September, 2019 Monthly Selections
Well, hello fall! Or as we call it here in SC, "Second Summer." We made it through Hurricane Dorian unscathed and September moved along, business as usual, with a couple of plot twists!
Big news -- Veterinary Specialty Care's new emergency and specialty care facility officially opened September 16 and I am so pleased to see my work hanging throughout this beautiful 15,000+ sf hospital, which is a much-needed and much-appreciated addition to the area! I wish them all the success in the world and am thankful to know they are so close to our home should we ever need their services.
Also in mid-September, I did a thing. I'm not someone who has ever sought to be or enjoyed being front and center, but when my publisher from Mount Pleasant Pets Magazine invited me to participate in a local Pet Day event on ABC's Lowcountry Live, I had no valid excuse to get me out of it. And although I had a LOT of anxiety about live television, the host couldn't have been any sweeter and I was surrounded by friendly faces that I know from the local pet community, so I survived. Knowing I was anxious (for weeks), he told me I'd be fine as soon as I was talking about what I love, which is my client work and my shelter photography. And he was right. You can view the segment videos from Pet Day here, if you like.
(And if you think I have earned it and you'd like to vote me in as Best Pet Photographer for this year, by all means, please do!)
In preparation for an upcoming Carolina Tails issue, I had the pleasure of working with a beautiful Dogue de Bordeaux (you don't see many of those around here) and her new little sister, but I can't scoop the story so you'll just have to wait for the winter issue!
I spent a fun-filled Saturday afternoon with my business pals at Park Pets Park Circle, helping them celebrate the store's second anniversary in the community! Please, folks, #SHOPLOCAL whenever you can! With an in-store studio setup and a quick offer for guests, I photo'd some adorable dogs and spent my down time snuggling Eunoia Rescue's adoptable puppies, who were on-site too. I donated half of the day's sitting fees to Eunoia Rescue and almost all of their puppies were adopted that weekend so it was a solid weekend for them! Pictured here is Murphy, a Cavalier puppy - you can follow him on Instagram - @murphloaf
I spent a steamy morning with a lovely young couple and their three rescued dogs and a couple of very senior kitties. One of the pups is pictured here - Morgan - a Lab/Weimeraner mix - sweet, sleek, agile, gorgeous. Their others are also beautiful animals but, in the interest of time and your scrolling patience, here's just a sneak peek.
September also gave me the chance to meet up with 12-year old Pomeranian, Chloe, and her dog-ma, with their session being a very thoughtful birthday gift from Chloe's dad.
I worked with two adorable rescue dachsunds, Willy and Gracie ... you can follow their antics on Instagram - @WillyandGracie2.
And, finally, I wrapped up my month with a family session for a beautiful couple and their three dogs, as they prepare to say goodbye to Charleston and ship off to Virginia in continued service to the US Navy.
My shelter work in September was busy with 73 adoptables, bringing my YTD total through 9/30 to 559 (in 2018, my annual total was 560 so I cringe to think of what this number will be by December 31). As always, big thanks to my handlers - you all are amazing and I don't know what I would do without you! #adoptdontshop
Promos are underway for the 2019 holiday photo fundraising season! There is only one public access event currently scheduled with Santa (11/23 at Woof Gang Bakery in Mount Pleasant) so we hope to see you there!
This week the red dogs and I head to Northern VA for my annual fall sessions (and some time for friend-visits!) and I'm sure hoping to come back to slightly cooler temps and maybe just a little bit of fall color!
