Holiday Pop Up Pet Portrait Sessions at CB2 Soho!

I was honored to partner with CB2 Soho for another pet portrait day, this time with some holiday flair and LOTS more dogs!

Cover photo model: Tibby!

Our first pet portrait day in April was a huge success with a special appearance by celebridog Wally the Welsh Corgi, a very happy adoption match between the founder of maison de pawZ and teeny chihuahua Marcel (formerly Eddie from Friends with Four Paws), and best of all, we raised $3400 for Foster Dogs, Inc.!

After the success of the April event with 17 dogs coming through the store for their professional pet portraits, I was expecting 25-30 dogs for the Holiday Pet Portrait Day. Imagine my surprise when I took a break from shooting photos and turned around to see a whole crowd of dogs and dog lovers waiting behind me!

I fell in love with each of the 57 dogs I photographed that day so I couldn’t possibly pick a favorite. Instead I have decided to recognize each dog’s unique star qualities in the first ever NYC Pet Photographer Awwwwards!

Couldn’t make it to this event?
