Spotted around Town

Simply Spotted Photography has been *spotted* all around town this month! In addition to having my image of Karma the Great Dane selected for the cover of the premier edition of Natural Awakenings Pet Magazine, I was also featured in SARASOTA Magazine’s March edition. SARASOTA Magazine is one of my favorite local magazines and I’m truly honored to have been included in such a beautiful publication!

I’m also super excited that several of my images are now featured on the brand new website for Holistic for Pets, a fabulous holistic pet food store with locations in Sarasota and Bradenton, Florida.

Meet Pixie – Chinese Crested

Posted on March 8, 2010

Pixie here gets her very own post because she’s in a category of her own – awesomeness! Not an IG, not a herder, but a very cool hairless Chinese Crested. I think she’s the first Crested I’ve photographed, but hopefully not the last, because she was SO MUCH FUN. Seriously, this girl oozes personality and spunk…I just *love* her and her rock-star hair!

A big thank you again, Kathryn, for allowing me the opportunity to meet and photograph your crazy awesome beautiful family!

Boomer + Bounce

Posted on March 4, 2010

Are you starting to notice a trend here? First we had the IG’s Bella, Bailey, Brie, and Beau. And today we have Boomer and Bounce. Hmmm… :)

First up is Boomer, who seems to be a very laid back hunk of a guy, who isn’t in a big hurry to get anywhere and was more than happy to hang out and look pretty. He definitely gets the award for the most consistent model…the camera just *loves* him – such a handsome boy!

Bounce, on the other hand, lives on planet Bounce, and thought the idea of having a family portrait was rather ridiculous. To say that she even acknowledged my presence would be a stretch, but I still can’t help but to love her. She crazy, but in an awesome have-to-love kind of way. And it doesn’t hurt that she’s a beauty…even with her crazy long tongue!

Um, Bounce…how do you really feel? :)

Oh Bounce!

Meet the IGs!

Posted on March 1, 2010

Italian Greyhounds are such fun little dogs…despite their fragile appearance, these guys can really MOVE. It was hysterical to watch them run all over the place (along with a Border Collie, an Aussie, and a Chinese Crested). A very entertaining bunch!

First is MACH Bella – Proving that a princess can be an agility champion…

Then there’s MACH Bailey, whose eyes appear to be popping out of his head because he is obviously STARVING. His mom must never ever feed him. :)

And Brie, who seemed to be a little more on the shy side, but such a pretty girl.

And last but not least, Beau. And those *eyes* – gorgeous!
