Fat Orange Cat Studio’s first Open House is this Thursday, March 3 2011, at Audrey’s pet supplies and services on Newbury Street. After months of debate whether I should have a business spin-off for just wedding photography, I have decided to keep everything under one roof. So, I am officially rebranding myself as a “pet-and-wedding photographer,” which in my mind is very different than being a “pet photographer…and a wedding photographer” or vice versa. The two need not be mutually exclusive! It doesn’t matter whether I photograph your pet, or whether I photograph your wedding. At the end of the day we all have one thing in common – we love our best friends!

      So to celebrate, I am hosting an Open House with Audrey’s on Newbury Street, Boston MA. Mark your calendars for March 3, from 6 to 8pm. There will be things to eat and drink, two and four-legged friends to meet, photographs to browse through, wedding invitations to peruse, and finger crossed that it will fit, a photo booth.

      There will also prizes to raffle away! All proceeds will be donated to the Animal Rescue League of Boston.

      Also making its debut at the Open House will be a couple of projects that have been brewing between Fat Orange Cat & Parrott Design Studio for quite a few months.
