May, 2019 Monthly Selections
Summer season kicked-off this month with my Virginia spring sessions in early May (read also: Gracie’s first trip to VA to meet our friends!), and EVERY.SINGLE.ONE of these sessions (13, I believe?) was an absolute delight! I met and photo’d repeats, along with new fur-babies, several little humans and updated photos for a couple of equine friends. I can’t share from each session here as this page would go on FOREVER but a few representative session photos follow. As it is, it's going to be a long page so grab your iced tea and get to scrolling!
When I came back, I buckled down to start editing, but also had some very cool opportunities related to both Mount Pleasant Pets and Carolina Tails Magazines. While I can’t share the images yet (it’d be awful to scoop them, wouldn’t it?!), I’m excited for both of their drop dates this summer. The latest edition of Mount Pleasant Magazine did come out though,and I’m happy to share my cover image below of a lovely Mount Pleasant family including their furries, Bandit and Smokey, and a powerful story to tell. I’m also excited about both of the upcoming issues as they include a couple of my authored articles as well!
Although the rest of May had been blocked for edits and orders, I did have another beautiful session at a very private property locally. It was during our recent heat wave when the temps raged in the low 100s for several days in a row so we went early and thankfully there was PLENTY of shade.
And, of course, Roux and Gracie needed a fun summer photo for their scrapbooks!
Shelter trips went off without a hitch and I photo’d 60 dogs in May for Charleston Animal Society, Dorchester Paws and Pet Helpers, even after missing a week due to my travel. I don’t know if people realize just how many animals are in shelters.
Finally, late May also meant the kickoff for the 2019 Cover Dog Contest for Charleston Animal Society. I decided to enter Gracie since the fund this contest supports (Toby's Fund) is what covered her lifesaving heartworm treatment. The top six fundraisers will win a session or mini-session, and we will choose a resulting family photo from each set to hang as an oversized print in the adoption area for a year. If Gracie is among the top six winners, I will photo her, Roux and Jack and then every week when I’m doing shelter photos I’ll see them smiling in the adoption area! My favorite part of this project is that it gives the adoptable dogs images of happy families to enjoy in their living space while they await families of their own. If you’d like to skip a Starbucks and vote for Gracie, you can click here. Every little bit helps – if you’d rather browse the contestants and vote for someone else, that’s cool too! Last year we raised over $7K with this fundraiser and they set a higher goal this year, with a shorter timeframe so please VOTE! Even $5 makes a difference, truly! My donated value works out to be about $1800 – totally worth it to know the good this will do for so many furry faces!
Until next time, stay cool!
