Bridal Session...

I just can not wait to share this session.

I have been friends with this bride's sister for nearly 20 years!! It was an absolute honor when her mom asked me to do her bridal portraits.

Miss Bride here whisked off to Hawaii this weekend, family in tow, to marry her handsome, brave, marine fiancee. 

More to come.

Enjoy =)

Heather "The Volunteer"

Those of you who know me, know that I have always been an animal lover. I used to bring home the neighborhood cats because I was not allowed to have one (my parents are both SERIOUSLY allergic). This didn't stop at home. I will never forget finding the newborn kittens with one of my besties, Brittney, taking them back to her house to raise. Naturally, a kitten was the first addition to my own little family once I was out on my own. 

Another little note about me... I have this incessant need to help others. I have always been a nurturer, really to a fault.

So pending graduation last December, my mind was already on volunteering. The natural fit - The Plano Animal Shelter. Even more natural, being one of the animal photographers. I don't know why I haven't shared before, but from now on I will share a few of the cuties from my days at the shelter. 

Today I worked with the dogs =)

Meet: Sarje
Breed: Beagle 

Meet: Sophie
Breed: Pit Bull

Meet: Rupert
Breed: Jack Russell Terrior

Meet: Earl
Breed: Pit Bull

Meet: Dumbo!
Breed: Pit Bull Mix

Meet: Blackie

A little piece of my heart breaks everytime I leave these sweet pups (and kitties). You can find all of these guys plus about 100 more HERE -  

Next time you're looking for the newest addition to your family, PLEASE consider checking out the Plano Animal Shelter. It's really an incredible facility. I've never seen a shelter like it before. 

Love you all =)
