Last spring I had the opportunity to assist my sister, Alice G Patterson  photograph small business owner,  Annie Taylor.  Annie has two dogs and I’ve been wanting to share this photo of Annie and her awesome dog Satchel.

From Annie : “Satchel is 10 1/2 we think.  He was a stray in Tennessee and then brought to the shelter in West Kennebunk, Maine (http://animalwelfaresociety.org) where we rescued him in 2004.   He was estimated to be about 6 months old.   It was love at first sight.   He was actually about to go home with another family the day we first saw him. Luckily this family decided to bring in there other dog to meet him (the shelter had just named him “Tuxedo”) and for whatever reason the 2 dogs didn’t click. Well we were right there to scoop him up after that. Their loss and our very special gain.

 We refer to Satchel as ‘ Satchel the Wonder Dog’ and ‘The Sheriff’.   As soon as we brought him home he became the protector. NO need for doorbells or alarm systems at our house!   He is also the most calm and loving dog (to everyone!) you will ever meet.  Everyone loves our Satch.”

 One of things I love about Annie is that she chose a photo of her and Satchel to be used on her about page.  If you are in Central New York and are need a new photo taken for your business needs, Alice is running a special on portraits.

What a lovely portrait. Your sister does nice work.

And I think it’s great for someone to share what’s important to her on her business page. It gives you a feel for the values of someone you’re thinking of doing business with.

What a gorgeous photo! I’m in dire need of About page photos too, as you well know, and this is so inspiring to try it again!

Such fun cat pictures! Love the one with the fire in the background. Great picture of Annie and Satchel.
