The pet industry here in Minneapolis is fantastic. So many great businesses and business owners, and many of us just mesh so well together, you can’t help but collaborate on projects! I first met Pampered Pooch Playground on Halloween of 2008, when I asked if I could photograph their party. Apparently they thought I might be crazy until they saw the images. (which you can see here on my *old* old, old, very first blog ever, started in 2006….. don’t laugh, at least I’ve come a long way) :)
Since then, I’ve hung work at their Doggie Daycare, we’ve shared booths at events, helped create ideas like the Twin Cities Puppy Bowl, and this coming weekend, we’ll be doing a “Doggy Style Photo Booth” at Gay Pride! (the website’s not up quite yet, though) So, when owners Keith and Trycia asked me to photograph their staff, it was a no-brainer. You’ll have to look on their website for the actual human staff (not yet, but coming soon… what’s with all these teaser-links??) but in the meantime, here’s some of the awesome dogs that “work” at PPP.
FYI, if you’re a client of Pampered Pooch, you automatically get 10% off your photo session with me. And that’s ON TOP of most other discounts!
These have actually inspired a new project that’s now rattling around in my brain….. Upside-Dogs! I better focus on Style Hounds for now, but keep an eye out for more Upside-Dogs in the future….
