I’m married to a great guy, we have two beautiful and funny university aged daughters who recently have forbidden me from taking their photos without the involvement of extreme bribery. So…I was forced to move onto easier prey…my four Tibetan Terriers (TT’s) as my muse. I am sure if given the chance they would also put the kibosh on my excessive shutter clicking.
Three of my four present dogs are adopted, Tashi 5, is a TT cross who came to us at 6 months of age through Northern Alberta Society for Animal Protection in Edmonton. Tashi has taught me a great deal about dog behaviour (both good and bad). Bella 10 and Buddha 8 are a bonded TT pair from Vancouver who came into our lives this past April through Tibetan Terrier Club of Canada Rescue; they are adapting to pack life and Alberta winters, slowly. Kaya 10, is the only remaining member of my original three member TT pack, SHE knows it and reminds everyone else whenever she can. I love all animals, especially dogs, and spent four years running a successful dog walking and pet sitting business. Now I have a part time gig capturing images of pets and the people who love them.
One of my reasons for starting this blog is because of a project I’m starting in 2013; it’s my take on a 100 Strangers Photography Project. My goal is to take photos of 100 Pets and their People (all strangers) over the course of the year. I am very excited about this project and know it will help me grow as a photographer and individual. I also hope to share some of our adventures walking in the woods and excerpts from my photo shoots.
I hope you drop in often to see what’s going on. Cheers! Sheila
