We had an exciting photo session at the Santa Fe Animal Shelter a few weeks ago when Sybil's 7 puppies were finally ready for their close-ups. Several staff members showed up to assist. One lay on the floor in front of the bench and one was behind the bench to catch puppies as they tumbled to the floor. Two others corralled the puppies into the crate. I kept shooting. We had a lot of fun and these puppies are already on their way to new homes.

Almost every Friday, I go to the Santa Fe Animal Shelter and photograph the animals that are up for adoption. This week I got to work with puppies.

Like any smitten companion, I began taking pictures of her. Over time, these pictures began to reveal her unique personality and, in the process, I discovered that I love to photograph animals. I borrowed friends' dogs, I dressed them up, I took pictures. Each animal was different.
It seemed a natural progression that led me to the Santa Fe Animal Shelter. I visit there several times a month to photograph the animals who are waiting for forever homes. More than once, I've had the pleasure of witnessing the moment when a dog and it's companion-to-be fall in love and each time my heart breaks open.
Last year I opened my own pet photography business. I've photographed dogs, cats, rabbits, mice, horses, even snakes. The portraits I create honor an animal's character and unique personality. They reveal the deep connection a family shares with a pet.
In the months ahead, I'll be sharing these portraits in my blog and talking about the experience of making the images. I hope you enjoy it.
