This is the best kind of photo shoot. A gorgeous fall day, perfect weather and a sweet little girl. Bella and I had so much fun. She was up for anything I asked her to do. She’s a natural. We played in the leaves, danced around, climbed on the bridge and ran through the wet grass. I was so happy that we actually had fall colors in the park that day. A rarety in Los Angeles!
Turn up the volume, sit back and enjoy.

This modern world of Facebook and the internet is a very interesting time. Some of my very best friends, I’ve never even met in person. Hard to believe.
As many of you know, I am an avid animal lover. I always have been. It has only been in recent years—actually the last 10—that I have made the decision to be an animal rescuer as well. Who would have thought that the computer would play such an important role in what I do today.
When I decided to take the plunge into the rescue world, I wasn’t quite sure how I wanted to help. Or what I would be good at. But I knew I loved animals and that I was able to take pretty decent photos of them.
While searching the internet for inspiration I found a photographer that I fell in love with—Printz Photography. The images jumped out at me from the screen. I admired the photographs and hoped to one day be as good.
I’d visit the blog weekly and followed the photographer for years—all the while working in my corner of the world photographing animals, volunteering at rescues and eventually fostering dogs.
Fast forward a few years later. I stumbled on a new group of artists that were trying to help shelter pets with their art. I knew immediately I had found kindred spirits. I immediately joined HeARTs Speak.
Imagine my utter surprise when I found out the founder was none other than Lisa Fishler, of Printz Photography! The photographs I had been admiring for years. She started HeARTs Speak for many of the reasons I found myself drawn to animal photography and rescue.
Through my work with HeARTs Speak I have been able to meet and work with some amazing animal advocates. Rock and Rescue is one of those unbelievable groups. Much like HeARTs Speak, they are passionate artists who want to use their music and talents to help the animals.
Through mutual Facebook friends I was asked to photograph Rock and Rescue’s big event—a concert to raise money for homeless pets. One of the groups playing that night, was Elvis Monroe. I fell in love with their song ‘Comin’ Around’.
Fast forward a few months —I’m on Facebook and see that Elvis Monroe has released their first album. Immediately I buy a copy and on a whim decide to ask the lead singer if I could use my favorite song for a video I was working on to showcase pets that are up for adoption.
Bryan said yes.
This video is the result of people working together for the benefit of dogs and cats without homes. Using their talents to help change the world. Trusting people who are virtual strangers, but with the same passion and coming together in an amazing way.
When I look back at the last few years and think about how I got from point A to point B, I am truly amazed.
Yep, some of my very best friends I’ve never even met. The friendship we share stemmed from a computer screen mixed with artistic passion, the love of animals and the need to do something for the greater good.
