The end of the year editing whirlwind is coming to a close…so that means its time to get some posts up that I have been eager to share!

This is Earnest.  I met him while photographing Mocha, the homeless chihuahua puppy you met in the previous post (side note: Mocha’s foster parents decided he is not going anywhere, so he is HOME for the holidays!).

This shoot was new for me as I hadn’t done an on location kitty session before.  Earnest was a bit timid, so I popped on the 70-200mm and hung out, peeking at him around the kitchen island.  He would get brave, come out, and then {click} he would flee.  After about 15 minutes, he warmed up nicely.  I had a blast and look forward to more on location work!

Earnest was adopted from one of the Nebraska Humane Society’s off-site adoption locations at PetSmart.  His mom went in with no intentions of adopting a cat, but decided to “just look.”  He melted into her chest and seven years later he is still warming her heart.


This handsome chihuahua mix puppy is Mocha.  He is approximately 7 months old and is currently being fostered by the wonderful Heather Lee.  She has been blogging about her time with Mocha as he goes through “Heather’s Finishing Academy: For the socialization and potty training of little men” (you can read about his adventures here.)

Mocha did a fabulous job during his shoot and I was very impressed with the progress he has made.

Puppy faces!

Mocha loves to play with toys and is particularly fond of this cat toy…..just don’t tell the resident kitty Earnest.

Snack time.  Mocha is very treat motivated and proving to be one smart dude.

If this boy has stolen your heart, please contact the NE Humane Society’s foster care office at: FCare@nehumanesociety.org.  He’d love to have a FOREVER home for the holidays:)

Check it!

I am elated to announce that the newest downtown doggy shop, Soggy Paws, is featuring some of my work.  Stop by Saturday, November 5th during their grand opening for giveaways and sales.  And tell Paul that Farrah sent you!

And my favorite part is that all dogs featured are rescues!  If you are looking to add to your family, don’t shop, ADOPT!

Jack (on the left) was adopted from the Nebraska Humane Society and lovely Lucy (a.k.a. “Whooper Puppy”) is from Hearts United for Animals.

They have a fabulous self wash area as well as high quality food, treats and toys.  And goodies for the felines too!
