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…)

Harvest of Hope Gala | Canadian Cancer Society

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

I recently had the privilege of photographing the Canadian Cancer Society’s Harvest of Hope Gala. This event was held at the Galt Museum and featured local celebrities who waited tables for the night to raise money, including Clint Dunford, Marty Baceda, and David Rossiter. It was so much fun to photograph such a diverse group of individuals who all contribute so much to the community.
