Layla and I covered more than 600 miles of travel this past week with round trips between Anchorage, Ninilchik, Homer and so many places in-between.
It was all for a good cause - supporting an impressive community of volunteers called Homer Animal Friends.
The adventure started with a book signing (It's Important to Paws) Friday, April 11, at Homer Book Store. Our gracious host, Sue, invited Layla and I into her store to sign and sell books. The Flying Dutchman Bakery of Anchorage provided sweet goodies as part of the fundraiser.
Saturday, we photographed 30 cats and dogs during a Clicks for LIcks portrait project. The numbers are still being calculated but I already know it was a great success. Dogs of every size and shape turned out for the event with their adoring people. And after eight hours of non-stop photography; nearly 800 shutter clicks and at least two bags of dog treats - we all walked away smiling.
Special thanks to the volunteers who helped throughout both days. Extra special thanks to Co-Producer Denise Hansen for all of her help organizing this event with our studio, Homer Animal Friends, The Homer Chamber of Commerce and The Homer Book Store. What a wonderful effort.
We're looking forward to a return visit one day soon. We can't stay away!
