Shady Acres Pet Ranch is more like a farm than a typical boarding facility. On three acres of land, lush, green grass awaits hounds who can frolic in three play yards dappled with sunlight thanks to the property's 100-year-old oak trees. Pups spend their daylight hours playing with similarly-sized friends under the watchful eyes of pet-friendly staff members. Then, as the sun sets, they can hunker down in heated and air-conditioned closed-door suites that offer privacy for dogs who keep diaries. Though farm-like in many ways, the ranch does boast a number of modern amenities where it counts, including having a CPR– and First Aid–certified caretaker.

When Alicia Donovan began her photography career, she was worried about not having a studio. Using nature as her backdrop, though, she noticed something that doesn't happen beneath hot studio lights—people interacting with the world around them, feeling comfortable in themselves. So she made it a principle to work outdoors, to illuminate her subjects in the available light of sun rays. Although she specializes in capturing pets and children in their element, she also extends her talents to life's milestones: senior photos, graduation photos, and holiday portraits.
