The Love of Lilly by TeaPhotography The Love of Lilly by TeaPhotography
Dedicated to my good friend Jo :iconjamminjo:
for her beautiful heart and soul, and all of her unbelievable support!

Lilly, a white Chihuahua mix, was the first dog of so many, who I photographed at the annual "Mutt Strut" event that seeks to raise funds for The South Coast Humane Society where I volunteer on a regular basis as the photographer for their animals to help them get adopted.

At this event, which was all day last Sunday, people paid a donation to have a full size image of their dog, or them with their dog or DOGSSS, e-mailed to them...

I spent all day doing all manner of photographing for this event, with the make-shift outdoor photo studio! :aww:

As a result, I also received some orders for PRINTS for these very same images, which because of The Shelter Project, even more donation goes back to The South Coast Humane Society.

In fact, two prints have already been made and delivered of THIS photo here.

It was successful all the way around for everyone, and all for the benefit of animals in need of care and permanent loving homes!


My friend Jo, has been supportive of me in such a wide variety of ways...
she's even the most recent affiliate of The Shelter Project because of her support with that, as well...

Jo is truly fantastic, loves animals, and has some Chihuahuas of her own! :D

Here is a feature of her wonderful work:


[ :note: NOTE: Thank you, in advance, for any :+fav:'s I may receive for this image. :thanks: :aww: :rose: I am honoured and grateful that anyone would think well enough to :+fav: it. :nod: So thank you from the bottom of my heart :heart: . I understand if you don't have time to comment, but thank you for any kind comments, too. :aww:
It's important to know this NOW, as I may NOT be able to do individual thank-you's for :+fav:'s, or in case I cannot respond to each comment, either. Thanks for understanding. :thanks:
And, if you just came to view, I appreciate that, too.
