For the Dogs

I haven't posted in a little while, which is not typical of me. If you are a friend of my photography on FaceBook, you have seen me posting a ton of dog photos lately. (No, I haven't given up on photographing people..ha-ha) The reason for all the dog photos in the last few weeks is because I am currently working on a fundraising calendar for Wish Bone Canine Rescue.
For those who have met me or know me well are very aware of my love of animals and pet photography. For the last 2 years I have worked with Paradise Pets capturing images of their foster dogs. This year I thought why not take a larger step and instead of just taking adoption photos, why not help a rescue raise money for all the dogs. So I presented a proposal and plan to the Vice President of the Wish Bone organization and she loved the concept.
We are almost done with the calendar photo sessions and will be spending November designing the actual calendar. The plan is to have the calendar available for purchase in time for the holidays.
I have had so much fun capturing all of the dogs unique personalities, meeting their owners/ foster families and hearing their individual rescue/adoption stories. This project has been a real blessing, it means a lot to me being able to help the dogs and the volunteers of Wish Bone.

Currently we are looking for calendar sponsorships to help defer some of the cost of printing. If anyone is interested please contact myself or Wish Bone Canine Rescue for more information.

Also if you are looking for a new canine companion please stop by and visit the wonderful dogs and volunteers of Wish Bone Canine Rescue at Petco (1700 E. College Ave.) in Normal, IL, this Sunday, November 13 from 12 pm to 3 pm. I am planning to stop in myself to drop off some photo session coupons, if you see me there make sure and say hello.

Till the calendar is ready enjoy a few of the images of these wonderful dogs!
