June, 2019 Monthly Selections

June + Charleston = HOT.

For summer, I try to scale back and schedule mornings only. Otherwise, with the afternoon heat, it becomes increasingly difficult for the dogs to keep their tongues in place for more than the first three minutes! That being said, I did have a few outdoor client sessions and we wrapped up the Top 6 Cover Dog winners from the Charleston Animal Society contest in May/June. This effort raised over $5K that will be applied to Toby’s Fund, which supports the medical expenses at CAS. To all who participated through fundraising or donating, thank you! I am especially happy to say that our Gracie was one of the top fundraisers, so a very sweet image with her daddy will hang in the adoption area for a year (especially meaningful to me since that's where her story with our little family began). Look at the love she has for her daddy!

Possibly my most special session in June was with Thelma, a one-year old rescued Viszla with an “invisible disorder” so severe (bubbles in her lungs) and incurable that we just don’t know what her future holds. She is making the most of her time though, as a loving family pet, and a working dog, as she visits schools with her dog-ma, a vet tech from Veterinary Specialty Care. (The longer version of her story is viewable on my Facebook page.) I continue to send all my best to Thelma (and her humans)!

And I surely don't want to gloss over Macy's 10th birthday celebration! This beautiful Maltese enjoyed a shoot with balloons, a cake, her sister and her loving paw-rents! I'll post a smiling photo here but her celebration photos will hit my socials in the near future!

In addition to my weekly sessions at CAS, I visited Hallie Hill Animal Sanctuary with the VSC Outreach Manager, who had suggested we take a field trip for photos one day. And so we did! Hallie Hill has something like 150 animals in their custody, some on-site, some in foster homes. The day we went, we were able to preview the beautiful property and, thankfully, setup indoors for some studio photos of 22 dogs awaiting loving homes. As a sanctuary, they commit to an animal's care for life, but that doesn’t mean we should forget about them – they have PLENTY out there who are highly adoptable. Visit for more information.


June gave me 62 adoptables to shoot and I have now photo’d 384 adoptables as of 6/30. #adoptdontshop {sigh}

The Mount Pleasant Pets Magazine for 2019-20 is now available digitally, with printed copies coming soon. This issue was so much fun for me, as it not only included photo work, but also I had the opportunity to author a couple of pieces, including a Q&A with the rescue dogs of Dean Felber and his family (who you may recognize from Hootie & The Blowfish). Give it a read!

Lastly, it may seem silly since it's 300 degrees out, but I am starting to plan for my fall trip to Northern VA and for Santa/holiday photos here in the Lowcountry! We have our first date set for November 23 at Woof Gang Bakery in Mount Pleasant so mark your calendars – attending this one means you will have your digital image(s) with more than enough time to procrastinate your holiday cards, gifts, etc., and STILL get them done before Christmas!

Scheduling Note: I have made a change to the way I schedule so, effective July 1, I will only schedule a max of four full client sittings per month (NOT INCLUDING terminal or geriatric pets, or those with a difficult diagnosis who are maybe undergoing chemo). I will continue my weekly rescue photos, as shelter photography is a work of my heart. And I will, of course, continue working with two of the top pet magazines in the lowcountry. My hope is this adjustment will allow me to pursue some personal projects as well! Fingers crossed!

Until next time, stay cool!
