“Gracie” appears in the HeARTsSpeak article in the latest issue of the Bark Magazine; pet portraits by tracy bodeo photography benefiting rescue animals.

Have you checked out the current issue (Sept./Oct.) of the Bark Magazine (sold at B&N bookstores, etc.)?  One of the images I had taken for a client of their beautiful dog Gracie (rescued from Safe Haven), appears in an article about HeARTsSpeak, a group of which I am a member.  HeArtsSpeak is a non-profit organization whose vision is to “unite the individual efforts of animal artists & animal rescues into collective action for social change” with one goal being to stop unnecessary killing of adoptable animals.  The article talks about the origin of the group, the artists who donate their time to photograph shelter animals, and the power of a good photograph in helping to get these animals adopted.  To see the complete article click here:  BarkSept2011 or go to the online version of the article “Putting the Art in Heart”, here: http://thebark.com/content/putting-art-heart .

Gracie is shown in the article below with the blue-ish background.  My favorite part about this image is the thoughtful look on Gracie’s face.  After getting pictures of the whole family with Gracie, I wanted to get a picture of her alone.  She was very nervous as I put her in the center of the studio.  She sat still because she is such a sweet dog, but she looked over at her mom as if to ask “why?”  I got one of two shots of her and we were finished.  She couldn’t wait to be back by her mom’s side.
