I’ve been working on calendars this year and the first one is called Furry Faces. This calendar contains a whole year of adorable furry faces that I photographed pro bono to help get these pets homes!! It is a CD Jewel Case calendar (5″x 5.5″) so it will fit nicely on a desktop or counter and the images/pages sit in the CD case holder. The first edition of this calendar was printed as a fundraiser for FOCHP (Friends of Orange County’s Homeless Pets). I work with a few rescue groups but most of my rescue portraits are of FOCHP pets. The good news is all proceeds from the sale of this calendar will go to FOCHP to help them save even more pets next year. So buy it and get your friends to buy it (and their friends too). You’ll have cute Furry Faces to look at all year (to be specific . . . over 20 pups and 2 kittens). You can feel good about helping to get more rescue pets good homes. AND there is no reason to feel sorry for the pets in the calendar because due to the incredible efforts of the amazing rescue volunteers at FOCHP  most of these furry faces are now  living in a loving home (I think everyone but the last bumper crop of kittens has a home.)   How’s that for a warm fuzzy?!   If you are interested in adopting a pet go to your local rescue or shelter! There are tons of furry faces who would love to meet you!!  Next year,  I would love to expand the distribution of the Furry Faces calendar to help as many rescue groups and shelters as possible.  We could also use some local businesses to sponsor the printing of more calendars so that even more funds can be raised!! If you are with a local Southern California business and would like to help sponsor the calendar’s printing cost please contact me!! (my personal piggy bank is running low :)

Pet Portrait Bloopers

September 7, 2011

A while back I started a folder I named “Bloopers” and after a few weeks I forgot all about it. If things don’t have a deadline or a pulse, sometimes they slip my mind. Plants never make it long at my house. Today I came across the folder and some of these are just so funny I had to share. Hope they make you giggle a bit and want to hug your dog, cat, kid or random stranger. I thought I’d add the pets comments . . .
