As so many of you know, I love animals! One of the things I started delving into last year, was using photography as another way to help out rescues! I've been photographing my dogs for as long as I can remember, but it's a whole different ballgame when you start photographing dogs (and cats) who aren't yours. And even trickier still, is photographing a dog who has just come into a rescue who has had very little training!! It certainly can be a challenge, but it is one I wholeheartedly enjoy!! We are such a visual society these days and a good image will grab your eye much faster than words will. The words will certainly grab hold of your heart once you start reading about some of these animals who are looking for homes, but a good image is an attention getter for sure!
In an effort to both raise funds for one of the rescues that I volunteer for and to promote the adoptable dogs, I partnered with Brookline Labrador Retriever Rescue and Kitty Junction. This first started out as pet photos with Santa back in November and December. Since the photo sessions went over so well, we decided to set up some sessions for Valentine's Day! We really had no idea if we'd get any customers in, so we were pleasantly surprised when we had bunches come on in to have their pet's photo taken!! I also got the chance to photograph some sweethearts who are available for adoption (or will be very soon)! Below are some of our Valentine's:
Look for us again in March for our Lucky Dog photos!
