Happy Tails Veterinary Hospital

June 18, 2015

I recently had the opportunity to photograph the terrific veterinarians and staff at Happy Tails Veterinary Hospital in Shrewsbury, NJ. Owned by Dr. Marco Sima and Dr. Dina Rovere, Happy Tails opened its doors one year ago in the Gerard Plaza on Route 35. Happy Tails is able to offer both the personal service many pet owners want, along with high level care including emergency services and critical care, weekend surgery appointments, house calls, dental care, and hospice. The hospital has an in-house Laboratory, Digital Radiology and Ultrasound. Their doctors and staff have been in the veterinary medicine field for decades.

Below are some of the images I took during my several visits to the hospital.

Dog Wash – Series 2

December 1, 2014

I am excited to present the photographs I took at the Brielle Dog Boutique last weekend. This is the 2nd in the series of Dog Wash images. Once again, there were a great group of dogs who came to the Boutique to get baths. Some were first timers, and others were regulars. It is funny how some of the dogs get excited to get their baths but others are very frightened and anxious about getting wet! Here are some of my favorite shots from the day.

Dog Wash – Series 1

September 15, 2014

I had a great time recently taking portraits for my new photography series Dog Wash at the Brielle Dog Boutique in Brielle, NJ. I had the opportunity to meet so many great dogs and owners too! The funniest part of taking pictures of dogs’ being washed was their reactions to getting wet. Some of them smiled throughout their wash – they were simply unaffected by being soaped up! But others were flustered and agitated – they couldn’t wait for their bath to be finished. Here are some of my favorite shots:

This year I had the honor of photographing the Monmouth County SPCA 2014 calendar, a fundraising program I started with the shelter 10 years ago. After a six year break , I was thrilled to be back photographing some very happy rescued animals from the MCSPCA. We selected a terrific group of dogs, cats and a giant rabbit named Fiona. The calendar is still available and can be purchased directly on the shelters’ website at www.monmouthcountyspca.org

Below are the images that appear in the calendar as well as some of my favorite outtakes that didn’t make the cut. Enjoy!

2012 in review

December 31, 2012

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 9,100 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 15 years to get that many views.
