometimes a great studio image, showcasing the pets personality, is the icing on the cake that leads them to their furever home. Are you a member of a rescue group that would benefit from my services, please feel free to contact me. I offer this service at no charge to the organization and the digital image will be supplied to the organization without my business logo.
One of the things I find myself saying over and over again, is that although I cannot foster a pet (not for the lack of wanting to), I CAN help by doing all these different, "out of the box" ideas. One of the largest and most successful volunteer opportunities I have had is holding portrait fundraising events for our Northeast Ohio 501(c)3's. This is the ONLY time I offer limited edition session (aka "mini-sessions") throughout the year. These limited edition session are a great time to test out my services and offerings. In a nutshell, these session are a sampling of my services. They include a shorter in studio session with one, sometimes two scenes or backdrops, limited number of subjects, but do include my full high touch, boutique service.
Let me answer that question that just ran through you head...what does boutique mean? Most folks think of a boutique as a clothing or gift giving type of retail establishment. But here at Pixure This! Photo Studio and Nothing But Nub Pet Photography by Pixure This! Photo Studio, I take this to the extreme! Not only can you get great portraits gifts not readily available on a consumer level, but you get service that is way beyond top notch! Some of these serves include a pre-session consultation to plan you session to the final deTAIL, a preview and ordering appointment where you will view a slideshow presentation set to music followed by reviewing each image one by one. I am with you every step of the way to help guide you in your final portrait purchase of the loves of your life! Gone are the days of meeting the photographer for the first time the day of the session and then never seeing said photographer again. Here at Pixure This! Photo Studio in Broadview Height, Ohio, you will receive the best portrait experience...period!
With that being said, stay tuned for our upcoming portrait fundraiser for G.R.I.N. (Golden Retrievers In Need) on Saturday, September 28, 2019 where we are planning for BOTH fall AND Christmas themed limited edition sessions. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to have family and pet portraits captured, secure early bird holiday shopping, create beautiful custom holiday cards and help out one of Northeast Ohio's great and well deserving non-profit organizations. We are working on all of the deTAILS and will fill you in once they become available, but for the time being, save the date. This is going to be a once in a lifetime fundraising event!
