Heartland Humane Society

I have been a volunteer with Heartland Humane Society of Missouri for six years now. Now matter how many pets we place in new homes, there will always be more needing our help. Here are some scenes from our adoption event yesterday. Six cats found forever homes, but these didn't. Please consider opening your heart to a new pet!

Preserving Memories

I've been so caught up in the bustle of the holiday season (aka 3 weekends of Santa/pet pictures) that I needed a reality check of why I like to take pictures of pets so much. I did enjoy seeing so many happy dogs (and a few cats) that are spoiled enough to visit Santa, but it's not really why I do this. It was a guilty pleasure to take a sneak peak at yesterday's photo shoot even though I have another job I need to finish before I can edit all of these.

The love that this family has for their dog is so special yet so sad since she is in her golden years. To be able to preserve that bond for them makes me feel like there's a reason that I learned so much about photography, so that I can help celebrate life! You see, as much as they love Kyra, there's one thing they can't do for her. They can't make her live forever. But hopefully my photographs of her will give them a lasting legacy to comfort them when her time comes.

Autumn Sky

While waiting for the sunset to develop, I found the real gem in the beautiful cornflower blue sky. The shades of color and texture in the clouds were absolutely stunning!

Harry & Sally

Susan's employees surprised her with a Boss's Day gift certificate for photography! We had a perfect fall day for our session, the dogs had a blast and we created some wonderful memories.

Vet-Pet Rescue Animals

These pets are all in foster care looking for homes. Hopefully these photos will help that journey go a little bit faster.

Thank you Vet-Pet Rescue for asking me to be part of your Costume Contest fundraiser! Many of the participants told us their rescue stories. What a great day with some cute dogs.
