Buster + Barclay | Min Pins!

Posted on January 29, 2011

“Fearless animation, complete self-possession, and spirited presence” – that would be a Miniature Pincher, according to the breed standard. With BIG personalities, these guys clearly didn’t get the memo that they are “small” dogs!

I’ve always been found of Min Pins and so I was super excited to meet up with Buster and Barclay last week in Lakewood Ranch, one of my favorite local communities. These guys were a TON of fun! In addition to being very handsome and most definitely “spirited”, these two are also rising agility stars. They might not be famous *yet*, but one of these days…

Buster is 6 years young I’d have to say that he’s the sweet one. Not that he isn’t capable off showing a little attitude, of course, but it’s a little hard to take this face very seriously. *SO* sweet.

Barclay, on the other hand, SCREAMS “fearless animation” loud and clear. But here’s a little secret – he’s not as tough as he would like you to believe. Don’t tell him I told you!

It only took a few hours of walking around the woods and playing in the paw park, but look! A happy, semi-relaxed, smiling Barclay. He’s probably going to be really mad that I’m sharing this one – it totally ruins his tough boy persona!

A big thank you to Buster and Barclay (and their assistants) for a great session!

Toby + Duke | Equine Photography

I hope everyone’s year is off to a great start! These past few months have been a blur, but now that the holidays are over, I’m ready to take on 2011! I have lots of exciting plans for this year, but before I leave 2010 completely behind, I still have a few more images to share.

I had a family session back in early December and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect shoot – a lovely family, beautiful setting, gorgeous light, and *horses*! Even though our primary goal was photographs for the family Christmas card, I couldn’t resist sneaking in a few shots of just these two. I have to add that I was warned in advance that they would most likely *not* cooperate, but not only did they cooperate, they were absolutely perfect models!

I believe that’s Toby on the left and Duke on the right…

Such a fun session! Stay turned for more fun from *last* year (I’m still getting used to saying that!).

Happy New Year!

Goodbye 2010; hello 2011!

What an amazing year it was; thank you to everyone who helped make 2010 such a memorable year for Simply Spotted Photography. It’s been an absolute pleasure to meet and photograph so many wonderful pets and people over the past year, and I’m looking forward to meeting many more new friends in 2011!

To kick off the new year, I thought I would share a few images of my Derby pup. He’s 16 weeks now and growing up much too fast!

Happy New Year!
