October 2022 | Monthly Selections

This time of year, just looking at my calendar makes me realize how much coffee and Tylenol I will need to finish out the holiday season!

While I posted about this last go’around, I only sent my September email to SC folks so I’m adding here too for the VA clients who may have missed it on socials.

I had so much fun working on this spooktacular issue and it turned out great! Roux and Gracie had a blast "performing" too! As always, thanks to Lowcountry Dog for the opportunity. As you browse, be sure to read my piece on the All-American Shelter Dog!

As a PS - have you ordered your 2023 calendar yet from Lowcountry Dog, starring Gracie :) and so many others? You can do it here!

I had so many beautiful VA sessions in late September, but timing didn't work to post for last month so here are just a couple from my trip.

We celebrated Gracie’s adoptavery in October - 5 years already! We held to our tradition of delivering baked goods to Charleston Animal Society as a thank you and taking Gracie’s annual photo opp with staff. And while that photo always lands in her annual scrapbook, this one screamed to be shared worldwide! (Post-op jammies for the win!)

In early October, I attended the MUSC Blessing of the Dogs event and therapy dog calendar launch. It was a great turnout and several of the clinician and canine models were there to help promote the calendar. The power of the paw ...

I was invited back to a Yappy Hour at Island Cabana Bar last month - took some cute pics of costumed pups and just enjoyed a couple of hours on a pretty fall evening. Locals, this is a great casual spot for grabbing an iced bucket for even a coffee and just hanging out on the water – if you’ve never been, you should go!

And while I didn’t go for photos, I did attend a fundraiser for Hallie Hill Animal Sanctuary at the Queen Street Theatre – what a blast! It was a magician/illusionist’s performance with a side of schtick and my “date” and I had a great time!

I also had my last display event of the year at Fall Fest with the good folks at Mount Pleasant Towne Center. Towne Centre events are always well-organized with a great turnout! Bonus: Chip came to see us and that will always make my day perfect! (Don't let the cell phone angle fool you - he's a lanky boy and weighs 53 lbs now!!)

October was chock-full of client sessions too - here's a few representative shots from the month! Thankfully, the temps have normalized so everyone was generally more comfortable – and now I think people understand why I won’t shoot outdoor sessions here in July and August anymore :) You’re welcome!

 

(And there were still two more costumed doxies from this family!!)

We recreated this trio five and a half years later (well - same players - different positions :) .

Coming up, November looks like a 10 out of 5 on the crazy scale (in a good way, always) and Santa photos are right around the corner too! The ticket link went live on November 4 and it’s been buzzing with activity already, so don’t delay in registering your pet. Details via the event link notes below.

In October, I worked with Hallie Hill Animal Sanctuary, Charleston Animal Society, and Libby & Mace’s Place Rescue photo’ing adoptables or fosters. As of 10/31, my database shows 457 adoptables have graced my lens this year – and I am grateful for every single one I have met. (I even had some Catahoula foster babies this month!

Please be sure to check the event schedule below – if you can attend one of the photo fundraisers, please do as they help support our local rescues and shelters.

 I am sorry to say if you waited this long to inquire about a session to result in holiday card or gift images, and we aren’t already discussing a date/location, I won’t be able to accommodate you this year. My calendar typically fills about six weeks to two months out and once the dates are gone, that’s it. I will, however, always find space for terminal pets so if you find yourself in that situation, please contact me.
