Here is a tribute to 2016, a Year in Review for me as a Pet Photographer (and people too).  2016 was a year of growth for Whitehall Photography.

Here are some of the stats:

  • 40 Dogs—A group of 12 and a group of 5 (I’m always up for a challenge)
  • A horse, pig and a fawn
  • 32 families, babies and toddlers
  • 2 weddings
  • 3 Seniors
  • A Motorcycle fundraiser for Honor Flight of St. Louis
  • 1 Corporate Event at the Magic House
  • 1 Birth (AMAZING)
  • 2 Newborns
  • A lifetime achievement celebration by 32 doctors for their mentor

Look at all the cute furry faces!!!!!

It was also a year of sadness where 4 dogs that I have had the privilege of capturing before they crossed the Rainbow Bridge.  While nothing can ease the pain of losing one of your beloved fur babies the images will warm their hearts.  George - Elvis - Bandit - Apollo - Scotty.

I had the amazing opportunity to take two workshops this year:   Pet Workshop in Sonoma Valley, California and a Newborn/Maternity Workshop in Washington State.  I learned so many new things that I was able to immediately apply to my photography business, some new things for editing and made some great new friends.

Goals for 2017:

  • I plan to continue working on my personal project of “When I grow Up”.
  • Get some of my work published or displayed.
  • Continue to grow as a photographer, developing my skills as a photographer and as a pet photographer.

2017 is a blank memory card waiting for the snap of the shutter to begin telling the story. it is what I love it, is who I am and there are far too many places yet to see and capture. -- Sharon
