Meet Sweet Serenity!!

She came to the Studio last week for her glamour session and I automatically fell in love with her and her sweet personality!! Although she has no sight, she was very happy to meet me!

She looooves belly rubs and she modeled like a real pro!

Her foster Mom says she is truly a velcro dog and is going to be someone's very best friend!

Serenity's life has not been serene until now. This little cutie was found as a stray and rescued from almost being hit by a car. She was kept in a crate outdoors (during cool weather and rain!) while the good Samaritan who found her looked for the owner. She had a terrible eye condition when she first came to the rescue. She couldn't see, and her eyes made her very uncomfortable. The veterinarian recommended removing her eyes, so she just had that done. She feels much better now! DO NOT FEEL BAD FOR HER! She does not feel bad for herself! Life is so much better already.


Serenity is about 5 years old (maybe younger?) and she weighs about 15 lbs. She's fully house-trained.. she is SUCH a good girl about waiting for her people to take her out to potty!!

Ready to meet her!? Head now to Good Karma Pet Rescue and fell in love with this sweet girl!


Hearts Speak, Senior DogspaopaladiniComment

In honor of November's 'Adopt-A-Senior-Pet Month,' I have put senior humans and fur babies together for these sessions. I have done so in the hopes of promoting these amazing seniors dogs and in the hopes that, through these images, we can create a continued awareness to treasure our seniors, both human, as well as dogs.I also hope that this serves to remind us that they deserve our kindness, our respect and, most importantly, our LOVE!

So this is the story behind my 'Seniors for Seniors' photo project, my WHY in case you were wondering! These senior humans and senior dogs had never met before today, but their paths crossed, specifically for this photo-session.

They are not even the same species, but they have walked a long journey along the path of life. They have given a lifetime of LOVE, and they know that life is so much better when you don't have to face it all alone.

I've lost my senior bulldog just 2 months ago, and I am blessed to have my senior Mom with me every day! Gracias Mamita por todo lo que me das! Te amo hasta el infinito!!!!!

Thank you to the 'Human Seniors' models who participated! I hope you enjoyed the session. It was a real honor for me to photograph you!

Clear The Shelters Day {Broward Animal Care and Adoption}

Broward Animal Care an..., Events, Hearts Speak, Pet Photography, VolunteeringpaopaladiniComment

Animal shelters across the country came together this past July 23 for Clear the Shelters! Clear the Shelters it's a nationwide pet adoption initiative that aims to connect animals in need with loving new families. I volunteered my time to photograph all the happy families that adopted that day! Was a day filled with love, slobbery kisses and tail wags! Everyone was HAPPY!!

The final count for Broward Animal Care and Adoption was 45 adoptions and 31 deposits on pets!!! How amazing is that!!

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who came and made a difference in the lives of these dogs and cats. I just wished every day was Clear The Shelters Day!!
