Fuzzypants Pet Photography

Fuzzypants Pet Photography Hi, I'm kinda in love with your dog.
Wanna show off their awesomeness with pro pics of your perfect pooch? I gotcha covered Northern Virginia and DC… and you too NYC.
(18)

Hey there, I’m Carina, the (slightly goofy) creator of Fuzzypants Pet Photography ®. It all started after snapping a photo of my Samwise contorting his 16-pound self into an epic kitty yoga stretch. I couldn’t help myself – I’m pretty sure my exact words were “Samwise, you sure do have some fuzzy pants.” I’ve had a camera attached to my hand since I was a teen (F.I.T in NYC, baby!), and I have been photographing pets since 2011 – though I like to refer to sessions as a “portrait par-taaaay” (which is probably the only time this textbook introvert goes to a party.) I am a geek at heart, and I have a fondness – um, obsession – for all things Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, and Batman. (I learned the hard way that wildly curly hair can’t pull off a Bruce Wayne haircut. No, I’m not going to share the photo!) I have a thing for Panera’s Broccoli Cheese soup so if you want to talk puppy breath, kitty toes, or (OMG) Harry Potter over coffee get in touch and let’s browse the muffin display.

Disaster Preparedness

Make sure you and your pets are prepared.

Coastal Virginians should visit KnowYourZoneVa.org to learn their evacuation zone, review the Hurricane Evacuation Guide for preparedness information and continue to closely monitor Tropical Storm Florence: be prepared and listen to authorities for official instructions as the storm nears the East Coast.

All Virginians should review vaemergency.gov/hurricanes for preparedness information as hurricanes are a threat to the entire Commonwealth: flash flooding, inland flooding, river flooding, tornadoes, wind damage and prolonged power outages can occur.

Emergencies come in many forms, and they may require anything from a brief absence from your home to permanent evacuation. Each type of disaster requires different measures to keep your pets safe, so the best thing you can do for yourself and your pets is to be prepared.

TL;DR: In the perfection that is the Universe, a fitting swan song for Fuzzypants.

When I started the journey towards Hounds and Hearth, my mentor/coach/friend J.Nichole Smith ran through an exercise for finding your "why" that involved detailing your perfect day. Mine started with this:
Despite not having set an alarm to wake me, I crack my eyes open at the first blue hint of sunrise. I like to think that it's just the daylight calling out to me but it's more likely that one (or both) of my cats are staring at me, waiting impatiently for breakfast. I roll over beneath the warm blankets and see a little furry face touching her cold pink nose to mine and I can't help but laugh. I toss the blankets off and shiver for a second when the sudden change in temperature nudges me awake.

Shuffling down the few stairs to my kitchen without tripping over Samwise and Rosie proves to be an exercise in futility and makes the trip to the breakfast bowls an early morning obstacle course.

While the kitties munch happily on their salmon feast (and stick their feet into their clean drinking water), I whip up some tea and toast a sesame bagel. Then I add more cream cheese than is entirely necessary. (Note to self: buy cream cheese.) Grabbing my breakfast I open the French doors that reveal a cute little yard just big enough for a built-in pool, a few lounge chairs, a fire pit, and the garden that thankfully grows its wildflowers on its own; at least as far as the privacy fence will allow. I love watching bees hopping through the flowers but my lack of a green thumb definitely requires some independence on the part of the plant.

The sky is just starting to brighten as I check my calendar and jot down a few thoughts and notes for the day ahead.

Today I directed all my Fuzzypants Pet Photography session links to Hounds and Hearth. It feels so weird - like I'm undoing 8 years worth of work... but I know that the move was necessary in order to move forward.

Our new sessions are designed to create your haven and to help those in need of their own. Today I am proud to share that portion of every single session will be donated to Homeless Animals Rescue Team (HART) and Loudoun Abused Women's Shelter (LAWS)/Loudoun Citizens for Social Justice because we believe every being deserves a safe, secure place to call home.

How are you spending your rainy Saturday?
Join me over at Hounds and Hearth...

I have to admit to being a little spoiled when it comes to house-cleaning. I'll keep up with day-to-day straightening up, dusting, vacuuming, laundry... When it comes to deep clear-the-room-and-wash-everything cleaning, I hire every few weeks. Today I woke up with the plan to go hiking in the rain but something about the coziness of a rainy day, making breakfast, and the quiet snores of my kitties prompted me to stay at home and fill the place with candlelight and sparkle.

Loving your clean house is one thing, but lovingly cleaning it is something else. Getting my hands on my stuff, listening to the stories of the chipped knick-knacks that once decorated my grandparents house, lingering over the photos that are important enough to frame, remembering why I live with all the things I live with makes the task of undoing, polishing, and putting rooms back together so much more than just a chore.

When I sit down in a couple of hours I'll have rekindled the joy I have in this space.

Change.

It is a-comin'.

About 2 months ago I had an epiphany. It was one of those things that sits there in the back of your mind, quietly nudging you every now and then but you push it away because you're just not ready to listen. Then one day it makes you listen. It shoves everything out of the way, screams in your face (and frankly punches you in the gut) demanding to be heard.

I'm listening, Hounds and Hearth
