So far, most of the dogs I get in front of my camera are sighthounds. Which makes sense if you take in consideration the non profit rescue I am running also. But last week I finally got the chance to photograph Kozier, a corgi. Koozier belongs to Camille, a co-worker and we had planned to do a shoot for a long time, but finally last week it all worked out. 'Kooz' as we call him, had lots of fun during the shoot as did I, he is one of my best dog friends and it was great fun to work with a dog that you can actually position on a fallen tree without it falling off. Sighthound legs are just too long for that.

Every year in October Dewey Beach welcomes a greyhound event called Greyhounds Reach the Beach and every year, friends of mine invite me to stay in the house they rent for the event for a few days. It is a wonderful way to get my beach fix, I love the beach, and spend time with friends and usually I bring one of my dogs. This year I decided to use the opportunity and do two shoots. Which meant that I was not going to bring any of my dogs since I was not sure how any of them would be doing being left alone. And so, I turned into the creepy lady asking strangers if I could photograph their dogs while walking on the board walk. And not just that, when checking on a possible location for pictures, I watched a wedding photographer doing her job in the spot that I had hoped to photograph also. Without her knowing, I got some great ideas from watching her. The shoots went well, what is not to love about pictures in those settings, right? But the picture I loved most from the weekend was not a dog, but a tiny little sparrow that decided to land only a meter away from me. A little gift from mother nature...

As some of you know, a huge part of my heart and my time is spent on SAGE A non profit organization that aims to find homes and spreads awareness about the Spanish hunting dogs, the galgo Español and the podencos. Recently I started a photography project that hopefully will raise some funds for SAGE, a wall calendar for 2023. Something I have never done before but I am having a lot of fun finding locations and meeting up with the adopted galgos and their owners. This week I met up with Laura and Hugo, Laura and her husband adopted Hugo in July of this year And last week I met up with Aaron and Alison who adopted Dunia who came to the US on the same flight. And while the calendar pictures will have to remain a surprise, please meet Hugo and Dunia, 2 of the galgos who will star in the calendar.
