Spring is always a great time for photos but, for some reason, April was particularly packed with awesomeness.
A sweet senior girl, Brinks, almost 14, and her picture-perfect dog-ma met me for photos to commemorate their lifelong relationship. She is her dog-ma’s first kid, her BFF, and they were so lovely together. What is especially endearing about their session is that it was a gift from the husband, who recognized the incredible bond these two have and knew how meaningful photos would be to his wife. Score: Husband for the WIN!
I had a great sitting with the winning bidder for a silent auction package (that benefitted Carolina Coonhound Rescue) including a CCR alum, Sylias, and her secondhand, beautiful Border Collie, Lady.
I worked closely with the team at Southern Paws Animal Rescue every week photo’ing eight newborn pups (and will continue to for a few more weeks to come!). When they are ultimately ready for adoption, their new families will have the opportunity to view their documentary photos and purchase them for their own keepsakes (with 100% of the net going to support their care while they were in rescue). It isn't often that you adopt a puppy and are able to see their history from birth until they join your family, which makes this extra special
I met a number of amazing families for photos as a part of the Charleston Animal Society cover dog fundraiser, which raised over $7,000!
And of course, CAS adoptable photos continued on their weekly schedule as did each week’s episode of “Travis Loves The Ladies”.
I had an email from Pet Helpers, a local no-kill rescue facility, asking for assistance as their primary volunteer photographer is about to leave the area. They have some special case pets who needed a little boost so we did a glam-day for them and, by all accounts, everyone had a good time (well, everyone except the cats, I think). Just a few of their photos follow.
I photo’d a total of 50 adoptable animals in April. Please help lighten my load - ALWAYS consider adoption as your first option.
At our City community center, I had an Artist Display during April entitled “Faces of Rescue”, which included 13 pieces, all pets saved from a rescue or shelter and who went on to join loving families – some even went on to have a career as a therapy dog - or a commercial model!
Not to be forgotten, there were two wonderful sessions the last weekend in March, both at my happy place: THE BEACH! They weren't edited in time for my March mailout, but they do deserve to be seen! There was Merlot and her dog-ma both of whom are getting ready to celebrate milestone birthdays this summer ... (collage can be viewed larger on Facebook)
... and The "K" family from Michigan. In a couple of hour overlap where all of their family members were in the same place at the same time, we snapped some casual and lovely family photos at Wild Dunes, like this one, below.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST -- Gracie celebrated her six-month adoptaversary with us (marked by her first family vacation) AND [insert drum roll] we also learned she is now officially heartworm negative!
Hoping Mother Nature is cooperative this week as I head to Northern VA for spring sessions there!
