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.

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!

Ride Keno, Ride!

LOGO KENO 6 in car with Linda going rightKeno loves to ride in his Mom’s cool red MG.  He loves the wind in his ears and being with his Mom in his furever home. Keno is a 10-year-old standard poodle. His Mom rescued him four years ago after he lived in a number of homes (through no fault of his own).  He was also abused and very, very thin and malnourished. When his Mom rescued him the veterinarian who checked him over wasn’t sure he would make it.  But six months later he was thriving and truly – finally – dearly loved.  Keno was so accommodating….sitting in the MG looking regal and calm – flashing that cute smile of his. And then cooling down in his favorite barkdust-filled spot after posing in the morning sun.

Lovey Dovey

LOGO LOVEY 1This isn’t Lovey’s official photo shoot….these are just a few photos of her that I took while visiting her “Mom’s” fabric/quilt store in Salem, OR. Lovey, a beautiful standard poodle, serves as the store’s ambassador. She has her own spot under an antique table complete with quilt and soft toys (the duck being her favorite). When not supervising in the shop office she greets customers and gets lots of pets. Be sure to check back for her official photo shoot pictures with her Mom and Dad.
