July 2018 Monthly Selections

I was so ready to take July off on the heels of a very busy few months! I sent my primary gear away for maintenance and Roux gave me permission to wind down a bit. I worked on orders and some other lingering projects but, otherwise, only shot my weekly rescue photos and encouraged Roux and Gracie to practice their mad modeling skills. I had day dates with my husband and visits with out of town guests. It was wonderful!

And this guy above (Jack while at CAS) is my new next door neighbor, now called Ashe :)

One of my favorite photos from July is part of a before/after -- when I first met Leib (below) on June 12 his skin was so raw, I just knew he ached all over. Six weeks later I updated his photos - LOOK AT THAT DIFFERENCE! This is what rescue is about and shows what TLC and proper care can do in a short period of time!

As of 7/31, I have photo'd 343 adoptables year to date. {sigh} SO.MANY.ANIMALS. #adoptdontshop #makemylifeeasier

In late July, I photo’d a very special adoptable dog at a local attraction where we had the most beautiful light and it made me count the days until my client sessions restart in August! Sweet Dixie is currently with Pet Helpers, available for adoption to a loving home - and she is so special that she has a social media team prepping a page just for her! Here's a sneak peek from her session.

This month, I came out of my lifelong shy-shell and gave a working presentation to a group of young animal advocates at the CAS Arts & Animals Camp. We talked about the importance of photos to shelter animals and then we went outside so the kids could take photos themselves, putting into practice the key points we had just discussed. They did a GREAT job and I was really happy to see such a large group of young people (23 kids) already working in support of shelter pets! I had them use a beat-up camera so they could understand it’s not WHAT tool you use, it’s HOW you use it. I posted an album with the kids' photos of the animals - you can view it here.



July meant the annual print issue of Mount Pleasant Pets magazine hit the stands and seeing my cover pic and editorial contribution continues to make me smile! The awesome publisher also hosted a Pets Only day on Lowcountry Live – I wasn’t able to make it in person due to a scheduling conflict, but you can see the playback here. I had some feature photos in the latest issue of Carolina Tails magazine this month as well - these are my two favorite local pet reads so be sure to check them out!

Truly, it’s baffling how time flies so fast – I'm already thinking about the schedule for holiday photo events! But first …

Roux and Gracie will BOTH be turning four the first week in August!!! I’ve had multiple shopping trips and have been planning out their individual cake smashes. Since their birthdays are separated by two days only, in future years we will probably do one “pawty” but, this year being Gracie’s first with us, I’ve decided they each get their own.


We hope everyone has had an amazing summer and made some beautiful memories.
