Free Photoshoot + DVD

Personal

Here’s a deal for you…

My grandmother in Scotland is very sick and probably won’t be around much longer. I’ll be flying out to see her this Sunday. When I get back I’ll need to turn right around and fly to Connecticut to shoot a wedding on Halloween.

This means I’ll need to be away from my sweet pooch for about 2 weeks. I just hate to board her so I want to offer this awesome one-time deal: a Lindsay Docherty Photography Photoshoot plus a DVD of the images in exchange for looking after Emma for me while I’m away. This is an $875 value ($325 session fee + $550 DVD).

Details on Emma: She’s a 5 year old Jack Russell / Beagle mix. 16 lbs. She’s incredibly sweet, loves to cuddle, gets along well with cats, dogs, and children. She’s well trained and extremely good natured. She’s not a biter and rarely barks. She’s fed twice a day, sleeps in her kennel at night, and is a pretty lazy sack of dog for the majority of the day. She’s very loving and attentive. She can’t be trusted off leash so she’ll either need a fenced in yard or to be walked on leash.

Looking for: Someone with a house or a landlord who allows dogs. Obviously a pet-friendly person who can feed her and take her out a few times a day. She can be in her kennel for about 8 hours during the day but it’s great if it’s less. A fenced yard would be a huge plus. You’ll be watching her from October 18th to November 3rd.

The offer: A normal photography session in the San Francisco Bay Area. They usually last 1-2 hours but no real time limit. Outfit changes are okay. Up to 5 people. Can be a pet, family, maternity, high school senior, engagement, bridal, or general portrait session. You’ll receive at least 60 edited images on a DVD within two weeks of the session. This is a great opportunity since the holidays are coming up. Use this as a gift or for yourself for making holiday presents. Must be used by November 28th.

If you’re interested, contact me asap at info@lindsaydocherty.com. Subject: Emma.

Really, how can you say no to this face?

Thanks,
Lindsay

p.s. Thank you for all of the kind words of condolences. My grandmother is a pretty amazing woman having raised 12 (no, that’s not a typo!) children in a very poor household. She’s in her mid-80s and has lived a very full life. She has dementia now so she won’t be the same grandmother I know but I look forward to seeing my aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Happy Fourth of July
Wave your little flags, watch the sky for fantastic colors, and eat yourself silly among friends and family!You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. ~Erma Bombeck

The past few months have been nuts. I fractured my ankle at the Multiple Sclerosis MuckRuckus event in early June. I’ve been quite ornery about the fact that I’m still not allowed to run. You runners will appreciate how painful it has been that I haven’t been able to get out and run for the past two months. I have had some awesome couples that were so sympathetic when I showed up in a lovely, hot, clunky boot for their weddings. Speaking of, I’ve had an absolute glut of shoots. The weddings have been incredible. I’m working on cranking them out and there are so many more gorgeous events to post so check back often – they will blow you ...

In my life before portrait and wedding photography, I was in graduate school for sociology.In undergrad, I didn't know what opportunities there were for sociology majors. I just loved the subject matter and had some incredible professors that I never put much thought into what would happen after graduation. I learned that the main route for sociology majors who are really into sociology is graduate school so you can make more sociologists. This was prefect as I loved being in the classroom and I was pretty good at being a student (graduated magna cum laude and a member of Phi Beta Kappa).My shtick was family and gender roles and social psy ...
