I haven’t featured any adorable animals on the blog lately so how about I fix that, eh? Meet sweet miss Daisy! Daisy’s lovely mom Brooke is a fellow ARF volunteer and has many rescue pups at home but Daisy was the one that started it all, stealing her heart and becoming her #1 girl. These […]

The Saga of Leela's Stick, Mobile AL

Leela has a nice, thick stick in the backyard that she’s been working on for a few weeks now. Occasionally Max decides he wants a turn with the stick but Leela usually isn’t too keen on sharing it. This morning was no different.

We have been busy busy busy at the Animal Rescue Foundation lately! A big hoarding situation was broken up and 22 sweet little souls were put into our care, and a litter of the cutest rottweiler/spaniel mixes you’ve ever seen arrived at our facility as well. Along with the regular drop offs, returns, and dogs […]

Time for the monthly adoptable pups round-up! Here’s just a few of the sweet babies I photographed this past month that are so, so deserving of a furever home.

I thought I’d do a little throw back Thursday here on the blog today with these super adorable senior yorkies, Tucker and Wheeler! I had SUCH a blast working with this wonderful family. Shortly before Christmas, their mom contacted me to help put together their family holiday card with their two 12-year-old rescues. The boys […]

ARFanage Animals: Nov/Dec

So I couldn’t share photos of the new ARF babies back in November because many of them were on legal hold and weren’t ready to be adopted, but now they’re ready to find their forever homes so strap yourself in for a long post! Below are just some of the darlings I’ve photographed the past […]

Coco, Lulu & Sidney, Mobile AL

About a month ago, Coco, Lulu and Sidney’s mom contacted me with good and bad news. The good news was Coco’s recent cancer scare turned out to be a false alarm. The bad news was she was still fighting some kind of infection and wasn’t feeling well, but after that cancer scare her mom knew […]

ARFanage Animals: October

Yep, it’s that time again — rescue doggies! I’m trying something new this month and adding the dogs’ names and website info directly to the photos so if you want to share these images and help get the word out about their search for a furever home it’s easier to track them down. So without […]

Ivan, Hank & Audrey, New Milford CT

A few weeks ago I was in the stunningly beautiful state of Connecticut (seriously, Connecticut in October is what I imagine heaven might look like) and got to do an impromptu photo session with these three gorgeous siblings — Ivan, Hank and Audrey. Ivan (the russian blue) is definitely the curious one of the bunch, […]

Woofstock 2013, Mobile AL

Woofstock is easily one of my favorite days of the year. It’s THE premier annual event for animal lovers in Mobile and is the biggest fundraiser for the Animal Rescue Foundation. There’s a doggie costume contest, wiener dog races, small dog races, great live music all day, and tons of other fun activities for humans […]

Polo at the Point is an annual charity event at the Point Clear Polo Club that benefits cancer research, children’s charities, and various local non-profits. This was my first year in attendance and in fact my first time at a polo match. I love photographing sports and if you’ve been following along on this blog […]

I had the great pleasure of spending this past Sunday afternoon with the ridiculously adorable duo of Stella and Izzy! Both girls are rescues (my favorite breed ;-)) from the Mobile SPCA. Little Izzy, a 3.5 year old corgi mix, is just exploding with energy and can chase a tennis ball for… well, forever it […]

ARFanage Animals: August and September

Looks like I have two months to catch up on in this one post! September was my birthday month (I won’t say which one, but it was a big one ;-)) so I’ve been out of town celebrating quite a bit and woefully abandoning my blog. Sorry blog. I still love you. Speaking of things […]

Meet Eva! This gorgeous kitty belongs to my dear friend Sara — or perhaps more accurately, my friend Sara belongs to Miss Eva. You guys know how it is :). Anyway, I was at Sara’s house in Houston a few weeks ago and just couldn’t resist taking a few pictures of Eva hanging out by […]

ARFanage Animals: July

July was another fairly slow month for me at the ARFanage photography wise, but it was also a fairly slow adoption month so our facilities are full to the brim with dogs!! All of the dogs you see in this post are still waiting for their furever home, so if you or someone you know […]

I was out of town for much of June so I didn’t get to shoot quite as many new dogs at the ARFanage, but here are a few of the sweet babies I did get to play with last month! And just as a reminder, more information about these dogs that are up for adoption […]

ARFanage Animals: May

I’ve always had a huge soft spot for pets, especially rescue animals. I have four at home of my own and I guarantee you they’ll all make an appearance on this blog at some point. They are my children, after all. All of my pets have been rescues and it brings me tremendous joy to […]
