Maine Pet and Event Photographer: L.L. Bean Dog Days of August
August 23: L.L. Bean Dog Days of Summer, Freeport, Maine
I was super psyched this summer when I received the go to be one of the vendors at L.L. Bean’s Dog Days of August event. With a background in journalism, I adore wandering around and photographing dogs and their people. I grew up in nearby Harspwell, Maine, only a couple towns over from Freeport. We would go to the LL Bean store once a year (now there’s a whole campus of stores!) as well as do some back-to-school shopping in Freeport. So this event was a lot like coming home.
There was lots of action: a 5K Road Race benefitting Coastal Humane Society (a shelter dear to my heart), a parade for the Coastal Humane Society then doggie events throughout the day including contests, demonstrations of flyball, trick training, and how K-9 officers do their job. The grass near the stage provided a soft place for people to hang out and enjoy the warm summer day and there were lots of vendors to visit and learn from. All in all, this was one of the highlights of my summer!
