enter renee, daniel, and khia! and yes, this is the renee and daniel from july. :) i was so excited to see them again and even more excited to photograph their new puppy, khia. i am a cat person as i’ve never owned dogs and suspect i’d be far too lazy to ever have one, but khia made me want a puppy. like, now. specifically, a puppy just like khia. i can gauge how adorable i think an animal is by how badly my face hurts afterward due to clenching my jaw when i speak to them because i’m overcome with cuteness. and my jaw hurt pretty badly after this session. :) SOOO RIDICULOUSLY CUTE. and she didn’t bark once. how amazing is she!? pet portraits are so fun.
there’s a puppy in there somewhere. :) she was awesome at listening! we told her to stay and walked really far with her treats and she stayed, just chilling in the barn. most kids wouldn’t do that!
i feel like i need a big canvas of the below two shots in my house somewhere. and when someone asks me if that’s my dog, i will say no. and they’ll look at me funny, but i won’t care.
prepare for your hearts to explode, everyone! it’s an australian shepherd puppy driving a john deere.
and let’s not forget that renee and daniel are adorable themselves. :) love these guys!
sooo, how many of you have the strong urge to go out and get a puppy?!
Carolyn Scott Photography has partnered with Safe Haven for Cats during the month of June to bring a fantastic benefit to the Triangle! For those of you who aren’t familiar with Safe Haven, here is a description of their fantastic work in their own words:
“SAFE Haven For Cats (SHFC) is a no-kill shelter for cats located in the North Raleigh area of North Carolina. We are a unique community-based animal shelter. In addition to providing adoption services for cats and kittens in need of good homes, we also manage a foster program for animals requiring a little extra love and care. We further assist our community in providing feline spay and neuter services in connection with SAFE Care Feline Spay Neuter Clinic.”
Safe Haven for Cats is always in need of donations and support: “Today’s tough economy is having an impact on the cats. The reality finds fewer cats adopted andmore abandoned at our door, or returned when household finances worsen. We are currently caring for over 100 cats daily. The most in the 15 year history of SAFE Haven. And, honestly, we do not have enough funds to keep up with demand.”
In order to give back to the shelter that’s given so much to the community and, more personally, gave Geoff and I our two adorable furballs two years ago, Carolyn Scott Photography is sponsoring a benefit for Safe Haven for Cats.
From June 1st-June 30th, community members of the Triangle are encouraged to schedule a session with Carolyn Scott Photography to benefit the shelter. Half of the proceeds from all sitting fees and purchased items will go towards Safe Haven. Details:
– This sitting fee can be used towards solely photographing a pet, or photographing family members alongside the pet. The only rule is that the pet will be included in all photographs. After all, he’s a member of the family!
– The photo shoot can be at your house, a park, or any other location of your choosing where your family pet would be comfortable.
– You can book a pet photography session ($100) from now until June 30th. All sessions must take place during the month of June, which is Adopt-A-Cat month.
– 50% of all the proceeds (sitting fees + prints, albums, or DVDs) will go to Safe Haven for Cats to help support the cats, volunteers, and the great community work that they accomplish.
Please consider giving back to a shelter that safely houses cats and kittens looking for a home by booking a photo session of your favorite little animal. This is a great opportunity for cat and dog lovers alike to get fantastic portraits while supporting a great cause at the same time. Book today – sessions will fill up quickly!
