March was so interesting! And busy! And COLORFUL! I met some wonderful clients and had some very special opportunities so let’s “dive in” with a few representative session photos, shall we?!
That tongue though!
There were publishings (that will drop soon so I will wait to post until next month). And there was hob-knobbing with grammy winners, Dan + Shay. (This was SO.MUCH.FUN!) Click here to view the album from a BTS visit we had with them and some stress-relieving puppies and dogs from Charleston Animal Society. Then there was a brush with a local canine celebrity, Bandit, and his children’s author dog-ma. My new fur-iend Bandit (below) was the inspiration for the book, Dogs, a sweet project that will benefit CAS in part. You can click here to view/order the book via Amazon. (Disclaimer: these are not my photos in the book, but I am sharing because I believe in this project.)
There was also a session for a start-up pet service company in Summerville (which was a blast!) but it would be a spoiler to share her photos before she launches!
I photo'd a couple of long-term fosters for two (new-to-me) Boxer breed rescues (Carolina Boxer Rescue and The Boxer Transfer Network), along with ongoing work with Charleston Animal Society, Dorchester Paws, PetHelpers and Southern Paws Animal Rescue in March. By March 31st, 190 adoptables had already sat for photos with me so far in 2019. Please #adoptdontshop
And now, a sad note. Late on the evening of the 30th, a friend texted about his friend, whose beloved dog had spent the day in the ER with a possible difficult outcome. So early the next morning, I met him, the dog-ma and the beautiful black lab on Sullivans Island where we spent some time at their home and on the beach. Their relationship was special, that was clear. When I was done with photos and heading home, my heart broke for them both and, yes, I cried. I learned today he went on ahead to the Bridge on Tuesday, and I send my most sincere sympathy to his dog-ma and all of his friends, of which I’m sure there are many. In addition to just being a sweetheart, he served as a member of the MUSC Therapy Dog Team and I'm sure brought joy and comfort to countless patients and staff.
Sweet Drummer, it was an honor to meet you. Rest in peace.
Hug your pets a little tighter, go for a longer walk, and just enjoy your moments. Our time together is truly precious.
