TJH Bark in the Park San Antonio 2022 Pet Costume Contest benefiting San Antonio animal shelters San Antonio Pets Alive (SAPA) and Animal Defense League of Texas (ADL)

Every year I have the honor of covering the TJH Law BITP in San Antonio. It is one of the largest pet costume contests in the country and is an awesome event. Created specifically to benefit local San Antonio Animal Shelters, which are always in need of volunteers, donations and especially fosters for homeless pets. The TJH Law team that puts this event together does a top notch job, pulling out all the stops with a DJ, food trucks, pet industry vendors, cheerleaders , TWO stages, and MC’s. They really do such a fantastic job it makes me want to go work for TJH Law (I have NO law experience!). Maybe Thomas J Henry needs his own staff photographer? One can only hope. The 1st place prize is $1000.00 and these pet parents are SERIOUS about winning! This is always my most favorite event to cover, I mean who doesn’t love being around lots of dogs in cute costumes? I can hardly wait until next year!

Bay Area Adoption Photos

I have only been in The Bay Area now for about 6 months and connected with Senior Dog Rescue Muttvile in San Fransisco volunteering to shoot adoption photos once a week. They have a fantastic team of staff members and volunteers all work together to save lives. I am honored to be a part of such a great rescue group who is making a profound difference in the lives of senior homeless dogs in California. If you would like to volunteer, contribute or want more information regarding Muttvile, please click this link.

Thomas J. Henry’s Bark in the Park San Antonio

Every year I get to photograph LOTS of cute dogs at the country’s largest pet costume contest. Thomas J. Henry’s “Bark in The Park” San Antonio. I know, who would have guessed that San Antonio has the country’s largest pet costume contest? The event raises money for local rescues and is a huge deal here. The prizes are: 1st place $1000.00, 2nd place $750.00, 3rd place $500.00, so you better believe that the competition is stiff and the costumes are very creative and elaborate! There are SO many contestants, they need TWO stages (both have a DJ and MC) running simultaneously throughout the day, with the finals ending at the big stage. When I say big stage, I mean this is like a stage for a major entertainment event like Beyonce or something! The TJH team really goes all out putting this thing together. Its at a beautiful location (The Sunken Gardens, San Antonio), with lots of pet business vendors, food trucks, cool down areas for dogs, shade areas to get out of the sun, huge wind fans to keep dogs and people cool, an area for kids with various bouncy tents/slides and even a hay bail maze! But, I have to say my favorite part other than seeing all of the dogs, are the cheerleader/dancers, complete with pom poms. These tireless souls are enthusiastically dancing and cheering for EVERY contestant, until the winner is decided (we’re talking for 5 hours!), they really add to the overall joy with the event. In the end, the judges pick the 5 best contestants, the audience then gets to cheer for the winner. Whoever gets the most cheers, wins! The winner this year was “Pueo Perros”, lowrider dogs, but it was close with “Alien Abduction”, both were really cleaver! It’s really a great event the whole family can enjoy,  including the dogs. If you’re up to a little competition, TJH is having another Bark in the Park, on the beach in Corpus Christi on Oct. 26th, 2019.

A local contest put on by real estate marketing firm JontPro. They choose few photographers out of many and gave us 20 minutes to shoot. The location is a mansion built in 1900 for Jessie D. Oppenheimer. The mansion is now up for sale by Jennifer Shemwell with Phyllis Browning Co. Being a “dog photographer” I naturally wanted to photograph a cute dog at the mansion. I was limited to outside only and this is the shot. The dog’s name is Oliver and he is a 5 month old chocolate lab puppy. He was awesome especially with us all freaking out because of the time limit and, this was is very first professional photo shoot. Good boy Oliver!

Cavalier Rescue of Alabama

I had the privilege of photographing this very sweet boy “Tulsa” who is available for adoption through the Cavalier Rescue of Alabama. He is a real cutie and even though he was a little shy, he gently took lots of freeze dried liver treats from my hand. You can find out more about him here: http://cavalierrescueal.org
