Fall, Winter and the Holidays

Fall, winter and the holidays were in the air when I photographed these cuties last weekend.  Java the gorgeous black cat would only pose with a collar or hat.  Rocky the Boxer kissed me, my assistant and the lens on my camera while Buddy the Lab posed quietly.  Murphy the 11-month old Golden Retriever was beyond excited.  And Thornton (who I’ve had the pleasure of photographing since he was 10 weeks old – he’s almost five now) sat regally with a Christmas bow around his neck.  Bandit helped me with a lighting test and wore a cool Christmas hat.  I’m looking forward to more photo shoots on November 24, December 1 and December 8.  So fun!!!!


Pretty as a Penny

Is she gorgeous or what???  Penny belongs to the son of the owner of Buena Vista Flowers in Buena Vista, Oregon.  She was visiting Mary’s floral acreage when I stopped by toLOGO 1-Penny take pictures of flowers.  I quickly changed my mind and focused on this beautiful two-year old Boxer. She is soft as velvet and just a sweetie.  After a few tentative “what is that black thing you are pointing at me” growls, she relaxed and posed for me. She followed me around and sat dutifully in front of a lovely old blue door on the flower barn.  She let me photograph her for over an hour!  With those big eyes and that cute nose she was a natural.  And what elegant lines and beautiful coloring she has.  Thank you Penny for a wonderful afternoon.  Enjoy the slide show!

Regal Rome

Rome looking left with logoWhat a photogenic boy! Rome is a six-year-old boxer. His forever family rescued him through the Willamette Humane Society when he was six months old. I had so much fun with him…he is a real poser and just doesn’t have a bad side. He’s a silly boy too… he gave me lots of sloppy kisses and he had a great time showing me his bone! Thanks for a wonderful afternoon in the sun.
