With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it was time to stop into Pets With Parents for some photographs. Hopefully, by my next trip there, all of these dogs and cats will be long gone and in their new homes with loving owners.
It was puppies galore on this visit. Oh how I love the itty-bitty wagging tails and puppy breath! We’re on a two dog limit at my house or I may have tried to adopt them all. Every dog and cat that I photographed was super sweet. While George and I were there photographing, we got to see a couple trying to pick their new best friend. They brought a few of the puppies into the playroom, where I photograph, to get to know them. It’s so fun to see these silly little puppies shaking their butts, giving out kisses and sniffing around the new people. Cute little puppies looking for their new parents, this is why I love my job. I get the opportunity to photograph many of the pets in Columbus that need homes. And I also get the chance to meet people who are looking to add a cat or dog to their family.
And if you happen to be a pet photographer who stumbled onto my blog, be sure to check out HeARTs Speak, a fantastic organization that I am a member of. They connect Rescues/Shelters with artists with the intention of breaking down the myth that animals from Rescues and Shelters are inferior in some way. Professional photographs greatly improve adoptability and ultimately, will increase the number of animals adopted and reduce the numbers that are killed. You can find more information on their website heartsspeak.org or their Facebook page #/HeARTsSpeak.
