City of Lethbridge Spring Photos

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

This is the second installment of photos for the City of Lethbridge, featuring my favorite season, spring! (You can see the first post, winter, back here.)

Last year we had a beautiful spring with warm weather and tons of blossoms, so taking photos was a breeze! Though we had a number of cloudy days, there were enough blue skies to offset them. (more…)

Rodeo | Helping Animals In Need

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

The work I have been doing with AARCS has been so rewarding, and almost all of the dogs I have photographed were almost immediately placed in homes! However, there is one exception: Rodeo still needs to find her forever home. I first saw her in February when she was just a puppy, so now that she is a little bigger she needed some updated photos. She’s still pretty cute and little, but she’s gotten a lot taller and grown out of those awkward big puppy feet. Such a sweetie!

Here is her adoption page if you are interested. :) (more…)

City of Lethbridge Winter Photos

Monday, March 26th, 2012

As I previously mentioned, last year I had a contract with the City of Lethbridge to take photographs for their new website. I had a great time always being on the look out for photo opportunities, and wanted to post my favorites, by season, throughout this next year! These aren’t necessarily photos they chose, but these are definitely the ones I liked best and wanted to share.

Even though it’s currently spring, the weather seems to say otherwise so I’ll start out with all of the snowy photos, some of which were taken in April anyhow ;) (more…)

Pokey and Rodeo | Helping Animals in Need

Thursday, February 16th, 2012


Camouflage dogs!

Another set of AARCS dogs who were available for adoption are brother and sister puppies Pokey and Rodeo, who live in Pincher Creek with their foster family. Photographing them was like working with little humans – they have so much energy when they are young so it takes lots of patience and chasing! I had to be careful not to get too close to the puppies because they thought that meant it was time for hugs, not posing for photos :) If it weren’t for my lens hood I would have had many nose prints on my glass! I’m so happy to announce that Pokey has already been adopted too! (more…)

Precious the Dog | Helping Animals in Need

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

More doggie goodness! Precious is another foster dog available through AARCS, and she currently lives in the Crowsnest Pass (I got to hang out with Precious, AND get fed by my mom – double win!). Precious was super mellow and laid back, and although she was a little shy, she was a sucker for hugs and pets. A lot of the foster homes don’t have good cameras, so before my photos the organization had assumed this dog was entirely black since she looked so dark via cell phone photos! People should not miss out on those cute spotted feet she has…

In other good news, these photos really do help the dogs immensely: Elvis had no inquiries before her photo shoot, but within half a month of making her a model, she’s been adopted! Yay!

Piper the Dog | Helping Animals in Need

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

Here is another adorable dog who is available through the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society. Piper is a curious puppy and was fun to take photos of – she wasn’t quite as hyper as most puppies are, so instead of running around, the only difficulty was in getting her to stop sniffing things and pay attention to us :) And she was so cuddly!
