We’re huge advocates of getting your annual picture taken with Santa and your dachshund(s). For us it’s a family tradition that started back in 2010. And I personally really like seeing the progression of 1 dachshund, then 2 dachshunds and then finally 3 dachshunds, when I look back over the 8 years worth of pictures. I’ve also enjoyed seeing Rufus and his pack grow older, whiter and wiser in their photos. πŸ™‚ These are the memories that I’ll cherish forever. ❀ ❀ ❀

Sometimes I think the pictures with Santa get more expensive each year — especially for digital downloads, but they are hiring a Santa, a building a set, and all of the other logistical things that go into producing annual Santa pictures. So I accept it, and many times, I try to get our Santa pictures at a location that benefit a local a humane society or shelter (when the scheduling allows it).

However, what I continue to dislike, is that our pictures are not color corrected, cropped or enhanced in any way. They just give us these rather awful raw images, which left unedited – in my opinion, are not very flattering for human or hound. Boo!

So this holiday season, I want to do something for our dachshund and dog friends – near and far. If you take the time and spend the money to get your picture with Santa, I’ll happily professionally edit them for you in exchange for a $25 tax deductible donation to DOGS. πŸ™‚ #TisTheSeason

Here’s how it works. For a $25 tax deductible donation to DOGS, I’ll professionally edit 1 to 2 Santa photos for you and your pack, and I’ll guarantee that the photo(s) will be back to you within 24 hours of receipt of payment and digital copy. That’s a really quick turn around for me, and a significantly reduced rate, but tis the season to be charitable and of goodwill. Besides, I’m happy to do it for our friends and see everyone’s sweet Santa pictures. πŸ™‚

If interested email Santa pictures to –> johnny@johnnyortez.com, and make payment to DOGS by clicking here. Please send original size images when emailing them. Thank you!

Okay. Whether you use our services or not, definitely do get your Santa pictures!!! They’re certainly fun and festive keepsakes. ❀ #SantaPictures #SantasHelper

Happy December and happy holidays friends. πŸ™‚

    I have to say: your pack never takes a bad photo!
    Rufus grows ever more distinguished, Lily more composed, less worried and Emily has grown into such a beautiful black & tan: yes, that is my favorite coloration in the smooth.
    Merry Christmas Johnny and Yours and the Pack!
    Thank You For All You Do!
