Fundraising For Your Kid’s School

Posted by & filed under Be Inspired, Follow The Hartshorn Family!, Giving Back, Great Ideas.

One of the ways that we are able to give back with our busi­ness is through the fundrais­ers to which we donate, schools and orga­ni­za­tions in the sur­round­ing com­mu­nities that focus on edu­ca­tion, health and well­-​be­ing. Hartshorn Portraiture donates more than $60,000 each year, and win­ning bid­ders can receive over $2,000 each of Mac’s photog­ra­phy… Read more »

Thanks to those of you who brought in your pet for a “Dog Portrait Session” with our girls. Cameron and Madeline sur­passed our expec­ta­tions and also enjoyed the expe­ri­ence of meet­ing so many sweet dogs. Capturing the per­son­al­i­ties of our furry friends was only part of their job; they also han­dled the edit­ing and selected… Read more »

Spring Flower Containers

Posted by & filed under Be Inspired, Giving Back, Great Ideas, Our Favorite Things.

It does the soul good to get out­side and work in the gar­den– my soul at least! I planted a few con­tain­ers over the week­end and tried some­thing dif­fer­ent this year. Instead of plant­ing bulbs I chose Ranunculus, Primroses and Pansies in a vari­ety of col­ors– they last longer than bulbs and look spectacular.

It’s not every day that I walk into our stu­dio to find it trans­formed into a yoga retreat. Our stu­dio manager’s wife and favorite yoga teacher Laurie G did just that on a chilly Thursday morn­ing. I walked in and imme­di­ately could tell that this was no ordi­nary Thursday, there was the scent of aro­mather­apy oils float­ing in the air,… Read more »

Dog Sessions– back by popular demand!

Posted by & filed under Events, Giving Back, Portraiture.

During the first quar­ter of the year Hartshorn Portraiture focuses on a fundrais­ing ven­ture. Last year the girls phở­tographed beloved four-​legged fam­ily mem­bers and donated $2,000 to the Liberty Humane Society in Jersey City (see images above). With such great suc­cess we decided to do it again! We are proud to announce that our daugh­ters are now… Read more »

Do what you love, love what you do…

Posted by & filed under Giving Back.

Hopefully we will all have a few min­utes dur­ing the next few days to think about what we are thank­ful for in our lives. Mac and I often dis­cuss how lucky we are to have jobs that we enjoy and the oppor­tu­nity to meet so many won­der­ful peo­ple. Our busi­ness and your familes have grown together over the… Read more »
