For the past few months, I have been searching for a way to "pay it forward", or give back in some way. There are many different organizations in existance that allow fellow photographers to do just that...such as Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep
, which offers bereavement photos for grieving families, The Heart Gallery
which offers portraits of children waiting for adoption, etc. etc. I decided to take off with the Heart Gallery idea, but put my own twist on it..I believe there is a need for good images of animals awaiting adoption. This is something that has become some important to me I'm not sure I can put it into words. These animals deserve just as much of a chance of finding happiness with a new family as purebreds bought from a breeder.
Once I decided what my project would be, I contacted our local Humane Society, the Humane Society of the High Plains
After speaking with Betty, the lady with the answers, we decided to give it a shot.
I had a wonderful time meeting the animals in the shelter, and although it was emotional at times (I'm such a sap when it comes to animals!) I am so glad I've come upon this amazing opportunity to, in my eyes, make a difference.
Enough of my rambling, here are a few of the furbabies I met!

With the start of 2008, I decided to get a fresh start. New website, new business name, new image, new blog...well, I'm sure you get the picture. :) I hope this year is even better than last year. I truly enjoyed meeting my new clients last year, and hope to continue to build working relationships with more new acquantiences this year!
Thanks again to everyone!
