Photos by @vincentjmusi | Sadie. I’m not one to brag, but my first extensively published work came when I was a High School yearbook photographer. It was my first book.
In my junior year, I was sent to a yearbook photographers workshop taught by the photographers who did all the formal yearbook photos for our yearbook.
A cross between long-distance runners and prison guards, these photographers excelled in the art of forcing an average of 1,500 children a day into friendly poses and acceptable smiles before moving on to the next school.
Sometimes I think if my dog work was actually to become a book, it could be kind of a dog’s version of a High School yearbook.
Full of inspired friendly dogs with ambitious and heartfelt quotes, they could list their altruistic plans for the future alongside humorous ribbing from their dog classmates.

Although she’s almost 7, Sadie really showed the freshman dogs a thing or two about how to jump around excitedly at the dog park this year.
After missing out on the State Championships, everyone is looking for Sadie to get back into Varsity Ball Chasing after a mid-season injury sidelined her.
She founded the Shelter Dog Club and counts Beagle, Foxhound and Labrador as her primary influences but is very well liked by her purebred classmates.
Sadie enjoys helping others and was voted “Most likely to kiss you without being asked.” #BFF Sadie
