What is “Soul Dog?”

 

The best way for me to explain what encompasses “Soul Dog,” is for me to tell you about Kerouac.

Kerouac was my soulmate. She was the source of my light. She was the one thing in the world that could easily soften the hard edges life sometimes presents to us. She brought me joy, and helped me to grow into the person I am today.

Kerouac was my greatest teacher. She taught me how to love deeply, how to let go of the things that hold us back, and how to be present in the moment. She showed me why this connection we have with dogs is something to not only be celebrated, but something to be shared. It’s worthy of being held up to the light and shone across the universe for all to see and feel.

For 15 and a half years, Kerouac was my Soul Dog. Our connection didn’t end when she left this world. It lives on through me, and every photograph or video I capture of the dogs you love.

Soul Dog is Kerouac’s legacy, and we are here to keep it alive through shining your brilliant Soul Dog light.

The Soul Dog Story Contest

This contest is the result of part of my journey through the grief process after saying goodbye to Kerouac.

Over the past few months, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about what comes next in my life and my business. My world is different without Kerouac here, but my purpose is the same. My work has always been about creating ways for my clients to stay connected to the animals they love through capturing their stories in photos. And even bigger than that, it’s about creating opportunities for all of us to connect on a deeper level through sharing those stories.

Part of my journey as a creative human, artist, and business owner is to continue to discover new ways of doing the work I love. In the very near future, I will be launching video as another creative form for capturing your Soul Dog’s story. 

To celebrate how excited I am about this new addition to Dirtie Dog Photography, I want YOU to be a part of it through sharing your Soul Dog Story with me. I will be selecting one applicant to receive a Soul Dog Story session package that will include a video and photos.

Join me in celebrating your once-in-a-lifetime connection by applying to win the opportunity to have your Soul Dog Story captured.

The contest closes Sunday September 26th at 11:59 pm PDT.

Exact details along with Terms & Conditions of the contest can be found at the bottom of this page.

F.A.Q.

Just a few questions you might be pondering…

 

I have more than one dog. If I win, can they all be in the video?

– The prize is for a video featuring the winner and one dog, but if you win, we can discuss upgrading you to an experience that can include up to two other dogs from the same household.

 

What if I’m not sure if my dog is my Soul Dog?

– That’s okay. Sometimes it takes a long time to know just how much our dogs mean to us. This is why taking the time to celebrate what you have NOW is so important. Whether you know for sure, or you’re still figuring it out, apply to win this opportunity that will capture the two of you just as you are.

 

Can my family join in?

– There can be up to 2 people and 1 dog featured in your Soul Dog Story prize session. It’s very important that we honor the beautiful connection you have with your dog, so minimizing the number of people involved helps to keep the energy joyful and calm. (Feel free to contact me via my inquiry form if you’d like to chat about booking a custom session to include more of the people who love your dog.)

 

I don’t have a dog, but I know someone who’d love this! Can I apply for them?

– Unfortunately, no, you may not apply for another person to win. You are welcome to share the contest with them so that they can apply for it themselves, though!

 

 

Pets nearing the end of their journey take priority in my schedule. If you're in need of a photo session ASAP, let's get you to the front of the line.
