One of my local small business clients is EarthWise Pet Supply, located at 11328 Montgomery Road, in the Harper's Point shopping center. I've done a few sessions with them for some personal and business work. You can see some of my images on their Facebook page and their website under the "store team." The owners, Dan and Lisa Woods, are a lovely couple who, along with their daughter Olivia, are huge pet lovers (they currently have two dogs and three cats). Their love for pets is obvious in both the way they interact with their human customers and the attention they give to all the four-legged customers that come in, as well.
The store opened at the beginning of August 2014, and I was privileged to take part in their grand opening event held in the Harper's Point shopping center parking lot across from their store. It was a great day and well attended by many people and pets. EarthWise is a store that features high quality pet foods and products designed for optimum health. They feature a holistic approach to the well-being of their furry customers; Dan is a great source of knowledge when it comes to the foods they offer and the nutritional benefits of each. If you are looking to better your pet's diet, you can't go wrong with stopping in EarthWise and speaking to Dan about what you are looking for, he is sure to direct you to the best options they offer for your pet (and they have some of the very best commercial foods available.) In addition to the pets supplies, the store features a well-appointed self-wash area, a grooming parlor that does both dog and cat grooming (owner Lisa Woods is the cat groomer), and a cat adoption center that features cats from Ohio Alley Cat Resource. Since the store's opening, they have adopted out almost 30 cats and kittens! The cat adoption center is great, because you can go in and interact with the cats waiting for their forever homes. Since I am currently without a cat, I sometimes go in to meet the available kitties and just play with them for a little bit. It's hard not to want to take all of them home; I'm so glad that 26 people have not been able to resist! When you walk into the EarthWise store (and I highly recommend you do just as soon as possible), you will see some of my work on the wall behind the counter. I've had the privilege of photographing the entire Woods family, from the humans to the furry family members. While you won't see cats Über, Cinder, or Jasmine in the store (although Jasmine was one of the cats adopted from the adoption center), you will frequently see the Woods' dogs Annie and Weeenie. You can, however, see all of them on the canvas display on the wall behind the counter. If you would like to have your own canvas (or other medium) display for your home, contact us via the hot pink "Book Now" button to the right of this post or give us a call at 513-288-1650 or send us an email at suzi [at] suzipix.com.
