Dog Portraits

Lola, Teddy, Chunk + Roxy - Charlotte, NC

Lola, Teddy, Chunk + Roxy - Charlotte, NC

As East Coast sessions start ramping back up, I’m reflecting back of some of my favorite images from this past Fall in Charlotte, NC. This session with Lola, Teddy, Chunk and Roxy had me and their mom running around like crazy…all while completely laughing our faces off!!! This was quite the little pack! I think each…

Lilly and Molly

Lilly and Molly

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)

Windi & Crickett Beach Session

Windi & Crickett Beach Session

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)

Karma

Karma

I tell you what. I think dogs are absolutely gorgeous and special animals. However, Karma here knows he's extra fabulous! He is a German Shorthair Pointer that can frequently be seen in the show ring. In fact, after our session together, I went to one of his shows and he won Best of Breed right then and there! Right?!?!?!

Karma's mom spends a great deal of time with him...working on structure, core, agility, etc. She taught me so much during our chats and I feel... (click on the image above to continue reading)

Murphy

Murphy

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)

Eva and Sadie - May Flowers

Eva and Sadie - May Flowers

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)

Adele and Jack

Adele and Jack

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)

Blog Challenge #1

Blog Challenge #1

So before I jump right into the blog-share goodness that is to come,  I want to give everyone a quick update on the goings-on over here. It's a little related to what's below but anyway, here I go. The winter is always a little slower in photoland just because of the not-fun temperatures and the generally nasty looking landscape. Boo. That doesn't mean I'm not working behind the scenes! I've been busy with some commercial work, general business stuff (because, sadly, a photography business isn't all about taking pictures), and some other exciting new things...
