A local photographer is offering a very special photo session for our four-legged friends at everyone’s favorite sunflower location!
Emily Allen of Tailor Mayde Photography is hosting sunflower sessions with your dog at Sunflowers of Sanborn – and the best part is half of the session fee will be donated to Niagara SPCA!
“I grew up in Sanborn so the first year the fields were there, I think I was just as excited about people knowing a place called Sanborn existed, as I was about the beautiful fields.
When I first found out about the sunflower fields, I was going on what felt like my twelfth year of pregnancy (I was just about 42 weeks pregnant). I basically just stationed myself 24/7 in the air conditioned house on top of a yoga ball while being hand fed all the spicy foods until he finally came. At this point, I had put my camera down to focus my time on my growing family and I knew ‘there was always next year.’”
But next year never came. I drove by the new location last year multiple times and you could tell they were working hard to make it a memorable visit for everyone that made the trip. So I was pretty upset as were many, when we found out there would be no Sunflowers in 2018.
Needless to say, when I saw they were opening again this year, I knew I needed to fill those fields with pups!
The Niagara SPCA was a quick 10 minute ride from the house I grew up in. So when I turned 18 and had the freedom of a car and spare change for gas, I’d go to the SPCA to see the pups. I knew I wasn’t allowed any more dogs at home but just going there, squatting down on the ground, talking to them in that funny dog voice we all have and giving them a little scratch through the fence would make my day and I knew it meant something to them too.
A friend of mine that is involved in a local rescue recently said, ‘It’s not just a hobby you can set aside a few hours for, its a commitment you pour your whole heart and soul into.’ I am happy to donate a portion of my session fees to those that care and live to make the lives of animals as amazing as they possible can.”
