WOW! I can’t believe how long my Winter hiatus has been for photographing adoptable dogs – Call it burnout, the winter blues, lack of motivation – but I am rested up now, Spring is right around the corner and I am ready to come back into the rescue world! I photographed a new round of adoptable dogs at KC PAWS and as soon as I made my first high pitched “doo dooo dooo” sound and got the head tilt, I knew I still had that gift to capture their souls. After I was done photographing the latest adoptables, I felt all warm and fuzzy and the reasons why I donate so much of my time to this cause all came back to me. As I sorted and edited the photos, each smile I captured also gave my heart a smile as well.
In case anyone wonders about the adorable flowers and bowties you see on these dogs, I am partnered with Kyndra Jade of Liks, LLC, who donates bowtie and flower collar accessories that give adoptable pets a touch of class to help them stand out even more. If you are a client, these products are usually given away with my mini sessions or anyone can purchase them from the Liks, LLC website.
Liks, LLC, focuses on finding and developing products for groomers to offer special touches to their boutique services that clients will notice. For my shelter and rescue friends, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if your rescue has some varying breeds who would like to be photographed while modeling some of Kyndra’s designs. The best part — the products that are modeled by the dogs will be donated to your shelter or rescue!

And in conclusion – Duke thought I was pretty hilarious during his photo session. Can you guess which joke I told him?
