POCKETSHOTS ARE BACK!
Pocketshots are totally fun all day portrait photography events designed to raise money for animal welfare organizations & get stellar family photos on your walls at the same time. $25 from every session scheduled is donated to the selected organization. In the last 4 years, POCKETSHOTS has raised over $50,000 for Houston’s animals in need.
The beneficiary for upcoming events is doing HUGE things in Houston. Rescued Pets Movement aka RPM is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that transports animals from Houston and Greater Houston area shelters to other 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal welfare organizations that have demand for adoptable pets. As of 8/26, RPM has moved 3353 animals from BARC in the past year. In addition to scheduling your portrait session, you can also help support RPM by doing short-term fostering, making a donation, sharing your life saving ideas, and following them on their website and facebook pages.
