Have you ever wanted to have a family portrait taken with your beloved pet? “Portraits With Pets” is an opportunity to have portraits taken of—and with—your pets. The entire $50 session fee (regular price is $100) from each photo session will be donated to MARS (Midwest Animal Rescue & Services). These hour long sessions will take place the following two weekends in September:

September 11 and 12 from 9 am–5 pm at Oak Hill Park in St. Louis Park.

September 18 and 19 from 9 am–5 pm at Lake Harriet.

All sessions need to be reserved in advance. Sessions are on a first call, first reserve basis. So call today to reserve your session—612-382-2867. For your convenience, your portraits will be available for online ordering.

October is Family Portrait Month

Monday, October 5th, 2009

They say it’s better to give than to receive. Why not do both?

Enjoy giving and receiving in October during Family Portrait Month. For every family session booked, we’ll give a $50 donation to Operation Smile and you’ll receive $50 off your session.

Two additional ways to save:

1. Dine at Vescio’s. Since we’re celebrating families this month, what better way to enjoy yours than to share a meal together. Save an additional $25 when you eat at Vescio’s restaurant in October (St. Louis Park location). Just bring us your receipt!

2. Tell a friend. Family Portrait month is a great deal (and a good cause). So shout it from the rooftops! Tell all your friends, family and co-workers. For every referral who becomes a customer, you’ll be rewarded with a $35 credit at the studio.

First, on behalf of the Golden Valley Humane Society, Jesse Valley Photography wants to thank everyone who participated in “Pics with Your Pooch” at Oak Hill Park in St. Louis Park—I know that your donations are very much appreciated. Lisa and I had a blast taking photos of the dogs and families—I always love puppy action shots!

We had so much fun photographing Spring portraits! For these sessions, we asked people to bring food donations for STEP in St. Louis Park, MN. We’d like to send out a big THANK YOU to everyone who attended our one day photography event! We collected 5 full bags of food donations! Thank you for your generosity. Below are some of our favorite shots from the day.
