A Little Flower

The day after I photographed Samson and Sedona, I got the chance to photograph their little sister also!

She showed up with a flower in her hair and in a fabulous little pink tutu that her mom got on ETSY.  I'm a sucker for anything pink! 

This was the happiest baby I have ever seen.  As long as you were talking to her and making silly faces she was loving it!  There was not one pouty face until we decided to change her outfit.  As soon as her mom took off her tutu she cried.  If I looked that cute in a tutu I wouldn't want to take it off either! But that only lasted a second.  She cheered up not long after and the shoot went on.

There were so many great shots from this photo session! Her face is so expressive when she smiles and laughs and I even caught a few great serious faces in there.  

Thanks again!

Samson and Sedona

When I agreed to photograph two boxers at the same time, I thought for sure this was going to be an exhausting and exciting photo shoot.  Anyone who has met a boxer knows that they are sweet hearts, super friendly and FULL of energy. 
But, when I met Samson and Sedona, I was really pleasantly surprised at how well trained they are!  They know so many commands and are really great at listening to their owners.  

When their pink flamingo came out of the toy box they were so excited. This would be my favorite toy too! It squeaked, rattled, crinkled and when you shook it, it made the strangest noise. Plus, its pink!

I got some really great shots and by the end of the photo session we were all exhausted!

Thanks so much for letting me play with you guys!

"Indeed our lives have been enriched beyond measure because of the love of a dog.  We have been adopted by that most irrepressible of clowns, the most intuitive of comforters, the most selfless of companions - the Boxer."

Pretty in Pink

Not long ago I spent a great afternoon playing with Sadie's big sister.  (Sadie is the Great Dane that I photographed not long ago.)

I loved her pink patchwork dress and UGG boots! I didn't realize that they made UGGs that small!

She started off a little shy, but before I knew it she was running around and having a great time at the playground. 

Thank you guys so much for letting me play with you!

I'm starting to work on getting a website soon!  I'm so excited!  I have been working so hard on building my portfolio and creating marketing materials.  I feel like I'm finally making progress in the right direction.

I'll keep everyone updated on the website progress and hopefully it will be ready to go really soon!

" Don't wait until everything is just right.  It will never be perfect.  There will always be challenges, obstacles, and less than perfect conditions.  So what.  Get started now.  With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident, and more and more successful."

At only ten months old, Sadie is definitely the biggest puppy that I have ever photographed!  She was so much fun and surprisingly well behaved for a puppy.  She has a ton of personality and her photos came out great!
