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.

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!

2012 in review

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.

The Aftermath of Hurricane Sandy – A Photo Essay

November 15, 2012

The photographs that follow speak for themselves. While I have spent the last 14 years specializing in animal portraiture, my first love has always been documentary photography. When Sandy hit my own backyard and my Jersey Shore community, I felt it was my duty first as a photographer to document what happened.

Fine Art Prints and Posters from Image Conscious

September 4, 2012

Well it’s been a long summer with my kids and my dog Reilly. I know this because I haven’t blogged much since July and that means I have been bogged down, literally with swim team, the beach, vacationing in Cape Cod and well, just being a mom. Of course, I haven’t stopped working the month of August but blogging just took a backseat to everything else. That said, I am happy to share some of what I have been working on this past summer starting with my new print and poster line from Image Conscious.

For as many years I have licensed my dog and cat images, I have always wanted to have a fine art print line and I am happy it has finally come to fruition. Starting back in January 2012, five dog prints were released. These prints showed up in some exciting places like Z Gallerie in Chicago and Marshall’s stores all over the U.S. You can also order them “on-demand” and print on either paper or canvas.

Below are some of the new prints available including some of my favorite cat images. Enjoy!
