I met Rocco years and years ago at an American Cancer Society event, Bark For Life. Since then, I’ve been following his mom on Instagram and have been keeping tabs on this handsome black Cocker Spaniel. I was tickled pink when his mom decided to move forward and book a session for him!
When you get to photograph a puppy, I instantly think of a tiny fluff ball full of energy bouncing around in front of my camera. Granted, Eisenhower (or Ike for short) was 8-ish months at the time of our session, he was as cool, calm, and collected as a Bernese 10 times his age. I think he wanted to keep his chill face on even though I personally think he was playing off the fact that the click of the shutter made him a little nervous.
We started of our shoot in Ike’s newly redesigned back yard. They had a new pool, spa, deck and grass. It was Ike’s own little paradise! And, that’s when the puppy came... (click on the image above to continue reading)
Get ready for some serious #puglife cuteness overload!!!
Jake and Odin mean business when it comes to rockin’ it out for a shoot. They both immediately went into superstar mode and did their thing for the camera. It was pretty comical to watch. They even did amazing for their group shots - always hard images to capture!
Because of their fabulous talents, we were able to quickly explore all different parts of Jetton Park in Cornelius, including the golden... (click on the image above to continue reading)
Time for another surprise session! Christmas is way over so now I can share! Woohoo!!!
This session with Lady and Precious was a surprise gift for their 2-legged dad. Despite rain delays in November, we were able to pull it off just in time for Christmas delivery. :) Of course, it helped that these two sisters were so helpful with their modeling skills!
Lady is a cute little Cocker/Shi Tsu mix that has gotten to be a little skittish in her older age (she is 13). After some hesitation about the camera... (click on the image above to continue reading)
So if my memory serves me correctly, I'm pretty sure I squealed with delight when I meet the tiny pair of Lilly and Molly. These two couldn't be more opposite in looks when it comes to small dogs. Lilly is a fluffy, white, curlicue Maltipoo while Molly is a dark, wiry, big-eared Pomanauze. Both are super adorable in their own rights but, put them together and they make the ultimate duo!
These ladies were unbelievable tennis ball gurus despite their small size. I was so surprised at their agility and speed! After some quick posing...(click on the image above to continue reading)
Time for another surprise session!
This time I had the honor to work with the absolute gorgeous and amazing Gunner for some Christmas gifts and artwork for my client's fabulous new home. I was pretty blown away as soon as I laid eyes on this seriously stunning boy. His white fur was so...(click on the image above to continue reading)
You guys!!!! I don't even know if I can handle everything that happened during my Charleston/Folly Beach sessions. Seriously. It was magic every. single. day. The last day with this crew was no exception.
These three are no stranger to my camera. In fact, they have be "tortured" by me several times (according to Rookie) for the artwork that is hanging in their moms' clinic - Brawley Animal Hospital. They've been wanting to do a beach session... (click on the image above to continue reading)
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)
