I was thrilled to be able to use my skills to photograph rescue dogs recently and I look forward to doing more of this type of work.
Recently contacted by one of my neighbors about photographing some rescue dogs that she was fostering.
I couldn’t say no to the opportunity to use my skills to help an animal get adopted especially once I heard Sandy’s story.
Sandy is a 14-year-old Shih Tzu that was recently surrendered to a shelter when her owners were no longer able to care for her. In fact, they hadn’t been able to care for her in a very long time. Sandy hadn’t been groomed or had medical care and was in pretty bad shape when she was rescued. As you can imagine, going from a long time home to a shelter was very traumatic for her and now she is in a foster home. Sandy’s foster mom tells me that she improves every day.
I had Sandy stop by the studio for a pre-session visit so she would be familiar with the surroundings when it came time for her session. Sandy was curious and sniffed around (I have 3 dogs and a cat) for a while. On the day of her actual session, she must have known it was camera time because she was very nervous and scared.
While in her photos you can tell she is nervous, that didn’t stop her new parents one bit. I was pleased to find out that Sandy had been adopted the very next day. That makes it all worth while.
Best wishes sweet Sandy!
