Caroline and Kipling

I’ll be brutally honest.  While I adore watching them compete in agility and obedience, I’m not a fan of the Border Collie.  Too many bad experiences, involving teeth in my legs, my arms, my face, and my Sibes.  But there are some amazing individuals within the breed, and pups like this Little really help me appreciate them.  This is Kipling: a working-line Border Collie. He was about 16 weeks at the time of this shoot.  He is SUPER sweet.  He… Continue reading

Siba Smashes Her 1st Birthday Cake

What a little cutie!  Siba was treated to some Cake Smash fun in our studio to celebrate her 1st birthday.  The family chose a simple, elegant theme and the photos are classic and beautiful.  I’m a lucky photographer!  She was a little bit grumpy from teething pain, but her family’s laughter and enthusiasm gained some cute smiles.  Yummy cake helped too.  Siba was a true lady about it, and didn’t seem too keen on smashing the cake, so everyone stepped… Continue reading

Zeus’s Little Brother

Blundells of Floof

Remember the Blundell’s Fine Art shoot from 2018?  Well these wonderful, brave souls have adopted another rescue husky, and they wanted some updated pawtraits to celebrate his 1st birthday.  This time they decided on a Lifestyle shoot in their beautiful, newly renovated garden for some more natural, real moments of their dogs being themselves.  Neruba had us all in hysterics as she buried her piece of birthday cake and then grumbled at the others when they went near it. … Continue reading

Helga’s Pack

I’m lucky enough to have Helga and her Great Dane, Caeruleum, in my K9 Yoga class at McKaynine.  Helga is a fantastic handler, so Caeruleumlearns super fast. Helga is training him to become a service dog to help her with some challenges related to her MS.  For her birthday, Helga was treated to a special family portrait shoot with her human children and furchild by her very clever guy, Mike.  Hope she cherishes these photos forever.  Photography and editing by… Continue reading
