Paws in the Park, Santana Row

Last weekend, I successfully worked a pet rescue event without coming home with another dog! After the last one I came home with 2, bringing our household dog total up to 3. It was a beautiful, albeit warm day at Santana Row in San Jose, and dogs and dog lovers were swarming about the event which included raffles, dog fashion shows and contests, and most importantly opportunities to rescue and adopt an orphaned dog. I got some fun shots and even won a raffle gift basket, much to the delight of my pack as they fought joyfully over the Tuff Bone toy.  The event was a benefit for Furry Friends Rescue and the Santa Cruz Humane Society, and while it wasn't as largely attended as in the past due to the heat, some dogs were fortunate to find their new forever families.

awww, puppy love...

well, there just aren't words... definitely a fashion statement!

Lucky Me

This lifestyle session was so much fun from start to finish, it reminded me what I love best about what I do -capturing precious moments that show who people really are, the relationships that make life so meaningful, and the joy that comes from having a record of that in a timeless portrait. The shoot initially was intended to capture some lifestyle shots of Christi for her PR promoting her book LUCKY ME, A Children's Guide to Animal Companionship and Safety. We captured Christi and so much more, including the love and laughter in her real life home. Rocky, the star of the book, also was quite a star of the shoot, though he had very tough competition from his human sister Sophie Jane!
