A fluffy, goofy, energetic ball of fur. Yup. That about sums up Murphy, a sweet little rescue that was found matted, sick, and heartworm positive. He was nursed back to health by some wonderful vets and placed in a home full of love, treats, and lots of toys. And per Murphy, they better be cloth or fabric toys...non of that rubber nonsense. Haha!
For our shoot, we hung out in his domain...a nice fenced-in yard where he is...(click on the image above to continue reading)
A few weeks ago, my dogs were restless and needed a nice break from their normal stomping grounds. I felt the same way. Plus, I needed to make sure the location I selected for a commercial shoot was looking nice and spring-like.
We hopped in the car and went to one of my favorite shooting locations (I often recommend this secret place to my clients). As we walked to my favorite field, we turned the corner and I was almost blinded by...(click on the image above to continue reading)
Horses are majestic creatures and I wish I had the opportunity to work with them more. Because I didn't grow up around them, I honestly do still get a little intimidated by their size and strength. But then I see their personalities shine through and I'm reminded that they are like any of our smaller furry pets. They just want love, affection, and treats! ;)
Jehosse and Bullet's session was rained out the first go-round, but then coincidentally got rescheduled to Derby Day. How fitting! It ended up being... (click on the image above to continue reading)
What is the first word that enters your mind when you hear, "1-year-old Chocolate Lab puppy"?
Well, if you're me, it's FUN!!!!!
Then what do you do when you find out her name is Spaghetti?!?
That's about what happened to me when Spaghetti's session was officially booked! It was really happening! That day seriously couldn't come fast enough... (click on the image above to continue reading)
Before I even started Mac's session, I knew there was a special story behind this dog. As I questioned his parents, this amazing tale of a bond between dad and dog came to life in front of me. I think I was staring with my jaw hanging low in awe of the relationship. I am certainly not a writer but it would be a shame not to try to share this story.
It all started 9 years ago when this family was looking for a canine companion. They were trying to go with a local Poodle rescue but... (click on the image above to continue reading)
Jimmy's story is one of survival, love, heartbreak, and triumph.
Just before Labor Day 2014, Jimmy started having trouble with his leg. Having thought it might be a sprain, his parents took him over to their vet. They were quickly sent off to a specialist for x-rays. Doubts and questions started to form because why would they be sent to a specialist for a little sprain?
Well it turns out the vet made the right call. The specialist found that... (click on the image above to continue reading)
Fall is my hands down busiest time of year. But, when I get a call for an Angel Session, I will do everything in my power to squeeze a session in. That's exactly what happened with Jager, Kona, and Bubbles.
Jäger, a very handsome Doberman, was the main focus of our shoot as he was battling the dreaded "C" word...cancer. The cancer had already resulted in the removal of... (click on the image above to continue reading)
Aaaaaaah. Spring time. Seriously my favorite time of the year. I love how everything comes to life, the temperatures warm up, I can plant flowers, and sit on my front porch again.
Here in the South, the beginning of Spring is marked by cherry, pear, and peach blossoms. When those first purple, white, and pink blossoms appear, a perma-smile enters my face. :)
Spring also means the beginning of the most amazing shooting season. The colors are stunning and the warmer temperatures mean dogs are ready to work off that cabin fever. The kickoff to my Spring season was this oh-so-fun shoot with Adele and Jack.... (click the image above to continue reading)
The idea of an Angel Session is never easy on a pet parent. Therefore, I try to keep the shoot lighthearted and fun and we try to focus on the positive. For example, the evening of Ollie and Snoopy's session, the weather cooperated gorgeously and we had a great, relaxing time hanging out around the house. We had scheduled plenty of time since we were starting with a kitty (and you never know how they'll react to a session) so everyone had the chance to be...

Hey guys! I have a commercial photo shoot scheduled for Sunday, May 3rd (rain date is the 10th). We are in need of some small dogs with the following criteria:
- Under 25lbs
- No puppies (prefer around 2 years old but will consider older)
- MUST be well-trained - have a good stay command, sit, etc
- Good off-leash abilities are highly desirable
Any breed or mix of breeds will be considered. Especially looking for... (click the image above to keep reading)
Yesterday I posted the sad news about the loss of Little Kitty. When I went searching for pictures of her, it dawned on me that I had way more pictures of my dogs than of my cats (more guilt just chimed in). That being said... (click the image above to continue reading)
April has been one hard freakin month. I've been sick, I've paid out the wazoo in taxes, and worst of all, I had to say goodbye to one of my cats, Little Kitty. It all happened so quickly and it was one of the hardest decisions I've ever made in my life. I'm still riddled with guilt and I'm hoping time will heal that along with the pain.
The night that she gained her wings, I had a dream... (click the image above to keep reading)
