Picture this: A marathon photo day with your dog

Los Angeles photographer Lori Fusaro contacted us recently and asked if she could use her photography to help our cause. I thought, "Oh how very nice," which turned out to be a bit of an understatement once we took a look-see at her work. This girl has got it going on!
Check out her portfolio.

Lori's been lending her talent to numerous animal causes, from shelter dogs to rescue groups. After some excited back and forth, we set up a date/place for an all day photo marathon to benefit BR and to give dog lovers an incredibly affordable portrait with their favorite dog. Kids are encouraged to get in on this with their pets, too.

Save the date:
SAT, MARCH 27th from 10am- 3pm - in Oakland

Lori is waiving all her fees for this fundraiser. Sessions are 20 minutes each and can include dogs and people too. There are 2 donation levels: $50 and $100. BADRAP will receive 50% and the person getting their photos taken will be able to use the other half for themselves to purchase prints.

Bring a bag of Bully Sticks and/or Tough Toys for the dogs and you'll receive an extra $10 print credit.

The event will be held at a gorgeous Oakland area location. Once you make your appointment, all details will be sent to you: APPOINTMENTS

Sessions are limited and are first come first serve, so book early to make sure you get a spot. A BADRAP representative will confirm your reservation and send you all the details.

Once you book your appointment, Lori wants to know about you and your dog :

Talk to Lori

Thank you Lori. We can't wait!

Hi Donna

can Lori set up a day in La so we can help buy a few toys for the barn along with a new pic of our squishy heads?

Donna said...

Nice thought, anon. Thanks for thinking of the barn crew. Why don't you drop her a line. She's dialed in to her email now while we get people organized for this photo day, so you should get quick response. Thank you!

Talk about a win-win! I just made our appointment. Even with the 2 hour drive (1 way), this is still a bargain! We will be sure to bring some appropriate pibble goodies for donation.

Thrilled to be able to see Riddick again! What fun.

We'll definitely post some of the photos for our buddies on the east coast.

Gee, I miss one day of reading the blogs and miss a great opportunity for having great doggie pix taken. Looks like all of your appointments booked up quick! Let us all know how the day went.

Oh, and if you take some video clips of the day for all your fans. I hope to have an excuse to be out on the left coast in the future...
