February meant personal time for me where I was able to enjoy visiting with a couple of sets of guests and exploring new sights (in nine years of coming to Charleston and now living here for almost two, there are STILL so many things we haven’t seen). Although we have been to the USS Yorktown many times over the years, we had never visited the Vietnam Experience exhibit. Well, we finally went in February with a Vietnam veteran friend, which made it a very moving experience for us.
In January of this year, a new memorial was also dedicated at Patriots Point honoring the Gold Star families.
[Did you know I offer discounts for military and LEOs?]
So many things to see and do around here - if you are ever bored, you have only yourself to blame.
Roux allowed me a Chinese New Year photo for Year of the Dog (also known as Year of the Brown Male Dog, which seemed completely appropriate).
While I had blocked photo time for a couple of local events in February, two were, unfortunately, rained out. C’est la vie! But the annual Southeastern Wildlife Exposition didn’t disappoint, especially when it came to the Dock Diving Dogs!
This spring, I am working with Charleston Animal Society on a special fundraiser. The adoption floor at CAS is a very high traffic area and the portraits of loving families with their pets currently adorn the walls. Now through March 16, your pet has a chance to win a wall space (and a portrait session!) and perhaps that image of you and your beloved pet will be the reason someone chooses to adopt. Click here for details. This is a great way to help raise funds needed to care for the thousands of animals that come through their doors.
In February, I photo'd 45 dogs for Charleston Animal Society (just a fraction of their intake) and one very special dog for Southern Paws Animal Rescue (I'm sure her story will be on my Facebook page soon). Please always consider adoption as your first option.
March kicks off the start of the busy season and I’m so looking forward to spring sessions both in Charleston and in Northern VA. I am now booking for summer appointments here in the Lowcountry (late May through July) so if you want to work together, do get in touch!
