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.


Feel free to follow socials for updates (linked below) or you can subscribe to my mailing list (I only send one email per month). Upcoming events are also listed below - until next time!
