Fundraising Coffee Table Book Project

Raising Funds for Houston Cares Animal Rescue

Our goal is to raise over $10,000 for Houston Cares Animal Rescue while creating beautiful custom artwork of your beloved pet(s) and while being featured in a Coffee Table Book

To become a contributor to the the book "Rescued." Please read further for details on our application process and how to submit your application:

We have raised over $10,350 for local charities with previous book projects

For each book project we have done we receive 800+ applicants but only choose 100 dogs and their families for this experience!  While we may not be able to provide individual responses to every applicant, please rest assured that we carefully read every heartfelt story, and our hearts swell with gratitude, knowing the profound love your pet has brought into your life.
Applications will undergo continuous review, and from these, we will choose a select group to feature in this year’s “Rescued” book.
If your application is chosen, a team member from John Glaser Photography will reach out via text to schedule your initial interview

I cant wait to edit this and include pictures but John Glaser is absolutely amazing. His photographer Alex is great at what he does and is very patient. It was my 4 kids, 2 dogs, and myself. I have never been able to get family photos done, especially including my dogs. Not only was Alex patient and able to work with my goofy dogs but he was exceptional at working with my kids. I have a special needs kid and the others are hyperactive. They are 12, 5, 2, and 1. The positive atmosphere is what made everything a success. I CRIED when I saw my pictures. It made me so happy to have beautiful photos of my family. I cannot wait to show them off. I highly recommend John Glaser. We will absolutely be back for more fun pictures!

My family and I completed generational photos with 3 generations present (my mother, sister, son, and me). The photographer was experienced, helping us to create poses that translated into beautiful photos. The owner was so patient with my family during the selection process because we changed our configuration several times. I definitely recommend this company!

Did a dog session at the Houston branch and we are absolutely satisfied with the end result. My husband and I are so happy to have professional photos of our dogs and us that will last a life time.

John and his team are wonderful!! We had pictures taken by Ricky in April 2022 of our family of 3 + dog and had a wonderful storyboard made to hang above our fireplace. Here we are almost two years later with a family of 4 + dog and we were thrilled to return to have John capture our growing family and our son’s first birthday cupcake smash! John is so fun and creative (and extremely patient and understanding) when getting both of our little boys (2.5yrs, 1yr) and dog (90lbs black lab) to smile and look at the camera! Pictures were taken on Saturday, reviews of the picture were the following Monday. Trish was so lovely and helpful as we selected our photos, and there were so many we loved the we designed another storyboard and additional 20 picture album to cherish all the other amazing photos we adore!

Brought both our pups in for senior dog pet portraits. John was patient and professional. Definitely knew what he was doing and was very understanding of our senior dogs. Very communicative. Afterwards walked us through the various packages for photo boxes and portfolios. At the end of our session we scheduled a follow up zoom call to preview images and pick packages we wanted to purchase. Definitely enjoyed our experience and would greatly recommend.
