Can you even believe 2021 is now officially more than half over?
While I repeatedly try to convince myself I’m going to take a nice, lonnnnnng break, it hasn't yet worked out to be exactly when I plan it. But now my schedule feels like it's steadying and I’m committed to a breather after so many years at full-speed! I’m getting pretty excited for some self-imposed semi-downtime, including upcoming plans for a dolphin meet-n-greet, which has been a lifelong dream! June was a good month for me personally too, as I lapped the sun again, healthy and happy, and Jack and I celebrated our 20th anniversary with a fancy meal and a jet ski safari - so the month wasn’t ALL work! Looking forward to the next 20, Mr. Taylor! (Photo credit to our fantastic server, Chad! I don't post many photos with me in them but 20 years feels like an achievement!) :)
June was a fun work month though, with beautiful clients, then photos for a local dog-centric business, a yappy hour event, two portrait events with business partner pals, PickMe SC (the record-breaking statewide adoption campaign) and … THE RIBBON CUTTING CEREMONY FOR THE LONG-AWAITED, NEW BERKELEY ANIMAL CENTER!!!!! If you have never been to the OLD Berkeley Animal Center, you can't fully appreciate this new space or the limitations the staff had to deal with on a daily basis, with tired, outdated facilities much too small for the important work that needed to be done. And people really showed up for this event, y'all - there were stakeholders like county officials and the offshoot arms of the shelter (the Friends group and BAC Penny Paws) who have worked so hard to fundraise - staff, volunteers, adopters, fosters, media, and representatives from neighboring shelters like Charleston Animal Society and Dorchester Paws beaming with smiles! I was truly touched to see so much support and pride!

And here are just a couple of cuties from one of the portraits events for your enjoyment too :)
I also had the privilege of photographing several foster animals in June for Berkeley Animal Center. They have been doing such an amazing job of getting animals out of the shelter and into foster homes – then the fosters can bring them to me for photos if they want to get a little extra exposure for them. It’s a great team effort <3 and I’m happy to play my small part. Paid in dog kisses and kitty purrs? Yes, please! Here are some of the June cuties who came to visit (they have all since been adopted).
The when I arrived for one of my Tuesday photo days at Charleston Animal Society, I was surprised by this sweet gesture <3 - it now sits in my studio as a reminder that this work we do is appreciated.
There are so many moving parts to what I do – clients, adoptables at shelters, foster pets, working with small pet-related businesses, portrait events – I really do feel like it’s the best job ever! Time does fly though, and I encourage people to get on the schedule sooner than later as my calendar fills quickly. As of today (7/1/21), my first available weekend appointment is in September so if you are wanting to schedule and especially if you need a weekend, don't delay. (Please note - terminal pets will always be fit into the schedule though.)
Have a great summer – I’m sure planning/hoping to as well!
