I wrote about this fun event on my website, but never got around to posting it here. So this post is a little bit late, but better late than never! 

Tonight is dog’s night at the Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota! Come bring your dog and watch the Sarasota Reds play the Lakeland Flying Tigers at 6pm. If you can’t make it tonight, be sure to come the the July 11th game when the Reds play the Port Charlotte Stone Crabs. You can bring your dog both nights! Both dog and human admissions are $5 and all dog admissions benefit the Humane Society of Sarasota County. So you get to have a fun evening with your dog and help a great shelter!

We’ll have a little table and photography display set up, so be sure to stop by and meet us! I’ll bring my camera, so hopefully I’ll have some photos of the four-legged attendees to post next week.

And here’s some Buddy to brighten your weekend. I love my Bud. :)

Here are the final photos from our Pet Photo Day on June 13th. I photographed some of the birds that are in A Pet’s Life. Now, I’m not really a bird person, but these birds were so friendly that I couldn’t help but love them. They perched on my shoulder, nibbled on my earrings, and almost pooped on me. It was fun (but I’m not too sure what I would’ve thought if the bird really did poop on me). :)

  • wow, these birds are awesome…..nice work! what color is that greenish/gray paper?

  • and by greenish/gray i mean bluish/gray :)

  • Emilee

    sarah >> Thanks! The paper is Charcoal – my favorite! I’ve been having some trouble with the color balance, so it looks kind of blue in these. :)

  • those are neat! I’m impressed you got them to sit there like that..looks like they even smiled ;)

  • Awww! Love them. I have a teil also and he’s such a cutie. Awesome photos!

  • Wow! I’m not a bird lady either, but I did have a cockateil just like this when I was a kid– you’ve GOT the signature poses here! Love the first one- it looks like it should be a billboard. And the last one with the head tilts are classic.

  • Hey I love these! Especially that last one of the 2 birds. Very cool!

  • emilee these are amazing! i really, really love them. fabulous work!

  • nice work, emilee!

Part 2 of our Photo Day pictures features Wyatt Earp and Darla, two of the dogs owned by the fabulous owners of A Pet’s Life. I can’t begin to tell you how much fun it was to shoot these two, especially Mr. Wyatt Earp. Each pup was a little bit unsure at first, but they warmed up to the camera very quickly! Wyatt would do anything for his beloved tennis ball, and both dogs enjoyed the treats (who wouldn’t?).

I had the hardest time narrowing down Wyatt’s photos. How could I possibly bring myself to delete any images of this handsome Miniature Australian Shepherd?

On the left you see his very focused tennis ball face.

I loved these detail shots!

Here is Miss Darla, an adorable little Maltese. I think she is in the store just about every day, hanging out wither her parents and greeting customers with a bark (she’s a little bit wary of strangers). Once she gets to know you, she’s a total sweetheart!

I love Darla’s long, wavy hair. It is the cutest little mop I’ve ever seen! :)

And we’ll end with a shot of the two together!

It was a privilege to photograph such willing, beautiful models. I will definitely be calling on Wyatt and Darla when I need models for future projects!

Next up, some of the cute, friendly birds from A Pet’s Life!

  • Emilee, you have an absolute gift with these animals. :) You’re so great at what you do. I know I could never get any dog to sit like that for me…even the most well behaved ones! HA. :) Your pictures are wonderful!
