Schroeder Dog Pics!

So my sister and brother-in-law came over last night and, since we had some time to kill, we busted out the portable studio and had a puppy photo shoot! It was pretty darn fun, but also a learning experience. Her youngest pup is a beautiful golden color, but he looks terrible on a red background! And always make sure mom has a treat!

Check out the pics on my Facebook page and let me know what you think!

Trip to DC!

I was lucky enough to go to Arlington, VA with a coworker for an awesome PBS training. While we were there, we made sure to take the Metro over to DC for all the standard DC tourist things. I’ve been to the capital a few times, but the gal I went with hadn’t been in 30 years.

Since I just took a kit lens with me to save on luggage, etc., on the train, I had a little trouble in the dark. Lots of ‘deep breath and hold it’ photos!

Bark Bash photo shoot

As a volunteer with Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue, I started doing “photo booths” at events. Essentially the presenting organization sets up a tent/hay/cornstalks, etc. and I take the pictures. I donate all my time and I email the photos (so there’s no overhead) and the organization gets all the donations.

This weekend I did just such a photo booth at the Louie’s, ABC’s of Bullies and Cincinnati Pit Crew’s Bark Bash in West Chester, Ohio. It was a BRISK day and I was fighting a pretty bad cold, but I’d still say it was a success.

I’m not sure how much money I helped raise, but I had about 20 to 25 groups who took part in the photo booth fun. It was a ton of fun and I got to meet a bunch of great pooches.

I emailed the photos out this morning, but I also put some on Facebook. The album is public, so you should be able to see it. Check it out here:
