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!

Elvis the Dog | Helping Animals in Need

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

I am so excited to be volunteering with the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society. Showing off how cute the animals are plays a huge role in helping them get adopted, so I will now be visiting these dogs in their foster homes to take their photos!

Today I got to meet Elvis (or “Ellie”), and she was a total sweetheart who was full of energy. If you’re looking for a dog… *hint hint* (more…)

Kelsie & Heidi | Lethbridge Mother-Daughter Photos

Monday, October 31st, 2011

I always love photographing Kelsie! I haven’t seen her in a long time, so it was great to catch up and see her and her mom Heidi. They each brought their dogs, Jager and Trixie, who were super cute, and we spent some time on a very windy afternoon at the university pond – how their hair looks so still, I have no idea! :) (more…)

Coco the Doberman | Lethbridge Dog Portraits

Friday, August 26th, 2011

I just love doing dog portraits! The dog I had growing up was part Doberman and I think they are such a beautiful breed of dog, so I was thrilled to take photos of Karen’s “senior citizen” Dobie, Coco. Coco was super mellow and although she was a little stubborn at times, we got some great photos of her. Such a sweet dog! :) (more…)

Cassandra and Jax the Dog

Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

Cassandra is about to head out to the coast to attend dog training school, and since she needed a pal to bring along and learn with, she adopted Jax! He’s only a year old so he is exploding with energy, but even in her short time with him, he is already really starting to follow her cues; she is definitely going into the right program! He is so adorable, especially with the eye patch (too bad his little black mustache is fading). (more…)
