Project 52: Rescue Dogs of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky | Week 18

May 07, 2021  •  3 Comments

It's Week 18 of professional pet photography blog circle Project 52 and our topic is rescue dogs. Over the years I've photographed many rescue dogs in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. As an animal lover and a pet photographer, part of my mission is to give back to rescue animals in need by trying to help them get adopted through providing professional quality adoption photos. I also photograph other rescue animals from cats and rabbits to guinea pigs, birds, and more. Some of my favorite images that I've captured are of rescue pets I was photographing for their adoption bio.

These first two images of puppies are a couple of my favorites that I photographed for a local rescue a few years ago. The dog in the first portrait was also one that I transported from a rural pound.

Molly currently is living her best life with her basset siblings.

She was already adopted when I photographed her, but rescue clients are some of my favorites. Stella is 16 years old and she and her mom just celebrated 10 happy years together. Stella was a puppy mill dog but left that all behind when she met her mom, Aurora.

These are just a few different rescue dogs that I've photographed over the years and I'm always looking to photograph more whether its a Rescue dog in Greater Cincinnati or Northern Kentucky that needs a high-quality adoption photo or YOUR rescue dog that you're looking to commemorate with a portrait session.

The Basset Hound on the roadway makes me think of a hobo, just traveling the roads - make it sepia toned and it could be from the 30's! I love the colorful images of the rescue pups - think you for ALL you do to help Cincinnati rescue animals.
I just love to hear clients tell the "tale" of their rescued pet. Beautiful photos!
