August 2021 | Monthly Selections

August is a big deal around these parts as I am the ONLY one in our house WITHOUT an August birthday!

My month was a collection of several of my main activities: client pets, adoptables, commercial and magazine work.  As I type this, I’m looking past my screen at the wall calendar for the next three months and it is chock full of photo opportunities for your pets! But before we look forward, let’s take a peek back at August.

I spent a fun morning working with sweet Rambo and his people. This ball-obsessed boxer has been with his family since he was a wee pup, even surviving the wrath of Hurricane Sandy with them in 2012 when they lost their home.  Rambo is in the "winding-down" phase and his people wanted to capture some moments while he was still feeling well and looking amazing.  He was a great guest for sure!

I had the privilege of writing an article discussing the benefits of pets for PTSD sufferers. Side bonus: photo'ing the veteran with his support dog, Sadie. You can read the article here.

One very warm August morning I met up with Stella Artois (which just happens to be my beer of choice too!) and her dog-ma at a local park to document their relationship. They have been together for a few years now and were so beautifully connected! Stella was adopted about five years ago as part of the beer litter through Palmetto Paws Animal Rescue - and as an entertaining side note, she has her own hashtag: #sausagesecurity


I am working on the “Silver Harness Project” for a harness manufacturer and was able to recruit dogs from both Hallie Hill Animal Sanctuary and Berkeley Animal Center as models. A couple of photos follow – the company then generously donates the harnesses and leashes to the participating shelter/rescue!

Before I left for a quick trip to FL, I had the sheer joy of working with two GORGEOUS springer spaniel babies and their amazing dog-ma, who also happens to own local independent pet store Hairy Winston in Mount Pleasant.  Can you imagine being chosen to be her dogs?! JACKPOT!

Rescue and shelter work continued, of course, and my list of adoptables photo’d this year through 8/31 totaled 350 – 28 in August and that’s with me missing two weeks of shelter trips! Sharing just a few special cases here:

Star, a stunning four-month old puppy found with her ear intentionally sliced off and chemical burns across her body. Berkeley Animal Center

Bonnie, a beautiful four-month old feral-kitten-turned-housecat-wannabe. Berkeley Animal Center

Petunia, a sweet little girl saved from a hoarding situation. Berkeley Animal Center

Yoshi, a beautiful senior who found herself homeless through no fault of her own. Dorchester Paws

Luciano, just because he’s adorable and inexplicably still awaiting adoption! Charleston Animal Society

The next quarter brings several events for pet photos with a fundraising component so please be sure to check out the links below and follow for updates on socials or subscribe – I only send one email per month and you can certainly unsubscribe any time!

Fall is approaching and winter will be here before we know it! If you have been thinking of scheduling, I always suggest reaching out sooner than later as my calendar fills pretty quickly!

Lastly, the voting is open for the Best of Mount Pleasant - I have been honored to receive this the last four years, which is unprecedented in this category so I'm certainly grateful. If you'd like to cast a vote for this year, please do - no pressure! They do ask that you vote in 15 categories to make it count.
