Ah Christmas! At this time of year the air seems filled with celebration and cheer! Businesses and houses adorned in pretty lights, little children bursting with excitement as they count down the days to Santa’s arrival, and everyone full of generosity and goodwill.
I absolutely love the holidays! But the part I love the most is watching friends and neighbors pull together in order to give back to their communities. It’s enough to make me want to belt-out the lyrics to a Christmas song.
♪♪ And so I’m offering this simple phrase, To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it’s been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you!! ♪♪♪ … (singing just slightly off key to get the dogs going)
Last night Elegant Images was fortunate enough to be involved in another one of these spectacular charitable events. By teaming up with Mr. and Mrs. Claus, Legend K9 Training Academy, and over 65 kids, parents and pets we helped raise a whopping $330 for the newly formed fund called Carstairs Pet Relief.
CPR is the brain child of Kelsey Logan from Legend K9 Training Academy. Her goal in setting up the Carstairs Pet Relief fund is to help expand services in an around the community; for things like an off leash park, helping people in a financial pinch pay for boarding fees of a lost or missing pooch, and making spay and neuter clinics more affordable.
Kelsey has been working and training dogs for over 25 years. She is a huge advocate of praise positive reinforcement training practices and a big supporter of dog and child safety. Last night her skills were evident, as she helped us organize a few of our furry friends in front of the camera, and sweet talked the pups into showing us their “pretty ears” for some fantastic holiday shots!
With heartfelt gratitude, Shane and I would like to extend our warmest wishes to you all this holiday season, and thank you for letting us be part of your community! If you are setting up your own community event or just a simple photo shoot with the whole family feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
