What we’ve been up to! Puppy Yoga and the Rainbow Rescue Project- Chicago Pet Photography Studio

This summer has been flying by! Now that the Dog Days have officially arrived for all of us lovely Chicagoans, we wanted to take a minute to look back at the last month- its been a busy one!

We started out the month with a Pride inspired idea:

The Rainbow Rescue Project.

Chicago pet photographer rescue dogs in pride outfits

In June of 2023, the team at Candice C. Cusic Photography came together to celebrate Pride month and support the LGBTQIA+ community. Our aim was to increase visibility and recognition for our LGBTQIA+ friends, family, and loved ones in a unique and impactful way. Thus, we embarked on a project that had never been done before.

Working in collaboration with Chicago Canine Rescue and Perfectly Posh Paws, we photographed over twenty adoptable dogs. These photos served as the foundation for a Pride flag, and we titled this special endeavor the Rainbow Rescue Project.

To follow that up we tried something else completely new…


Puppy Yoga!

Our most recent event, Puppy Yoga, was an absolute delight for both yogis and pet lovers alike. Participants enjoyed a rejuvenating yoga session while surrounded by adorable adoptable puppies. It was a truly heartwarming experience witnessing the joy and relaxation that unfolded as these furry yogis joined us on the mats. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all who attended and made this event a resounding success.


We partnered with @Chicago Canine Rescue and held our first Puppy Yoga with adoptable puppies!!! Stay tuned to see more and how you can join in the next one! #chicago
