When Carly & Ana told me that they were incorporating their dogs into their wedding, I immediately threw a contract in their face and said “BOOK ME FOR THIS WEDDING” because ohmygosh doesn’t a wedding with dogs sound like heaven?
One of the things I wanted to do to honor my pup Kirby who passed away last year was to work with a rescue organisation in his name. To that end I've been working with Forgotten Dogs Rescue for the past six months, attending their adoption events and also doing one on one portrait sessions with some of their pups.
One of the things I said I'd do in my quest to "be the person your dog thinks you are" is to volunteer with a local shelter or rescue. When we were in touch about adopting a dog from them I also asked Forgotten Dogs Rescue if they needed any photography, since I don't have a whole lot of their skills to offer.
For the first time in a good few years, it snowed in Seattle this past week. Enough for it to actually lie on the ground I mean. But of course by the next day it was gone, gone, gone. Which made going up to Vancouver to shoot a family portrait session for Jasmine and her family all the better because they had a TON of snow!
The best part was watching her pups Zephyr and Woody run around in it, poor Woody was barely bigger than the snow was deep so it was a lot of effort for him to charge around and keep up with Zephyr. In between their mad dashes we were able to get some cute images and once everyone confirmed that they couldn't feel their fingers any longer we headed back inside for some hot cocoa.
