Dog Days of Summer 2014 = Success


NP Design & Photography’s third annual “Dog Days of Summer” event was held on Wednesday August 6th at their studio at 145 Second Street.  The event focused on pet portraits to raise donations for Gregory’s Gift of Hope, a local “no-kill” shelter in New Richmond.

“This year, we raised $800 and collected 267 pounds of dog food!” stated Nate Peterson, studio owner and photographer.  “We were blown away by the donations that came in for this great cause!  We really are lucky to live in such a caring community.”

Next year’s event plans to be bigger and better.  For further information or to participate in next year’s event, please contact the studio at 715-246-7510 or email us at

To make a donation, please contact Gregory’s Gift of Hope at 715-246-2467.

Family Color Palettes

Here at the studio, we put in a lot of effort throughout the year to make family portraits as stress-free, fun, and memorable as possible. One of the major sources of this worry is coordinating everyone's wardrobe and making sure all your family members look and feel their best the day of the session. To help better illustrate some of the ideas, terms, and schemes we use when discussing outfits at the pre-consult, we created a helpful "Color Palettes" guide that has just hit Pinterest! Check it out. Can you tell we are excited for fall?!
