MEET DIESEL

We lost a real loved one last week. Diesel passed at age 13, he was SO loved by his mama Angie and he had the best life. I was so lucky to have spent some time with him during our shoot and then he laid on my lap afterwards while his mama and I talked for about 20mins. It reminded me how amazing my job is, if I can even call it that. Diesel was such a lover and I am so thrilled we captured these amazing smiles and goofy moments so that his mama can have them forever. forever missed Diesel xoxo 

BARKS OF LOVE GRAY MATTER MUSEUM EVENT

 

We had the pleasure of being asked to attend the Barks of Love Gray Matter Museum fundraiser bash! So many amazing people from the OC community came out to support this amazing dog rescue organization. We did mini session shoots at the event and part of the proceeds went straight back to Barks of Love. Our hearts melted when we photographed the sweet pups up for adoption that were there too. Scroll down to see these amazing a adoptable dogs and the fantastic highlight video they made. There are also more adoptable dogs on their website too! 

If you want to donate to Barks of Love you can here at their Go Fund Me. Also check them out on instagram @barksoflove 

 MEET CHAMP! He is a 5month old who was abandoned beacuse his back legs weren't working properly. He is getting stronger everyday now. He is so sweet and happy, and active! I had the best time meeting Champ.

 MEET DIAMOND! At only one year old, I found myself without a home. The angels at Barks of Love found me dining at the back entrance of Jack in the Box. I happily jumped into the car of my foster mom who soon learned that I had little puppies in my belly. As soon as my babies were born, everyone marveled at how nurturing and sweet I am as a mom. They weren't that surprised though because they say I am a very loving and snuggly girl. Since then my 9 puppies have all been adopted and now I'm two years old and still waiting for my forever home.

 MEET HOPE! I'm a 10 year old Chihuahua who was pulled from the shelter on my last day before euthanization. I was scheduled to be put down due to heart and lung disease as well as a slew of other medical problems. After being pulled and taken to the vet he theorized I was misdiagnosed and my illness was treatable! My bronchial disease can't be cured, but if I take my medication I'm okay! I stayed with my vet for a few weeks and he took such good care of me that I moved into foster care. Now I'm looking to go into my forever home, will you adopt me?

YOU MIGHT THINK BEING THE PHOTOGRAPHER FOR LA TRAVEL MAGAZINE'S MONTLY FEATURE WOULD BE THE HIGHLIGHT OF THIS SHOOT, BUT LET BE HONEST...
