MINI'S FOR NEMO
There comes a time when you have to choose what is important to you.
Whether that happens to be family, friends, portraits, health, or whatever it may be for you, there are also times when it feels wonderful to get something while also giving back to somebody.
This is where Mini's for Nemo - our current Mini Session Special - is coming in to play. A close family friend of mine is working to raise money so they can begin training a service dog for their son, Logan. Logan has been diagnosed with Autism, but also has seizures, some of which have even caused him to stop breathing. Nemo would be a tremendous benefit to the Hindergardt family to be able to alert them when Logan is about to have a seizure. While Nemo cannot prevent them from happening, he can give this family a little bit of piece of mind by being able to prepare a tiny bit more for these occurrences.
Having a trained service animal for an illness is crucial as they have gone through extensive training to be able to key in on the chemical changes in your body, as well as to be able to make sure you, or those around you, are aware of what is about to happen. Many service animal's also are trained on how to make sure minimal amounts of injury occur as well.
They are needing to raise $4650 just for the FIRST HALF of training to begin the process. That's not including the amount that will be due before they are able to bring Nemo home. The total cost for a trained service animal is around $9000. Any additional over that will just help them to pay any medical bills that they have encountered.
These particular mini sessions will be happening at Sutton Wilderness Park in Norman, OK on November 3rd, 2019. Even if the weather isn't perfect, there is a gazebo there for cover to accommodate! All mini sessions will be 15 minutes in length and come with 1 digital image included. The session fee of $99 is NON-REFUNDABLE and NON-TRANSFERRABLE to another date due to the nature of these mini's.
There will be the option to be able to purchase additional digitals, as well as different products with our limited products for minis.
100% of the session fee is going directly to benefit the training costs for Nemo. 75% of any digital upgrade will also be going to benefit this, AS WELL AS 25% of any product purchase.
The only reason not 100% of digital upgrades and product purchases are not is to cover costs of the products and shipping costs to get you these items you are purchasing.
All time slots will be first come first served, but you are free to purchase additional time slots back to back if you feel you will need more than 15 minutes for your mini session. There will not be a discount for multiple sessions purchased for this particular mini session event.
To put some numbers into perspective: proceeds going to the Hindergardt's just from the session fees if every single mini session time is booked will be $2376. That is a wonderful dent into those expenses for Logan and Nemo.
