LKN Currents Pet Issue

October is one of my favorite months because the annual Pet Issue of Lake Norman Currents Magazine goes on stands! This year I had the pleasure of photographing Ozzy, a Boxer/Pit mix, for the cover. I felt a special connection with Ozzy as he and Sadie (my black Lab/Pit mix) have very similar pasts. They both were living at the Lincoln County Animal Shelter and both were found at an adoption event at the local Petco just a short time before they were to be euthanized. Ozzy's mom adopted him just 2 weeks prior to him winning the Currents Commodore Cover Dog Contest which landed his headshot on the cover!

And some more of the adorable Ozzy. Who said shelter dogs couldn't be supermodels?

If you pick up an issue, don't miss the "Pets and the Owners who Love Them" story on page 28. If you follow this blog, you'll find some familiar faces gracing the pages of the magazine. I'm so proud of my clients! They all look awesome!


I sitting here thinking of what I should write about Fletcher and, honestly, I don't think there are any words that can sum up this guy's happiness and jubilee. Fletcher is blessed with a perma-grin and I think it must be contagious. I smiled the entire session, throughout editing the images and, now, I dare YOU not to crack a grin. This little man is so loved by his parents and he is basically joined at the hip with his dad. It was so touching to hear about their daily routines - getting coffee at the gas station in the morning, visiting with the cashiers and getting cookies, going on car rides, having nice long walks, and their going-to-bed ritual. Thank you so much, Fletcher, for letting me spend a few smiling hours with you! I can't wait to photograph you again once you have grown out your handsome winter coat!

PS - That's Fletcher gracing the top of my new blog!!!
