A Lunch Out With Frankie

While I was in Louisiana visiting family I got a text from my sister with a picture of this sad faced little bulldog saying, "Frankie wants to meet you". So my Mom and I went to met Frankie and my sister for lunch. Frankie belongs to my sister's boss and he goes to work with his owner everyday, greeting everyone that comes into the office.
Of course after seeing his adorable little face in that text message, I couldn't resist bringing my camera along to get a few photos of my own. It was fun getting to spend a little time playing and capturing Frankie's unique personality.

I hope Mike and Eva enjoy these. Thanks for letting me photograph Frankie.

Wish Bone Canine Rescue- Sneak Peek

I know it's been a while since I have posted. I promise are very good reasons. First reason, I have been editing and wrapping up client work for the year before my trip home to Louisiana. Second is that I have been working on a project and this time it's not a personal project. So, everyone who knows me knows that I am a huge softy for animals. Well I decided to take what I had been doing before with taking photos of rescue dogs to a whole new level. I sat down one day and wrote a business proposal for a local dog rescue called Wish Bone Canine Rescue to create a 2012 calendar. This proposal involved taking photos, finding sponsors to ease the cost of printing and designing the calendar.
A3 you probably guess by a previous posting, Wish Bone said yes. They joined in to help by assigned volunteers to help with identifying sponsors and driving dogs to locations for photo sessions. While searching for sponsors the volunteers were contacted by a local print company called StarNet Digital Publishing wanting to assist with the printing.
Well as I type this today, I can't seem to express my excitement. It's has truly been an amazing day!!! I was able to pick up the proof and see all that work come together for the first time in printed form. Tonight, my husband Chris is making minor adjustments and tomorrow the printing starts.
This project has been a truly amazing experience. Something that started with just an idea and watching it evolve into this incredible event that has brought people and local businesses together, all to help local dogs get the care they's truly a blessing.
Through the whole process, getting to know the family of volunteers and fosters that work with the Wish Bone organization and meeting all the dogs in the calendar (and those up for adoption) has been wonderful for me and my family.  My son and I also now volunteer on adoption days as well as photographing new adoptable dogs that come into Wish Bone. If you want to help out, Wish Bone can always use volunteers or even foster families for dogs waiting for their homes. Check them out online.

Also, if you are looking for a gift for someone this holiday season and you would like to pre-order a calendar please contact Wish Bone Canine Rescue.

Here is a peek at what the calendar looks like.
