I have such fun news to share! I am now a volunteer photographer with the KC Pet Project! This past weekend I completed my training and shot some trial images as a second shooter to the main photographer. It was a beautiful experience, and I was so humbled by the hard work everyone is doing at KC Pet Project.
KC Pet Project is the largest no-kill animal shelter in the Kansas City area, and they care for over 9,000 animals a year. Earlier this year, my sweet daughter decided instead of birthday gifts to have her friends and family bring toys and food for the animals at KC Pet Project, which we then donated to the shelter. After that incredible experience, I was told about the partnership between local photographers and the KC Pet Project, where you can volunteer your time and talent to help get the word out about these deserving animals. I will be a part of the team that takes photos of the animals, hopefully showing their personalities and warm spirits (which can be difficult to see when they are in a shelter kennel), helping to round up interest online, and ultimately, getting the animal adopted.
This opportunity is so fulfilling, and I’m so grateful to be a part of this incredible team of creatives who are using their talent to help these sweet pets. I’ll definitely be posting more images soon, and keep your eye on both my own Facebook and Instagram pages, along with the KC Pet Project, for more information on how to adopt a shelter pet!
