The following photographs were originally made as part of a 2017 “Service Dogs of Middle Tennessee” calendar; a project that raised funds for The Arc Williamson County, a non-profit organization that provides resources and support to people with disabilities in our community.  Each service dog has a moving and unique story about how they provide individualized tasks to assist their owners with varying disabilities.  The calendar showcases the personal story of each service dog team as well as educates the public on etiquette, the law, and often misunderstood aspects of service dogs.  My goal with each photograph was to capture the dedication, loyalty, and spirit of each dog in a way that reflects their unique personality.  I am also a board member for The Arc Williamson County.  To learn more about this organization, visit www.thearcwc.org.  
     Show your support of The Arc and visit the website, www.thearcwc.org, to purchase beautifully printed folded notecards.  A set of 13 showcases each local service dog on a different notecard!  All proceeds go directly toward helping children and adults with disabilities in our community.  
     This collection of photographs were on first exhibit at the Williamson County Public Library during the month of July 2017.  Our goal by continuing to exhibit these photos is to help promote a culture of acceptance and inclusion for people with disabilities.  To learn more, follow these links from local media sources:  Brentwood Homepage, Williamson Herald
