Nala and Duncan are here to spread a little Holiday cheer! Every time I see these guys they get cuter and cuter, if that’s possible…Angie and David brought in their 2 adorable pups for a holiday session and we had a great time dressing up them up, and I think they may have even enjoyed it a little Happy Holidays to all! Enjoy…
This shoot was just too much fun! Naomi and Rawn brought in their sweet little guy Gunner for a family session. I am sure you can tell how much he loved being in the photos and when he wasn’t included he seemed to get just a bit jealous Enjoy…
I had a lot of fun yesterday photographing Constance and Corey during their creative family session. They also brought along their pup Cupid who really lived up to his name showering us with lots of hugs and wet kisses. Enjoy…
As the winter months are sneaking up on us, I’ve been searching for the best way to bring some holiday goodness this year. I took to the advice of some friends and visited 360Communities.org, a Burnsville-based organization that focuses on strengthening and helping our neighbors.
From there, I read several stories in local media about Minnesotans helping other Minnesotans through various means, including the act of providing necessities and gifts during the fall holidays. I inquired about the program and later met Steve Haschig, who is the Senior Director of Development. He was the subject of a Star Tribune article on the “Armful of Love’s” Holiday Caring Program.
The lead of the story caught my attention: ”A couple of years ago, Steve Haschig was taken aback by one man’s request for an iPod for Christmas, especially in light of the rest of the family’s modest wish list, which included food, socks, underwear and a blue-hooded sweatshirt.” The story went on to talk about how the man wanted the iPod to listen to music that helped him stay comfortable while receiving chemotherapy treatments for cancer. Mr. Haschig and his wife provided an iPod to the man so he could enjoy the soothing music.
Mr. Haschig later said” “It changed our attitude about our response,” and that’s when I knew that I’d found my avenue to help this holiday season.
“Armful of Love” helps hundreds of families around the Twin Cities each year during the holiday season to provide needed clothing, food, gifts and a great boost to their holiday spirits.
As we approach the busiest time of the year for in-studio shooting, Images by Kris has decided to assist “Armful of Love” by sponsoring three of their families for the holidays. Images by Kris will host a weekend long “Holiday Mini Shoot” at our Minneapolis Studio, Nov. 20 and 21. A portion of all sales from this two-day event will help us sponsor three families that need some extra help this holiday season.
We’re all aware of the local headlines showing the impact that the economy has had on everyone in the Twin Cities this year, but even the smallest actions can make a big difference to just one person. Please visit Communities360.org where you can find other ways to help our neighbors not only this holiday season, but throughout the year.
Happy Holidays to everyone, looking forward to seeing you in the studio!
What ended up being a not so great week weather wise in Minneapolis has turned into a fabulous last couple of days for shooting outdoors! Lindsay, Nate and Koby were in the studio Friday for their family session. Koby was full of energy and absolutely adorable! Her energy and personality just shine! I had a great time working with you guys! Enjoy…
The dogs days of summer are long gone in Minnesota, but our Wags & Tails benefit came close on yesterday! We met several adorable, energetic. slobbering, loving and tail chasing pups as we took advantage of the Sunday’s great weather for awesome photos. The family members who brought the dogs were so sweet and each dog’s personality and character stood out as we photographed in the studio and walking the streets near our studio in Northeast Minneapolis. I would like to thank all of the participants who joined Images by Kris to help raise money for Homeward Bound Dog Rescue of Minneosta yesterday–we raised money that’s going to go along way in helping rescue dogs, like my two: Jerico and DJ, and even other rescue dogs who were there.
As many of you already know we are very passionate about helping animals in need. We have decided to host a Wags & Tails Mini Shoot Extravaganza on Sunday October 17 to benefit Homeward Bound Dog Rescue of MN. Our hope is to raise money, collect items in need and also capture your four legged love on in a unique way. More details below. I hope to see a lot of you there!
Bring in your furry four-legged loved one on Oct. 17 for a mini photo session and we will donate 100% of the session proceeds and 10% of the print sales to Homeward Bound Dog Rescue of MN.
