November, 2019 Monthly Selections

Once the holiday season rolls around, it’s crunch time for me!

I was thinking if I did an annual report (like organizations and corporations do), my 2019 would look like this through the end of November:

  • Met and photo’d award-winning country music stars Dan + Shay
  • Met and photo’d Dean Felber (Hootie and the Blowfish) and his beautiful family for feature article
  • Multiple magazine covers (across four local publications)
  • Multiple articles authored with feature photos (across three magazines)
  • Artist display at City Center for 2nd year in a row (now asked to display for two months in 2020)
  • Celebrated seven years as Artist Member with HeARTs Speak
  • Outfitted the walls of the new 15,000 sf. Veterinary Specialty Care hospital in Summerville with 40+ pieces of large wall art
  • Image requested for use by Rachael Ray! (kinda cool - see screenshot below)
  • Photos used on billboards as part of Subaru’s “Make a Dog’s Day” campaign
  • Interview segment on ABC’s LowCountry Live 2019 Pet Day
  • Named Best Pet Photographer, Best of Mount Pleasant 2019 (awarded for 2nd year in a row)
  • Finalist, Award of Excellence, Dog Writers Association of America - winners to be announced February 2020 so we'll see!
  • Raised several thousand dollars (approaching 10K) through photo projects and fundraisers to benefit local rescues and shelters
  • Two Northern Virginia trips for client photos
  • 420 volunteer hours tracked to local shelters and rescues through 11/30/19
  • 642 adoptable animals photo’d through 12/4/19 (and that's with November being a VERY light month)
    • and let’s please not forget awesome client sessions each month.

So when I go on vacation in a couple of weeks, I will KNOW that I earned it!

People often remark about how busy I am – and it’s true, I am always doing SOMETHING - but about 20-25% of my time is spent volunteering. As a side note, for all of the supporters who love my rescue work (as I do!), my client work is what allows me to continue to do it. So if you are ready to update your pet’s photos, or if you have never done this but have been thinking about it, let’s get you scheduled in 2020. My rates are so very affordable, and I offer rescue, military and LEO discounts and credits, so there is no reason not to schedule your pet’s close-up.

In November, I had a pop-up photo event at Out of Hand in Mount Pleasant, with half the sitting fees donated to Hallie Hill Animal Sanctuary. We had a lovely fall set, and I met some wonderful people on a beautiful day! A couple of sample pups follow ...

Sessions continued with my Bandit's Legacy program, particularly meaningful as we just passed our five-year anniversary of his passing. Client appointments also included two sessions of beautiful dog-mas with their furry kids, a horse session (LOVE!), two brother bichons with their humans on vacation here from Charlotte NC (can't post yet), and we rounded out the month with this year's only public access Santa event.

11/23 Santa Event Stats - thanks to Woof Gang Bakery in Mount Pleasant for hosting and making it a fun event for the humans too!

  • Dogs/Puppies: 96
  • Cats/Kittens: 2
  • Kids/Babies: 13
  • Adults: 19
