I had the opportunity recently to photograph an event for the House of Ruth, a DC charity that does exemplary work helping children, women and families out of homelessness and the cycle of abuse.
Meet Alyssa, our guest model-in-residence and foster puppy. Like Imi, Alyssa was rescued in Istanbul Turkey and traveled to the US this past Sunday with brother Aiden and sister Alice, all 5-month-old Golden Retriever puppies. Although Aiden has already been adopted, Alyssa and Alice just started their search for loving forever families. Learn more about adopting Alyssa or another beautiful Turkey Golden at Kyra’s Legacy Rescue and read about the Turkey Golden rescue program.

Saturday was Art All Night DC—my fifth AAN and my third year as coordinator of photography. Look for new blog posts about Art All Night coming in the next several days.
After America celebrates labor day and the kids are back in school, after the last boiiing of a spring board launching a teen diver, after the last squeals of a toddler joyfully splashing water, and after the last lap has been swum and all the pools shuttered for the year, the DC Department of Parks and Recreation re-opens its Community Pools for one more day… to dogs.
Yes, model-in-residence Imi is still in training, but should sleeping through a shoot ever be tolerated?
