Doggies for Dementia© with Jeff and Kim Borghoff

Jeff and Kim Borghoff were the February 2019 family for Doggies for Dementia© with the goal of gifting families impacted by Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias. Carmen’s Legacy Productions photographs one family a month including photos with the and their dogs and then a week later when they get to see their photos for the first time. I visited Jeff and Kim in New Jersey and had a wonderful weekend visiting and photographing them with the adorable Buddy, his service dog in training. Another goal of Doggies for Dementia© is to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias. By helping people to understand and see the many faces impacted by the disease, we hope to reduce fear and experience less isolation and loneliness. Changing the World One Image at a Time

Just See Me-Sacred Stories from the Other Side of Dementia WINS!

I’m so grateful to all who support my mission of raising awareness for Alzheimer’s Disease and related Dementias. Just See Me- Sacred Stories from the Other Side of Dementia was given a beautiful honor! awarded third place in the 2018 AJN Book of the Year Awards in Creative Works. This is HUGE-especially for a nurse practitioner like me. It was also a reminder how we are not alone on our mission of Alzheimer’s Awareness! The more we understand, the less fear, isolation and loneliness our most fragile brothers and sisters will experience. Families who shared their stories probably had no idea how we would all become advocates for Alzheimers Awareness and touch so many hearts. I envision a more compassionate, kind and loving world. Who is with me?

Falling in Love with Spider Monkeys

On a recent trip to Dominican Republic, I had the experience of visiting The Monkey Jungle.

This incredible tour lasted about an hour.  We were in a big group, and everyone loved this part of our day!  I was there as Carmen Buck and since I don't go anywhere much without my camera, Carmen Buck Photography was in the house.  😀 

The income raised with our admission tickets goes directly to the free medical and dental clinic on the grounds of The Monkey Jungle.  It was an amazing visit in many ways.  Our timing was perfect because the babies were still riding along their mother's backs and nursing periodically.  These beautiful animals hugged, kissed and played with one another. They landed on our heads and our shoulders as if they had known us for years. It was a surreal experience!  

Located in an ancient grotto is a botanical park with 30+ free roaming squirrel monkeys.  These monkeys love visitors and love to sit on shoulders, heads and feed from special plates.  At the bottom of the grotto is an enclosure for our rescue capuchin monkeys who have been physically or nutritionally abused.  There are 100’s of other free roaming animal throughout the park. 

Thanks for visiting Carmen Buck Photography blog. I thought it was time for something a little different!  Please share the love and leave a comment!
