NKLA Super Adoption Family Photobooth


This past weekend I helped hundreds of people and hundreds of shelter animals celebrate very bright futures together at the NKLA Super Adoption Family Photobooth in Los Angeles. Along with my two amazing assistants, we had the honor of creating the first family portrait for each newly adopted animal. There were over 1000 adoptable dogs, cats, bunnies and a few guinea pigs at the La Brea Tar Pits, attended to by an army of volunteers working with Best Friends Animal Society, NKLA, and many Los Angeles animal rescue groups. Our family photo booth was free for all new adopters, making it such a wonderful gift and a joyous experience for all our guests. Looking at this enormous collection of portraits, there is no denying the power, emotion, and beauty of the bond so quickly formed between a rescued shelter animal and it's new human family. In these first few minutes of life together, animals develop a sense of relief and excitement that is completely visable. Their lives have been changed forever- no longer having to live confined to a small cage in a city shelter, or even passed around between foster homes. Now, these animals that were once abandoned will be incorporated into a forever family and given the love and care they deserve. And their human families will receive that exact same thing in return. What a beautiful moment to be able to record.
