Fabulous Photography of Fashion for Paws Charity for Washington Humane Society

On March 28 2009 Fashion for Paws lit up the Italian Embassy in Washington DC for throngs of crowds to see. Fashion for Paws is a runway fashion show charity event that benefits and raises money for the Washington Humane Society. Lots of models, fashion and dogs pranced around the catwalk and Sweet Dreams was one of the photographers to help take pictures of this noble and heart warming event. You can view the runway and afterparty photos in Fashion for Paws 2009 galleries. Photographer JB Yong of Sweet Dreams Studio. A final shout out to my fellow photog friends that were there in the trenches snapping up great pictures for a good cause and enjoying the scene - Martin Fousek, Michael Domingo and Alfredo Flores.
"Thank you for being there so I have something to remember the experience by...not to mention everyone looked great at paws due to your professional photography!" - Tiffany Carter, one of the runway models that helped raised over $240,000 for the Washington Humane Society
"Your images were such a hit...and so good. We loved that picture too, I can't thank you enough. You are so talented!!!! I am planning to order some for myself too!" - Beth Murray, a fabulous runway model and dog owner
