Today we adopted out our long time resident with Ruff Patch, Snow. This is her 3rd adoption and it better last! I am sure going to miss her. She was such an amazing dog! I won’t lie, there were almost tears. But! I am so happy to see her go to such a wonderful home where she is going to have another doggy friend to play with! I love successful events!
It’s time to start blogging again. It’s been a long summer, and it’s not even over yet! I have been working hard to get the website looking semi-presentable and volunteering my heart out. While I am struggling to find things to get me motivated to blog, let’s start with Saturdays. Every Saturday I spend roughly 5 hours at Petco with Ruff Patch Rescue help with adoption events. Not only is it a great way to give back and help the dogs, but great time to get in some practice. I love getting to know the dogs and constantly trying to find creative ways to capture their personalities… at a Petco. Which can make it challenging at times, but so rewarding when I can make it work!
So here is Jewels. She is a 10 week-ish heeler puppy looking for her new forever home!
I volunteered for my first adoption event this Saturday and it was so much fun! We had six dogs get adopted, which was so rewarding to see them find new homes! The best part is I even got to sneak in some time to snap some pictures. I really look forward to helping more this summer!
Lately, my lectures seem to be telling me the same thing – to think ahead. At least that is the message I am taking from them. Too often I get caught up in the moment of what’s happening and I forget my visual language. I forget the elements I know that I need to make a good photograph. So with that said, I tried hard to keep these things in mind with my last shoot with Ruff Patch. I think this is one of my favorite photographs from the shoot. What do you think?
I have been soooo sick this week that thinking about blogging or taking a picture is the furthest thing from my mind 😦 Worst spring break ever. On the bright side, here’s a picture of Lilly. We are fostering her! She sure is great!
I’ve done it! Twice! I found out today that the UVU Woodbury Museum accepted two of my pieces into their show from March 26th to April 27th. This will be my first non class related art show. Yeah it’s still a student art show, but I am still thrilled! Here is what will be showing!
I want to talk more about photographing other people. I have always been quiet, and shy. I have struggled to come out of my shell around new people, and even worse, finding something to talk about. When I find someone who has a dog, all of that seems to melt away. For a while, I thought I was the only crazy dog lover out there. Oh, how I was wrong! I love taking those photographs of people with their dogs that make them look as crazy and happy with their dog as I feel with mine.
