As many of you know, I have been volunteering at BARCS since early March of this year, spending nearly every weekend since then down at the shelter photographing adoptable dogs.  I’ve gotten great feedback about my work with BARCS and I do hope that in some small way, my photos are making a difference and helping at least some of these dogs find their forever home.  My work at BARCS is very important to me and I want to be able to give back to them as much as possible.  The dogs truly deserve it.  Therefore, I am so very excited to announce that I will be offering custom pet photography mini sessions at this year’s BARCStoberfest event!  A large portion of the mini session fee will be donated back to BARCS to help care for the many homeless animals they take in each year.

Here’s the deal –  each 15 minute mini session time slot is $20.  Humans are more than welcome to be in the photos with their animals.  Included in your mini session fee is one 5×7 print which will be chosen by the photographer (me) and mailed to you following the event.  If you have multiple animals and want to book only one mini session time slot, that is fine – just be aware that I cannot guarantee that I will be able to get that one great image of multiple pets in such a short time frame.  I’ll do my best, but I’m not magic :)  If you have multiple animals and you want individual photos of each, please either book multiple mini sessions or be prepared to purchase additional images after the event.  If you would like to purchase additional images/products from your mini session (over and above the one 5×7 print you receive) you are more than welcome to do so at my regular prices.  Gift prints (size 8×12 and smaller) start at $40.  If you are interested in purchasing additional prints + products, just let me know ahead of time and I’ll be sure to edit all of your mini session images and prepare an online gallery for you to view after the event is over.

I will be pre-booking mini sessions before the event.  If you are interested in booking a mini session for BARCStoberfest, please email me at  Sessions will start at 11am and the last session will be at 3:45pm.  I will also try my best to squeeze in as many people as I can during the event, for those that do not pre-register.  Mini session clients will be required to sign my model/property release before their session(s), which allows me to retain the copyright to all of my images and to use them for my own personal use in marketing materials, blog posts, website galleries, etc.  Payment for the mini sessions can be made by cash or personal check (made out to Dana Cubbage Photography) and payment is due before the mini session starts on the day of the event.  If you have any questions about these mini sessions, please let me know.  Book your mini session today and let your pet be the star!
