Is it just me, or has time been moving faster lately? It’s almost December, and it’s high time I updated all y’all on some things. 

Rescue of the Month

Our November Rescue of the Month is Minnesota Spay Neuter Assistance Program (MNSNAP). This wonderful organization provides low-cost, high-quality spay and neuter surgeries for companion animals belonging to low-income families, shelters and rescues. They’ve performed over 25,000 surgeries since their inception in 2010. If you follow their Facebook page, it looks like they’re averaging about 40 surgeries per day (!) I’m very happy to donate a percentage of this month’s client sessions to a group that’s making such a huge difference in our community.

WCCO Features Joy Sessions

I was super excited to have been featured on the local CBS news station – WCCO – on Sunday, October 28th. When they contacted me about doing a piece on the Joy Sessions, I was nervous about being on t.v., but so honored that they wanted to tell my story. Aristea Brady made me feel really comfortable, and my client, Jen, brought all of us to tears with her amazing interview. I was on the road when it aired, coming home from a large commercial shoot (more on that in the coming months… hint: it involves kittens!) so in case you missed too, here’s a link to the video: http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2012/10/28/joy-sessions-capture-the-last-moments-of-pet-owner/

Recent Updates

Sessions have been filling up fast this year, and my apologies to those we couldn’t fit in before the holidays. I never thought I’d be as busy as I am, and I’m so appreciative of all my wonderful clients making this possible, and bearing with some longer-than-usual timelines. There’s some fun things planned for 2013 that will provide more structure and make your entire “Sarah Beth Experience” even more enjoyable  :)

Many of you know that I’ve been working out of a new studio since the spring. It’s SO great to have a separation between work and home, for the first time in over 6 years. I have plans for an open house sometime after the new year… if I can ever get it fully decorated / put-together, of course. 

The Sarah Beth Photography Facebook page is nearing 4,000 followers, and I’m planning to do a fabulous giveaway once we hit that mark. 

There’s some big things happening in the Joy Session world, more on that in the coming weeks / months as well.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who has helped make this such a great year! Your support and excitement are overwhelming, and I couldn’t do this without you.

I leave you with a sweet Joy Session photo of Chester, the Black Lab. He’s just 18 months old, and will tragically be leaving his dad very soon.
