A few weeks ago, a client requested to have her puppy photographed on glass. What?? Turns out, it was a dang fun project, albeit a bit of a learning curve. After a week or so of research, trial and error, I found a result that made the client happy and definitely pushed me out of my box. What do you think?

Families come in all shapes and sizes, colors and fur. This wonderful Scrimpshire family are regular clients, dog rescuers and valued members of our community. Though I do not usually photograph human families, since they were outnumbered, the dogs helped keep them in line!

This past weekend Twin Falls hosted the Idaho Special Olympics State Games. Hundreds of volunteers and man hours went into the event. Athletes trained for months, many journeyed hours to come and compete. Strangers opened their homes to host athletes and their families, local business donated products and sponsors gave generously to cover all needs. 

I had the incredible opportunity to be the photographer for Chobani, capturing the owner/CEO of the company, Hamdi Ulukaya and his amazing staff. Hamdi spoke at the opening ceremonies for the games, walked in the parade and was gracious to everyone who approached him. A team of volunteers from Chobani worked tirelessly Saturday at the games helping with timing, measuring and filling in anywhere needed to make everything run smoothly all the while cheering for and showing love and support for the athletes. 

Special Olympics is an amazing experience for anyone involved, athletes, parents and volunteers. Training will start soon for the winter games. As a volunteer, there is little else that will top it. Get involved friends, you won't regret it.

Our beloved pets. They are only with us for a short time. They give us love and companionship and unbiased friendship. Grey muzzles and cloudy eyes peering up at us. We want to keep them forever. Take pictures. Have them taken. They are here so briefly then we miss them.

While pet rescue is something I am passionate about, Special Olympics has a place in my heart like no other. For three years I was involved with the local Special Olympics team in Twin Falls, ID. The "Tators" comprised of about 30 athletes and about the same number of volunteers. I was a coach and photographer and was on the Games Management Team for the State Special Olympics Games held in Twin Falls last year. Why am I telling you all this? Though everything, the stress, logistics and planning meetings, I have never ever felt so fulfilled and genuinely satisfied. Being around the athletes, getting to know them, watch them try new things, exceed their goals, watching them succeed is sincerely the best recipe for happiness. The athletes are the epitome of joy and exuberance. Their positivity is infectious and I can't help but smile all the way to my toes when I'm around them. I was not involved with the team this year. I am full of regret for that. Next year will be different and I hope to plug in once again. 

 

This coming up Saturday is the State Special Olympics Games. It will be held in Twin Falls at Canyon Ridge High School. The games go on all day and wrap up with a very fun dance at the end. Admission is free, please consider stopping by and cheering these teams on. There will be hundreds of athletes and their parents/caregivers. Give them a warm Twin Falls welcome. 

 

Pictured on the blog today is Conor Stewart. His parents are the Directors for the Tators. Conor is awesome! He plays guitar, draws for hours and loves to watch "The Emperors New Groove". He's a great guy!
