I took these portraits of my dog Reilly today. She was unusually cooperative sitting for me against a white backdrop. Reilly is a rescued border collie/terrier mix. I hope you enjoy her portraits.

2014 Cover

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!

Guest Judge for the Furry Faces Contest on www.iheartfaces.com

December 16, 2011

I was recently asked to be the guest judge for this week’s Furry Faces photography competition on www.iheartfaces.com. If you are not familiar with this terrific website, you need to check it out. It is for budding photography enthusiasts as well as professional photographers interested in displaying their craft for both exposure and enjoyment.

I have to admit, judging the contest was overwhelming because there were simply so many good animal portraits. They ranged from traditional dog and cat portraits, kids with animals, and last but not least some “not so furry” animals such as ladybugs, frogs and even a preying mantis. With over 400 images to look at, it was hard to narrow it down to ten top choices. I liked so many, I tried to squeeze in five honorable mentions. They were that good.

Not sure if the finalists are up yet, but go to www.iheartfaces.com to see the winners. While you’re browsing you can also check out the interview about me at www.iheartfaces.com. Come back in a little bit and I will try to display some of the winning shots.  Enjoy! kim

Monmouth County SPCA Ad Campaign

August 17, 2011

For over ten years I have supported my local Monmouth County SPCA. My support started with the introduction of their yearly calendar which I photographed for four years. I recently had the honor of photographing an advertising campaign that is currently running from August through October here in Monmouth, Ocean and Middlesex, NJ counties. The purpose of the campaign is to raise awareness about rescuing and adopting animals from the shelter. The Monmouth County SPCA is one of 50 shelters participating in the National ASPCA $100,000 Challenge. Each shelter’s goal is to increase the number of adoptions throughout the three month period vs. the previous year. There may be a shelter in your area that is participating in the ASPCA so check out your local shelter.

The MCSPCA is running both outdoor billboards and bus shelters as well as print ads and posters. Below are the billboards and posters.  Please visit www.monmouthcountyspca.org to learn more about the shelter and ways that you can help. www.kimlevin.com

Erin Go Bark! Irish Dogs and Blessings

March 17, 2011

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Here’s our book Erin Go Bark! Irish Dogs and Blessings written by my husband John O’Neill. Believe it or not Erin Go Bark! was published ten years ago (March 2001). It features dogs from Ireland (Spaniels, Border Collies, Terriers etc) with unique and original Irish Blessings.

Here are some of my favorite pics from the book:

May you always understand what is being said to you.

May you welcome the ones you love and even the ones you don’t.

May Mother Nature always give you the best baths.

May you always eavesdrop on good news.

May you seek revenge on the person who named you “Scruffy.”

May you see the inside of the door as often as you see the outside.

May your local open early and close late.

May your owner never play off-key.

Let us forever bless the witty soul who invented dog clothing.

May your friends always sing your praises behind your back.

May you never get bored just shooting the breeze.

May the mailman never keep you waiting.
