Out of the Woods

I'm happy to be working with the wonderful organization Out of the Woods . I'll be photographing some of the precious critters they're trying to find homes for. I got the chance to meet four of them the other day. I even got to name this little guy. Please say hello to Benjamin or "Benny" for short.

~From their website
Out Of The Woods was established in early 2007 by experienced rescuer Kathy Woods along with Shawn Schouweiler and fellow friends in rescue who wanted to fill a need for a different kind of rescue; a need in where they believe that all domesticated animals regardless of their size, breed, color or situation deserve to have a loving home.

We rescue our pets primarily from the rural areas of Arkansas, some are abandoned and/or abused. We rescue from animal "hoarders" or collectors who take in more than they can possibly care for, sometimes in the hundreds.

We promote efforts to spay and neuter all pets; one of the ways we do this is by assisting in finding low cost sterilization to families in rural areas with limited incomes. We must stop the needless breeding that occurs when families cannot afford to properly care for their pets.

We also focus on helping independent rescuers who take in and then care for "stray" pets until an adoptive home is found.

OOTW is a private, not-for-profit, 501(c) (3) organization.

One of my secret weapons:

I am always asked "What have you seen?" , "How would you do this?" or if I have any recomendations from many brides. After I first and foremost recommend they hire a planner, I usually can provide some pretty good insight to the day.

And now..... from my top secret, under lock and key, if i tell you I might need to kill you bookmarks comes my number one secret weapon.

It's no secret StyleMePretty.com hands down, take the cake for the most informative and inspiring wedding site I have ever read. If you are planning a wedding, love weddings, work with wedding, would like to have a wedding someday or used the word wedding five times in once sentence like I did, head over there stat!

Happy July Fourth!

"For more than two centuries now, our country has inspired hope, and fostered change at home and abroad. So today I hope you will join me in expressing your thanks for our freedom, appreciation for the military personnel who protect us, and gratitude for the opportunities and the responsibilities that come with being an American."~ Bill Clinton
