Shyla + Laynie - Studio Session

We are in the middle of a nasty snow storm here in Charlotte. Reasons like this, and honestly because I hate the cold, is why I love having the option for studio sessions. These are perfect for these cold, winter months that aren't so pretty as well as the dog days of summer when it's unbearable to be outside (doesn't that seem so far away?). We can curl up in the studio, relax and not worry about the rain, snow or temperatures out the front door. Sweet! Shyla and Laynie spent an evening in the studio with me and I just fell in love with these shorties. They had sweet little personalities and, I swear, they smiled for their group shot...

Doggy Model Call

Its time to dust off that ol' studio equipment and get ready for the winter time! For those of you that know me well, you know that I hate the cold...especially after living in Phoenix. Fortunately, taking pictures during the colder seasons usually isn't too bad because all that running around keeps me pretty warm. However, I really want to expand my studio work to add an option for some of the doggies and people that, too, don't like the cold and don't want to have a photo shoot outside. Also, if the demand is there, I would like to offer this option year-round just to have variety! Anyway, to get things rolling, I am performing a doggy model search to build my portfolio! The session will be FREE and will take place in my Cornelius, NC studio. I am hoping to do around 8-10 sessions between August 2nd and August 8th. I am not looking for any particular breeds, sizes, shapes, colors, etc, but I am looking for a good variety. I also ask that your dog be comfortable in new settings and situations and that he knows some basic commands. If you are selected, you will be required to sign a model release form for your pup and also participate in a future in-studio ordering session where you will select an image for a FREE 8x10/8x12 from your session. You will also be able to order any items from the full print and product list with absolutely no obligation. Plus, you can receive 50% off the on-location session fee if you choose to book a shoot in 2010.

So, how do you apply? Just shoot me an email ( with the following information:

  • Your name and contact info
  • Dog's name, breed, eye color
  • Some fun facts about your dog
  • His/her favorite toy
  • Commands and/or tricks he/she knows
  • Most importantly - a picture of your doggy!

Please have your submissions in no later than Sunday, July 25th. I will announce my selections on Monday, July 26th. Unfortunately, I won't be able to select every doggy that applies but I promise it is nothing personal!!!

Please contact me with any questions you may have!
