Happy Friday!

I’m playing a bit of catch-up over here today but rather than leaving my blog to collect dust bunnies, I thought I’d go ahead and share a couple of images with you of some super sweet Pitties I had the pleasure of shooting recently. There will be more to come soon, but in the meantime, I hope you and yours have a fantastic weekend!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

With today being Valentine’s Day and all I figured this would be the perfect (and most obvious) day to share the Valentine’s card we just shot for 26 Bars & a Band. It features their ridiculously cute matching Preppy harness and leash. Kinda makes me want to slip on a pair of penny loafers and go for a stroll around the park – with the dog, of course. Incidentally, that little pupper is our very own Butters. She’s starting to get used to the modeling thing. Anyway, wishing you all a love-filled day!


Confession time. Sometimes I stalk dogs. Not in a creepy need a restraining order kind of way. More in the “Oooh cute puppy, must take a picture of it!” kind of way. Case in point, I saw Olive at Barkitecture where I was taking event photos. Immediately after spotting her I followed her around like I was the puppy. And honestly, I was not the only one. Olive had a small crowd following her around oohing and ahhing. So imagine my excitement when I go an email from Olive’s owner asking me to take some portraits of her before she grew out of puppyhood. Done! Happy me.

Love Is In The Air

I absolutely love getting a save the date, but now I might love shooting one even more! Especially when you get May and Zeta as models. Look how sweet they are sitting there displaying the upcoming wedding date of their humans. And speaking of their humans, congratulations, Meghan and David! Wishing you both a lifetime of love, happiness and pitties. Thank you for letting me share a little piece in your very special day. xo

Pawsh Magazine

During the few weeks of chaos that surrounded our wedding back in November, the fall issue of Pawsh magazine came out. And it’s fantastic! I am so proud to be a regular contributor for Pawsh and was thrilled when I found out Oliver had made the cover. Look how handsome he is in his faux fur. You can check out the magazine in it’s entirety here.
