Phoebe was the most loving, caring, and forgiving dog the earth has ever known. If everyone could be just a little more like Phoebe, the world would be a better place. I always knew she was too perfect to stay here on earth for too long. At the age of 10, she lost her battle with lymphoma. My heart is still broken, but Phoebe wouldn't want that. Her mission in life was to bring joy to everyone she met. She smiled her little crooked smile at the world and the world smiled back. So I can't be sad. I can't cry. Instead, I offer "Phoebe's Photos." This is a portrait session featuring your prematurely terminally ill pet and your family. It's a portrait session built around happiness and love and creating perfect memories for the future. During these sessions we don't cry, we don't talk about anything sad, we just celebrate the precious little life in front of us!
These sessions are done here in San Diego at no charge to you out of the kindness of Phoebe's heart. Please have your vet contact me if you believe you are a candidate for Phoebe's Photos.
San Diego animal rescue groups have told me that professional photos make a HUGE difference when posting their animals online for adoption and I am more than happy to help out with that! Whether you have 1 or 100 animals that need to be photographed, let me know and we can work together to get everyone photographed (of course at no charge) so the animals have their best opportunities to get adopted! This is not just limited to cats and dogs either - Bring me those rabbits, lizards, chinchillas, snakes, parrots - anything!
Whether it's photographing your fosters so they have a better online presence, or helping you with fundraising, I'm so happy to help! If you have ideas, I would love to hear them! Reach out and let's see how we can work together!
How it Works: Apply for a fundraiser through Gretchen Otero Photography If approved I'll provide you with certificates to sell for a complimentary location session and an 8x10 art print. Your group sets the price for the certificates (I recommend between $20-$35) and your group keeps 100% of that money collected! Yes, I said 100%. Simply provide Gretchen Otero Photography with a list of names, phone numbers, and email addresses to whom you sold the certificates and that's it! I'll take it from there and schedule all the appointments and hopefully, your group has SMASHED your fundraising goals!
