Dogs Dogs More Dogs – and Cats Too!

October, November and December – these three months were so fun!! I took images of 44 dogs and 9 cats with Santa at Pets Etc. on December 5 for a fundraiser. Donations that day raised $400 for Prevent A Litter. I also got to photograph 19 dogs and 3 cats in the studio**. I also photographed a gorgeous Lab/Pitbull mix named Ryder. He posed beautifully on the foot bridge at Minto-Brown Park. We got lucky with with no rain and even a bit of sun. Here are just a few. Hope you enjoy these pictures! I know each one of them put a smile on my face!

Looking foward to continuing to photograph dogs and cats both in and out of the studio in 2021.

**Yes, I wore a mask, all clients wore masks and Santa wore a mask until he was ready for me to take the photo. All social distancing requirements were followed and the studio was sanitized after each appointment.

A whirlwind!

December was a whirlwind!  I photographed 105 dogs and six cats!!!  Oh my gosh…each one was adorable and so happy to meet Santa.  I took a break in January, but February rolled around and guess what…Valentine’s Day photo shoots!  And then…wait for it….St. Paddy’s Day in March.  Great start to 2020!

Christmas in June!

Santa made a surprise visit at Nature’s Pet Market while I was taking 4th of July photos.  So of course I asked if he would pose with some of the cuties who came for their portraits.  He obliged and I was happy to get some great shots to use for promotional purposes for this year’s Christmas photo shoots.  Aren’t they all adorable?  There’s Ziggy in his 4th of July scarf and Dakota, Penny and Dexter all lined up.  Fuego had a few things to tell Santa about not wanting to live with any more dogs (Loki and Murphy share his home).  Kuna opted for a red collar with bells for her photo with Santa and Spork wore her 4th of July scarf handmade by her Momma. Lucy, the Diva, opted for a Santa hat. Such fun we all had!!!  Enjoy!

Merry Merry

2016-wheatie-xmas-cardHappy holiday from Molly and Dugan….our sweet soft-coated Wheaten terriers who were the inspiration behind NosesTailsPaws Pet Photography.  Besides sharing their holiday Christmas card they wanted to share a few holiday pictures of Thornton who I have known since he was 12 weeks old and who I had the pleasure of photographing in holiday finery. If you are thinking about having your pet’s portrait taken in 2017, please take a look at my site. Feel free to contact me with questions.  I would love to take pictures of your dog or cat – or you with your pets.  Merry Christmas!

Holiday Faces

I’ve been having such a great time the last couple of weeks taking holiday shots of some of the sweetest dogs. I partnered with FINAL - all three on couch w logoa local boarding/grooming/training facility called Suite Dog Daze to provide a holiday scarf photo after a bath and grooming special.  Aren’t these three dachshunds just the cutest dogs ever?!!!  I’ve taken photos of Australian Shepherds, Dachshunds, Labs, and mixed breeds  And every one of them were such great posers!  Of course a good photographer’s assistant and lots and lots and lots of treats helps!  Enjoy!

BAILEE-25 w ntp logoBailee’s Mom and Dad wanted holiday pictures for their Christmas cards.  We were lucky to find the only 45 minute time-frame when it wasn’t raining!  I took these images in a local park and was lucky enough to still find some color.  Bailee is a rescue and she’s about two years old. She is small but mighty.  Love those ears!  Bailee ‘s Mom and Dad are newlyweds. They were great to work with and all three are quite photogenic.  They braved the wind and chill but you’d never know it by their beautiful smiles or Bailee’s attentiveness.  There is no question that Bailee feels she is the star of the show!
