Adoption events in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and New York

Pet Month is rolling right along and we’ve had quite a few successful Meet & Greets already. This weekend, it’s time for our Chestnut Hill (previously Atrium), Rockingham Park, Eastview, and Trumbull studios to shine!



In case you haven’t heard, our studio in the Atrium Mall has closed and reopened across the street at Chestnut Hill:

If you usually come via Route 9 Eastbound, just take the turnaround immediately following the Atrium and Chestnut Hill will be your first exit on the right. If you follow Route 9 West, Chestnut Hill will be on your right. Atrium is on the corner of Route 9 (Boylston St) and Florence Street. Chestnut Hill is slightly east on the opposite side of Route 9.

Events in the Boston area

Two announcements today!

If you didn’t catch the last blog post, our adoptable pets MEET & GREET with the Norfolk County Humane Society is tomorrow night at our South Shore Plaza studio!

Come on out and support your local rescue effort! Meet orphaned pets who need a home and get information on the NCHS.

            

Next,
Atrium has moved!

We packed everything up this week and moved across the street to The Mall at Chestnut Hill!
We were closed the past few days, but reopen in our new location tomorrow. We’ll be right next to Papa Razzi on the upper level, just inside the north parking lot.
This means easier access to our studio!

Because Every Dad is a Hero

  
This year we decided to do something different for father’s day. In addition to offering these fabulous savings for Rewards Members, we wanted to encourage you to bring home a gift for the head of your household that’s both memorable and personal. We took inspiration from clients who have done it on their own in past portrait sessions: dress up like Daddy!

                                                        
So from now until the end of June, we’re hosting our first annual Bring Your Own Prop Contest. We encourage you to make it about Dad — bring in his clothing, accessories, tools, or any other item personal to his life story. This is a great idea for Grandpa too! If you have something else in mind, it doesn’t have to be dad-related.. any personal item brought from home will do. Include it in your portrait session from now until the end of June and your favorite image will be entered to win a $1,000 cash prize. Now that’s a great Father’s Day gift!


The first week in July, a panel of judges will narrow down one winner for each of our 10 studios. From the 10 runners up, a Grand Prize and Second Place Winner will be selected. All ten will receive prizes: Grand Prize Winner gets $1,000, Second Place gets $500, and the 8 remaining runners up get $100.  Entry forms can be filled at your portrait session or ahead of time (download below). Don’t forget to call ahead for an appointment!

With the excitement of our new studio opening in the Garden State Plaza and the bunny rush, we’ve fallen a bit behind on weekly pics wednesday… so hopefully this post will make up for lost cuteness! Here are some of our favorite captures from the past few weeks. It’s been a great spring so far! Don’t forget, Easter is Sunday but we have the bunnies for another week. Don’t miss your chance if you haven’t been in already!
