HSTT’s “Porchraits” Project

A quick, fun and safe a way to creatively document these wild times with our furry friends and loved ones!

The Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe has partnered with local photographers to offer quick, socially distant family portraits or "Porchraits” with hopes of lifting spirits AND raising money for our community's homeless pets.

The specifics:

Porchrait session: Photo session will be quick (less than 10 minutes) and will be taken from 6+ feet away.

Available locations: Truckee, Kings Beach and Tahoe City. Please reach out if you are interested and not in these areas, we may be able to make it happen.

You'll receive:
• The best photos from your shoot, edited and high resolution (average of 3 professional photos)
• Print release (so you are free to print and share your images with family and friends!)
• Receipt of digital images within10 days, if not sooner

All proceeds go to The Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe. A suggested donation is $25, but feel free to donate whatever you feel comfortable with!

Fill out the HSTT Porchrait Project Sign-up Form here.

Our photographer will then contact you to coordinate a date and an approximate session time. On the day of the photo session we will text you 15 minutes prior to arriving at your home, so that you can come out on your front steps, porch or balcony - or wherever you feel most comfortable and safe!!

Safety Measures: For everyone’s safety, please note that the photographer will not interact with anyone physically or touch anything during the photo session. The photographer will be keeping a recommended 6+ foot distance from you and your family. And for that reason, they are unable to accept any in-person contributions. All donations must be submitted electronically.

How to Dress: Just be your unique selves! We want to capture the essence of your family. So, if you want to have some fun with this, do it! You want to wear your holiday finest, bring it on! Feel like it’s just a PJ kind-of-day, no one’s judging! Whatever you want your family photos to portray, our photographers will be there to capture it - from afar!

Timeline: Bookings are open May 12 – June 7, 2020 so book fast to take advantage of this memorable opportunity!
