Lockdown -Opening August 1

I took a few in-studio photos when our state went to Phase 2 of the open/lockdown restrictions.  Chester’s Mom and Memphis’s Mom wore facemasks and of course, I wore one too.  And I used a long lens for social distancing.  I sanitize the studio after each session and will make sure I only schedule three dogs per day.  Memphis is a doll…I just love his one up, one down ear.  He posed beautifully.  Chester came to the studio for his four month old photos and then we took more photos outside a month later – again with a long lens.  He’s now five months old and had his first haircut!  He looks like the poodle he is.

I will officially open back up August 1 for both studio and outdoor photoshoots.  Check my website at the end of this month for my Covid 19 rules and for a specially priced re-opening mini session!  Hope to see you soon.

Fall is in the air!

Fall is in the air and these cuties “showed their stuff” during a recent photoshoot at Nature’s Pet Market.  Some went with a Fall theme and some chose Howl-o-ween.  Ziggy and Memphis showed up in striking sweaters and bowties, while Hulk brought his 6-month old brother dressed as a pumpkin.  Grimm wore his trademark purple (too bad you can’t see his purple painted toenails!). And Spork decided she looked fab in her own pink collar. Enjoy!

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!

Leap

Moved out of my comfort zone last week when I took St. Patty’s day pictures.  Decided to include some people!!!  Very scary.  Many thanks to Shayna and Ryan for letting me experiment with them and Piper.  And also, thanks to Kate and cute little Bogie.  May have to do more of this.  I’ll be back at Nature’s Pet Market on May 4 taking photos to celebrate spring and Mother’s Day.  That might be a good time for Mom’s to have their pictures taken with their “pet babies”.  Just sayin’.   Enjoy!.

Kissable Faces

“Kiss Me” – “I’m Yours” – “Be Mine” – each dog I photographed for Valentine’s Day took a piece of my heart.  A number of repeat clients showed up for the session at Nature’s Pet Market and several new dogs sat for their portraits.  Lily, Lacy and Shade as well as Dancer and Bogie were troopers!  Here are just a few of those kissable faces. Next up – you guessed it – St. Patty’s Day.  A top hat, a few shamrocks and a green scarf and any dog (or cat) can be Irish for a day.  Enjoy!

The joint was jumpin’!

OMG…16 dogs!  So wonderful.  Scarves worked on all these cuties (OK..some images I can’t post because their humans are using the pictures as Christmas cards..but trust me…they were sooooo cute).  Handsome, sweet, adorable…each one made my heart sing.  Enjoy!

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!!!!
