"Shelter in Home" book

Looking for southeastern Michigan pets that were either rescued 
during the pandemic outbreak, or previously rescued pets that made your life better during all of the craziness. 

Let's tell your story!  

Share your pet’s story in this limited edition book - what makes them special and any stories from the stay at home experience. 

I know my pups have entertained a lot of people via Zoom photobombs!  How about yours?  

Maybe it's marathon snuggles while binge-watching The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel or getting you outside for regular walks.

We could all use some happy news and adorable photos of pets, right?

Here's the scoop:

Enjoy an outdoor photoshoot with your four-legged friend.  It's a fun adventure for everyone and you get the full Pawdacious experience at the best value ever!

And BONUS!  Images from your photoshoot will be featured in the  coffee-table style book that supports Do Only Good Animal Rescue.  Helping dogs from the Oakland County animal shelter find their forever homes, this foster based group does amazing work.
I believe that pets are family, too.  A house isn't a home without one.  And every home should include a family portrait - let's create yours!

Do Only Good Animal Rescue
Focused on helping dogs get adopted from the Oakland County Animal Shelter, Do Only Good is a foster-based 501(3)(c) rescue.  

So far they have helped over 700 dogs find new homes!

Rescues have been particularly hit hard with most major fundraising events canceled.  Here's a great way to help!

The Shelter in Home goal is to raise between $3,000 and $5,000 for Do Only Good.
Go behind the scenes and see some images from the first photoshoots!

Frequently asked questions
  • Text Hover
Does  my dog need to be well trained? - LOL, heck no!  It does help if they know how to sit but I'm used to working with all kinds of dogs (including my own) that are not perfectly trained.

What if my dog needs to stay on a leash?  No worries, leashes can be erased out of most images.  Harnesses will most likely stay in the photo.  This goes for cats as well, they should be on leash if outdoors.  I also have some very long leashes that will allow for more movement while maintaining safety.

Can my cat be a part of the book?  Yes, as long as we can safely hold the photoshoot outdoors.  This goes for any kind of pet adopted from a rescue or animal shelter (besides spiders-sorry, but they scare me and I would not be able to get any good image of them since I would be freaking out).

Can we hold the portrait session in my backyard?  Yes, as long as I can access the yard without going through your home.  If you're not sure if it would make a good backdrop you can always send me a quick video of the layout.

I don't know of a good park, where should we go?  I have a list of some great parks depending on where you live.  I'm also open to exploring new areas.  We'll have a consultation call before our shoot where we figure out all the details.

Do I need to be in the photos?  No, but I hope you will be!   If you don't want your photo to be included in the book that is 100% okay, but you should still have images with your pets.  I can help with getting you situated (not posed exactly, but in the right position) and if you don't love the images you don't have to keep them.

What is an artwork credit?  Do I need to pay anything beyond the registration fee?
Your $100 registration fee includes your photoshoot and donation to the charity, it does not include any artwork.  But if you love your images and want to create drool-worthy art to display in your home, or an album to treasure, you can apply your artwork credit towards your purchase.  There is no obligation to purchase anything beyond the registration fee.  But fair warning, I don't make it easy on are going to love your images :). An upgrade option is available on the checkout page if you know you want artwork, and you'll get extra bonus credit if you book the upgrade now.

What if I didn't adopt my pet during Covid-19 but I still want them to be in a book?  We heard you!  By popular demand we are adding a section to the book to feature dogs that weren't adopted during the actual pandemic but still helped their families get through it in any way.  So go ahead and register!
