Catching up on 2013 blogging…

Wow!  How fast has this year gone?!  Last year I made a promise to myself that I was going to be better at blogging my sessions.  Clearly, that didn’t happen.  But, the good news is that it’s because all of my wonderful clients have been keeping me busy!  🙂

Here’s my attempt at catching up on my blogging for the year.  The next post will likely be in another 6 months.  🙂

A HUGE thank you to all of my friends, family, and clients for all of your love and support throughout the past year. I wouldn’t be where I am today without all of you and I’m honored to have had the opportunity to work with you!As I r…eflect on what a great year 2012 was, a fellow photographer inspired me to put together a collection of all of my pictures from the year. You are all wonderful, and looking back at all of your images reminded me of how lucky I am to have such fabulous clients.

A belated happy new year to all of you and I look forward to seeing you again in 2013!

Catching up on October blogging…

OMGoodness, can’t believe it’s already November!  This fall has flown by so quickly and I’m thankful to all of my clients who have kept me busy and helped make this one huge blog post!  I always tell myself that I am going to be better about blogging, but alas, it never happens.  So, here’s my quick catch up.

To all the families featured in this post- I apologize for not writing an individual post for each of you.  You’re all fabulous and I heart you all!  But, I just know that if I took the time to write commentary on each one because I slacked so long, I’d never finish… this year at least!

NIPRA’s Pug Jam 2012

Anybody who knows me knows what a dog lover I am.  There’s something about their big round eyes and furry little faces that make my heart melt.  Combine those big round eyes with a flat snout, wrinkles, and a snort, and you get a pug.  My favorite!

8 years ago, I brought my little Brutus home.  He was 4 months old and as spunky and sociable as a pup could get.  There weren’t many dogs in our neighborhood so we took him to a monthly pug meetup at a local animal shelter.  It was there that I met one of the volunteers and organizers at the Northern Illinois Pug Rescue and Adoption center.  She worked closely with the shelter that we took Brutus to for his play dates and told me about another pug who was up for adoption and had been adopted and returned a few times.   Perplexed as to how 3 people could adopt and return this little guy (named Harley at the time) and not wanting him to go through the trauma of being adopted and returned again, I put in an application to adopt this monster dog.   A few weeks later, Harley, now named George, came home with us and has been a part of our family for the last 7 years.

Quoted from their website, NIPRA’s mission is, “to rescue, care for, and find suitable homes for unwanted, stray, or abandoned Pugs. To reduce pet overpopulation by increasing public awareness of the need to spay and neuter pets. To provide educational programs promoting the humane treatment of animals. This mission is accomplished through the dedication and energy of our board of directors and legion of faithful volunteers.”

This year was NIPRA’s 10th anniversary.  I was honored to be a part of their 10 year celebration and fund raising event – Pug Jam 2012.  The turnout was fantastic and through everyone’s combined efforts, NIPRA was able to raise not only funds for the rescue, but awareness for all of their special needs pugs.

It’s a great organization.  For anyone interested in helping them out by either volunteering your time, making a monetary donation, or fostering a dog, please check them out
