Peace, Love, & Pitbulls

A few months ago, a local Las Vegas Bully rescue was shut down leaving 30+ dogs homeless and in danger of ending up at the high-kill shelter. Luckily all of the dogs made it into temp foster homes or into boarding but unfortunately the story hasn't ended happily with many pups still needing permamnt foster/forever homes.

Rollo was one of the dogs in need of rescue who was suffering from emotional seizures due to the kenneling environment. I took him on as an independent rescue and have desperately tried to find him a long-term foster or adoptive home with little luck. 

It's hard when the dog in question is a 90lb Pit Bull. He's an incredibly big goofball and is a lover...Not a fighter. It's his size and intense golden eyes that seem to throw people off, judging the cover before reading the book. Yes, he is particular about the company he keeps with other dogs but with people it's not an issue. He's a large puppy that needs basic obedience training and consistency after being in boarding for so long.

I did this Peace, Love, and Pitbulls shoot to help find Rollo his forever home and to show that even a 120lb girl can handle a lovable 90lb gentle giant.

Please share Rollo's story. 
He's available in the Las Vegas area for adoption but out of town adoption will be considered for the right home. Email jessicaraquel_e@hotmail.com if interested.

My best friend's are having a baby! {Maternity Session}

Mike was one of the first friends I ever made my freshman year in High School. Junior year, Eva became one of my best friends. We all hung out in the same circle even after graduation so when Eva told me her and Mike were dating, I remember saying... "Hey, that makes a lot of sense." A few years later they got married and now... My best friends are expecting their very first baby in November. I'm beyond excited to meet my little niece. This maternity session is my favorite for many reasons but most of all because it's focused around people that I adore.

You can see more from this session here.
