I’m so excited to announce the latest in my travel sessions! I’m headed back to the Carolinas - this time to both Charlotte, NC and the Folly Beach/Charleston, SC area. If you’ve been waiting for the green grass, gorgeous flowers or fun beach photos, now is your chance!!! Check…
It's Friday so that means I have to wrap up the week of the lovely Charleston foursome. I've had a blast sharing each of these lovely pups with you and I hope you've enjoyed getting to know them! As a side note. These furry love bugs belong to Dana Cubbage, an UH-mazing wedding photographer in the Charleston area. Def check her out if you are in the market for a wedding photog!
So last but not least, I bring you Beckham. Dana and I have been friends on Facebook for many years and I actually remember when she brought Beckham in as a foster. He was so little and in need of lots of love and care. He was found in a parking lot all by himself at just 6 weeks... (click on the image above to continue reading)
When Sunday jumped out of the car, I immediately fell in love. Yeah...that big block head, huge smile and wiggly bum sucked me right in. Then, as if it couldn't get any better, her mom pulled out this amazing floral necklace for Sunday to wear (and it didn't even phase her one bit!). The soft greens, pinks, and corals of the collar played so well against the pastels of Historic Charleston. It was magical!!!
Sunday's story is equally inspiring. She was in a high-kill shelter... (click on the image above to continue reading)
Sometimes things in life just work out. Even after trouble and turmoil, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel.
Sadly, a few weeks before my Charleston/Folly Beach sessions were scheduled to take place, Camden was rushed to the emergency room and immediately went into surgery for mass on his spleen and a belly full of blood. Despite the trauma of the event, Camden came through and started to recover.
There were talks of coming down to Charleston early to make sure we'd get his session in but, happily, Camden was getting... (click on the image above to continue reading)
This is going to be a special week over in my blog world! Each day this week I'm going to feature one dog from the pack you see below. This amazing foursome is comprised of (from left to right) Brady, Beckham, Sunday, and Camden.
Over a two day period, we wandered the streets of Historic Charleston capturing all the lovely architecture, greenery, and super-cool textures we could. We dodged raindrops, other dogs, tourists, horses, and more, but these dogs didn't skip a beat! I was amazed at how focused... (click on the image above to continue reading)
Last week I introduced you to Windi and Crickett - two pretty cool and fun Shelties that spend their time as therapy dogs in the children's hospital. A couple weeks after our session, we took a day-trip with their mom to Folly Beach, SC. Their mom has spent quite a bit of time down there and she volunteered to show me around so I could be more prepared for my upcoming beach sessions.
I've done a number of sessions at the beach but on this particular day, the wind was seriously CRAZY! We tried to keep the pups out of the blowing sand but they didn't seem to... (click on the image above to continue reading)
Nothing brings a smile to your face like your dog bouncing along and exploring the beach. Now is your opportunity to capture that with amazing images that you'll treasure forever!
I'm so excited to announce that Pet Portrait Beach Sessions are now booking! 2015 brings a new location - Folly Beach, SC. It's super dog-friendly, beautiful and just a short drive from Charlotte. A limited number of sessions are available from... (click on the image above to continue reading)
A cute, wet, orange face with a huge smile was send in an email and three girls instantly fell in love. No, it wasn't a picture of some hot model guy coming out of the ocean with a fake tan. This is what happened when Brittani, Dana, and I got Lilian's submission for our Charleston model call. Lilian is a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever who apparently spends as much free time as possible getting wet and going swimming. Her mom was super excited at the thought of getting pictures of her when she was actually dry! Luckily for her, we were more than happy to oblige. :)
Lilian, aka Lily, often causes quite a stir when she's out in public and people tend to flock to her because of her unique qualities. I'm personally a sucker for her happy smile...
Oh and the feet. I just love the feet. So girly and feminine! This almost makes me wish my hands were hairy. Then I remember I'm a person.She's just a beauty...She also has a Princess Leia impression. She puts her ears back to recreate the hair effect. Pretty awesome!Thank you so much, Lily, for staying dry for us while we photographed you. It was an honor!
