Pet book sets deadline for public portraits

Noted Portland portrait photographer Charles Waugh and the Oregon Humane Society (OHS) have announced an Aug. 29 deadline for furry friends to be included in the upcoming coffee table book “We Love Our Pets.”

A full-page portrait of a loved pet, along with the pet’s human family members, can be included in the professionally produced, hardbound book for a donation of $250 to OHS.

“The bond between us and our pets is so close; I love to capture that in portraits,” Waugh said.

Waugh will photograph pets and their families at his studio in Southeast Portland. The book will be published in time for the 2014 holiday season, and all proceeds will help pets at OHS.

The family of each pet photographed will receive a free copy of the book, along with the opportunity for additional portrait sessions of family members and children at no charge.

To sign up for a photo session and see examples of other pet portraits included in the book, visit www.weloveourpets.org or call 503-663-1513.
