I had so much fun photographing the Service Dogs of Virginia’s new puppies back in August, so I was thrilled when they asked me to work with them again! This time we photographed the older trainees or “adolescences” as the trainers call them. They weren’t quite as trained as the beautiful Raven (who I photographed in June), so their antics and sometimes stubbornness did remind me of teenagers. It’s a good thing they are all so cute! 😉
I worked together with the trainers striving to capture each of their personalities, which were honestly all very unique. Now Service Dogs of Virginia will use the photos in their new Sponsor a Dog Campaign. Donors will have the opportunity to receive a variety of gifts and prints for their donation. I hope my work helps them reach new donors as they truly are an amazing organization that does wonderful things for people in need!
