Caddy Shoot Take 1

I named this posting "Take 1" because I fell in love with so many of the images from this shoot I was unable to narrow it down to my usual 4-6 images. If your ever near Odell/Dwight in central Illinois you should stop in and check out these old Route 66 gas stations. I hope everyone enjoys these and keep and eye out for "Take 2".

Thanks to Steve-o for letting me use the '60 for this shoot.
Thanks to Malcolm, Miss Jessie Orrick, and my son Armond for putting up with me out in the cold for these images.

Paradise Pets Foster Dogs

At the beginning of the month I posted about a cute little dog named Lilli and the challenge put forth by a mentor ("Lilli the Wonder Dog") to go out and give something back to a not for profit organization. This past weekend I went to Paradise Pets and photographed the other dogs fostered there for Central Illinois Small Animal Rescue (CISAR). It was a lot of fun spending time with these wonderful dogs and hearing their stories from Kathy, the owner of Paradise Pets.
If your looking for a great dog to add to your family please stop by and meet these guys for yourself. Also if your looking for a truly wonderful doggie daycare in Bloomington, IL stop in, take a tour and meet the staff at Paradise Pets.



BB- this little guy could be Mojo's baby brother


Eve- such an adorable face.

Lenny- don't let his looks decieve you, he's a loveable guy.




Ziggy- this big guy stole my son's heart (and secretly mine too).

The Jackson Family

I really had a blast spending time with the Jackson family. These boys had me laughing so hard that I had to pause between pictures to dry my eyes. They are in so many ways a gifted and blessed family. Our goal for the day was to show those gifts as well as capture the love they share as a family. I hope everyone enjoys these as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Daisey and Dharma

Last Saturday I got to spend some time with two very special girls, Daisey and Dharma. Dharma and Mojo were rescued from the same puppy mill and travelled to Illinois together. These two were really inseperable the whole time we were there to take photos.
Daisey is an very impressive girl. In the time I have known her I have never seen her miss catching a ball or toy.
I had a great time hanging out and taking photos!

Lilli The Wonder Dog

A mentor put a challenge out for all the other photographers that follow him. The challenge was for us to go out and give our services away to a not for profit organization. I selected the doggie daycare Mojo goes to called Paradise Pets. Yes, I know this is not a not for profit organization however they do foster dogs for the Central Illinois Small Animal Rescue (CISAR). Through out this month I will be photographing the dogs that are fostered by Paradise.
Yesterday I brought Lilli home with me to do her photoshoot. Lilli is an adorable and energetic Jack Russell Terrier. Whom ever chooses to adopt this little girl will always know they are loved. Lilli loves to play and investigate everything but most of all she loves to snuggle. She was challenging to photograph but a whole lot of fun at the same time. I hope everyone enjoys these photos!

If you are considering adopting a new dog please check out foster dogs at Paradise Pets, you won't be disappointed.
