September and October 2021 | Monthly Selections
Last month I had to bounce sharing my beautiful September clients in favor of a post about my [now former] foster pup, Chip (sorry!). So this month, I’m trying to cover two months of activity - please bear with me - I’ve actually compiled images into a video so maybe it won’t be as painful or time consuming for you to scroll!
Lowcountry Dog Magazine had the crazy-clever idea to do a spin on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – but with bulldogs for their October issue. So, using several puppers from Bullies to the Rescue, we had a greenscreen shoot and some of the magazine pages were transformed into a comic book feature with fantastic results. You can check it out here. Special thanks to the amazingly rescue-friendly folks at Pet Supplies Plus – Goose Creek for letting us use their community area for the sittings.
Other magazine work included shooting the MUSC Therapy Dogs for an upcoming issue of a local lifestyle magazine but since it’s not out yet, I will wait to share any of those images - but what a pleasure to meet so many awesome dogs and their handlers!
Special Projects and Events
October gave me the opportunity to shoot the winners for the 2nd year of Rescue Brew, an impressive fundraiser for Charleston Animal Society. The resulting images were then translated to a graphic design that will become the beer can wrap (which will be ready for sale in March 2022). This year’s winners were Sirri (cat) and Pippen (dog) but I have to give a shout out to the 2nd and 3rd place dogs too, Shem Schucany and Duke O’Shea – both of whom are recent photo clients of mine and who really helped drive up the total fundraising! Maybe next year, guys!
I had a great time with my new friends at Meeting Street Lofts too, a luxury apartment community downtown that boasts a seriously pet-friendly culture! We had an event on-site where Berkeley Animal Center brought adoptables and I photo’d quite a few of the resident pets on a studio drop (like beautiful Bella here) - pets ranged in size from small to extra large! We had so much fun with our host and look forward to another event in the future!
Then in October there was Woofstock, a music festival hosted by Lowcountry Dog Magazine. It was a long day but we had an awesome time as vendors, as well as just enjoying the music, food trucks and the company of our nearby booth rescue friends! Oh, and … FORMER FOSTER BABY CHIP CAME TO SEE US and it was the first time we had seen him since he was adopted! :)
I shot a Yappy Hour event at the Cabana Bar in Charleston. This low-key, pet-friendly, waterside bar also offers great views of the Ravenel, so grab your pup and head to the Cabana Bar for a bucket of Island beer and some beautiful sunset views!
In late October, we had a booth at Mount Pleasant Towne Centre's Fall Festival - it was a gorgeous day and the event was incredibly well-attended! Annnnnd Chip came to that too! He didn't enter the costume contest but he is easily the cutest sloth that ever was! :) Every time I see him I'm so glad we took the leap and fostered <3
Adoptables and Fosters
MOOD SHIFT. I don’t even know where to begin with this. Our shelters are bursting at the seams, running over capacity every single day. I trudge on, shooting adoptables every week at one shelter at a minimum, sometimes two, and foster pets as requested. Something has to change with the way companion animals are managed. It’s exhausting just trying to keep up. I'm at 457 adoptables photo'd this year and we have two months to go.
in September, Rosie (remember Rosie?!) and I celebrated our one-year anniversary of meeting <3 and falling in love :) Her photo with her dog-ma is in the video linked below.
Speaking of anniversaries, October meant it was time to celebrate our Gracie’s 4th adoptaversary!!!!
I had some gorgeous clients in October, everything from a human baby with her pitbull to an established family actually creating their first set of family photos! My month included repeat clients and new ones – even a set of human triplets (a first for me!).
The compiled video from September and October client sessions can be viewed below. I know it’s not the highest quality video but it was the easiest, quickest way to get images together for this month’s mailout!
And let me not forget to leave you with one final image - American Dog-thic | Halloween 2021!
We are now officially in the holiday pet photo event season, which means my world is EVEN MORE bananas for the next several weeks so the fact that this mailout is getting done is a miracle!
