Prancing Paws Pet Photography | A Look Back at 2017

A Look Back at 2017

December 28, 2017  •  Leave a Comment


I don't think there could possibly be another word to describe 2017 for Prancing Paws. There have been so many amazing sessions, events and moments this year that I had the most ridiculous time trying to narrow everything down for my "favourites" list.

I photographed 600+ pets this year, helped 15 owners make a final lasting memory with their pet, photographed 5 babies, and 27 families. As a prancing paws family, we raised approx $2,000 for charity (you are all amazing).

In the world of firsts, I was able to photograph horses, goats, chickens, and ducks. I had my first "commercial" photo shoot.  I traveled North in to and photographed Kap Kig Iwan Park which I now consider one of the most beautiful places I have been to.

I did sessions in Sudbury, Barrie, Parrysound, Kirkland Lake and Englehart and had one family come all the way from Ottawa for photos!

I took on a personal project which ended up being one of the highlights of my year - "Dog Breeds Around the World". It was an eye opening experience to learn so much about all these breeds right here in North Bay!

Perhaps one of my favourite moments of 2017 was the adoption of miss Bonnie. Our little Texan hurricane rescued from the throws of Hurricane Harvey. Expect to see her a lot at the farmers market this summer!

Each and every person that has liked my facebook page, shared a post, come out for an event, hired me for a session or just stopped by my booth at an event and said hello, I thank you. I have met so many amazing and wonderful people and pets this year that I don't know how 2018 could possibly be better then 2017...but it is already gearing up to be!

I thought when I wrote this blog, I would choose my top 12 photos of 2017...when I had it narrowed down to 130 of my favourite photos, I realized that wasn't going to work. Each of the photo's below is a favourite. It may not be technically the best, but something about it made me love it more then the rest.

I hope you enjoy looking back even just a little bit as much as I did. I hope to see you all in 2018:)
