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!

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.
