Pet Pawtraits

Blundell Trouble

One Siberian Husky is a handful.  Three plus a Malamute puppy is insanity.  Usually.  But Nubs and Bear surprised us.  They were super chilled and happy to maintain their brilliant sit stays and down stays while we played with the amazing sunset light.  Loki, the young black and white Sibe, was a little more spirited, but then, he is a teenager, and, well….his name is Loki!  Izzy the Malamute pup kept us entertained with… Continue reading

Nadia’s Soulmate is a Dog

Sonja’s Beautiful Family

Meet Sonja’s beautiful family.  She, her hubby and their many many floofs welcomed their very long-anticipated baby boy, Chris!  Baby Chris wasn’t too enthusiastic about posing, and kept us quite busy for a good few hours, but Sonja was so chilled and easy going about it you’d swear she’d been doing this for years.  True to her relaxed parenting style, she wanted authentic lifestyle portraits with natural light.  Of course, the dogs got a little time… Continue reading
