National Pit Bull Awareness Month, Ail Peterson Photography

What could be better than spending some quality bonding time outdoors with your Pittie, getting beautiful images for your home, AND supporting a local non-profit that supports Pit Bulls? Because we LOVE Pitties so much, we’re donating 50% of ALL session fees that are booked during National Pit Bull Awareness month to our friends at Passion For Pitties or San Diego Pittie Parents.

Here’s how it works:

  • Review the Experience, Session Details/Investment, and Products pages of this website (alipeterson.com) to learn more about how the photo session works and what kinds of products you can order.
  • Call, email, or submit a contact form to let us know you’re interested.
  • Schedule a complimentary in-home Consultation to decide if you’d like to book.
  • Book your session (this is typically done during the Consultation).
  • Enjoy your images, products, and the fact that you helped support the Pitties!

Here’s the fine print:

  • ONLY sessions that are booked during October 2017 qualify.
  • The photo shoot itself does NOT have to take place during the month of October, however, the appointment MUST be booked (with payment made) before November 1st.
  • This is NOT a mini session. A full session must be booked.
  • You may choose which non-profit you’d like to donate to. Options include Passion For Pitties and San Diego Pittie Parents. If you do not wish to choose, the fee will be split 50/50.
  • You do NOT have to own a Pit Bull to participate. We accept support from all breeds 🙂

Calling all Pit Bulls and their parents…we want YOU! I’m currently casting Pit Bull models for my next campaign in honor of Pit Bull Awareness month (in October).

Must be available to join us for the photo shoot at Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve on Sunday, 9/3/17.

Pit Bulls, San Diego Pet Photographer, Ali Peterson Photography


Why submit your dog?

1. The photo shoot is FREE. Yep, it won’t cost you a thing. All you have to do is bring yourself and your dog.

2. Professional photo shoots are pure entertainment for you and your dog. It’s an experience like no other.

3. You won’t leave empty handed – You’ll receive a FREE 5×7 print, as well as a free custom mobile app featuring your dog’s images from the photo shoot. This is a fun and easy way to brag about your pet’s modeling skills on social media. And you’ll be able to purchase prints of any of the images from the session via an online gallery.

4. You’ll be contributing to a greater cause – helping to raise awareness and support for two of San Diego’s biggest Pit Bull advocacy groups, SD Pittie Parents and Passion For Pitties.


What’s the catch?

There’s no catch – the only catch we believe in is the kind a dog does when playing fetch. With that said, there are some requirements:

1. Your dog does NOT need to be a purebred Pit Bull, but should at least have distinguishable Pit Bull traits.

2. You must be willing to be in at least a few of the photos with your dog.

3. Limit 2 dogs per person.

4. You must be available for 1 of the 7 time slots (8am, 9am, 10am, 3pm, 4pm, 5pm, 6pm) on Sunday 9/3/17 for the scheduled photo shoot at Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve.

5. You must submit a photo of your dog to ali@alipeterson.com by Thursday, 8/31/17.

6. No previous modeling experience required.
