NEWS!!  In the local newspaper!

Helen and her family dog & mascot Cuddy were featured in the December 18, 2009 Wilmington Star News article Section B, pages 1 & 5!  The article was entitled "Despite recession, pet portraits in demand" and included our portrait session with Wilmington photographer Dick Parrott while at his studio on Wednesday, December 16, 2009.  It was such a fun event! We are currently deciding on which proof to choose!  The photo will be used with our facebook and twitter listings.
