Second Annual Pet Photo Shoot and Costume Contest Raises $1,000 for Animals Impacted by Hurricane Florence

The second annual Halloween pet photo shoot and costume contest sponsored by Ellen Zangla Photography and Woofie’s raised $1,000 for animals impacted by Hurricane Florence. All money raised will go to the North Hancock County Animal Services Unit, based in Wilmington, NC, which was inundated with animals after the hurricane.

More than 40 costumed (and several non-costumed) pets showed off their best looks for a chance to win one of three great prizes. First, second and third place winners were based on Facebook likes. The winners (pictured in the first three photos, left to right), as well as some of my other favorite pet photos are below. Do you have a favorite photo? Please share which costume you like the best below.

Ellen Zangla Photography: Pet portraits with personality!

M.Photog., Certified Professional Photographer

Professional Photographers of America: 2017 Bronze Medal Photographer of the Year

My pets, two dogs and four cats, are an integral part of the fabric of my life. I absolutely adore them. Like other family members whom we love, I feel that it is incredibly important to have portraits of them that capture the essence of who they are, whether they’re regal or goofy (or both!) or somewhere in between. If you feel the same way about your dog, cat or other fur or scaled kid, here’s how you can learn more about a pet photo shoot with me works. Or feel free to contact me. I am a pet photographer, specializing in photographs of pets and pets with their people. I serve all of Northern Virginia, including Loudoun, Fairfax, Leesburg, Ashburn and Reston, as well the DC Metro area, and I would love to create pet portraits for you that you will treasure for a lifetime.
