Rod + Phoebe + Zoe

Posted on April 29, 2011

Three peas in a pod. That’s how I would describe this little family – each one different and special in their own way, but together they make the perfect little trio. I just love them!

First up is Phoebe, a Dachshund/Beagle mix. She’s such a sweet girl and (as I previously mentioned) has the *best* ears! I love how different they look in every image. And those eyes…such a supermodel!

Rod, the Puggle, is such a funny guy – he cracks me up! He also has some talent in the multiple ear personality department – clearly learned from Phoebe. : )

And last, but not least, Zoe! This is one awesome little cat. She’s very friendly, but like many cats I’ve worked with, a little kitty paparazzi work (and catnip!) was involved. I love her markings…such a pretty girl!

Super big thanks to these guys for an awesome session!

I had a fabulous time working with this awesome trio last weekend! I’ll be sharing more images soon, but in the meantime here’s some introductions…

Phoebe = Best. Ears. Ever.

Little Miss Zoe, Kitty Cat Extraordinaire

Meet Kylie | Mini Aussie

Posted on April 22, 2011

Kylie is a gorgeous 1 1/2 year old Miniature Australian Shepherd. I had so much fun with working with her during our recent session. She’s a little shy, very sweet, a tad bit silly, and most definitely a momma’s girl! She has some of the *best* expressions – I had such a hard time picking my favorites, but here are just a few…

Kylie shares her home with five (!) of the most beautiful cats I’ve ever seen. Since we were losing daylight, I didn’t get the chance to photograph all of them, but wow – what a gorgeous family!

Thanks Kylie and family for a wonderful session!

Puppy + Pukai + Keiki

Posted on April 20, 2011

I always have the best intentions to keep this little blog up to date, but somehow I lost a week. How does that happen!? In any case, I have had some super fun sessions that will be shared here very soon (I promise!), but in the meantime, I’ve been keeping a few (very patient) Lab friends of mine waiting…

First up is Puppy, the honorary lab of the bunch.¬†She’s actually a Flat-Coated Retriever, but don’t tell her that! Aside from being one gorgeous girl, Puppy is also an agility superstar. She’s earned 10 (yes, 10) MACHs. And for my non-agility friends, that’s 10 AKC agility championship titles…quite an accomplishment, to say the least! I just love-love this girl.

Pukui Lekos is a very handsome boy who was rescued around the same time as Poki (see previous post) following Hurricane Charlie. He thinks that photo shoots are rather boring…I didn’t take it personally. : )

And then there’s Keiki Lekos. Keiki is also a well known Florida agility dog. She doesn’t have any MACHs (yet!), but she is one of the fastest and most *entertaining* dogs to watch on course. Just check out those muscles!! And those ears! She reminds me of a cartoon character…all she needs is a superdog cape!

Big thanks to my lab friends (and Puppy!) for a wonderful session!

Kai + Paka + Poki | Lab Friends

Posted on April 1, 2011

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing a big ‘ol (extended) family of Labs. Labs = fun. Labs + purple door = SO MUCH FUN!

First up is Kai Lekos, a very handsome guy! Around here he’s known as MACH4 Kai (that’s 4 time Master Agility Champion to my non-agility friends). He’s a sweetie…love that lab drool. : )

Next up is Poki, and if I’m remembering correctly, she was found and rescued after Hurricane Charlie. She’s a bit of a fearful girl, but she photographs *brilliantly*. There’s just something about her…I’ve worked with many, many dogs over the years, but very few have eyes that seem to tell a story quite like hers do. Beautiful.

And last, but most certainly not least, is Paka Lolo! I love this girl – she’s also an agility champion and I remember meeting her a few years ago at a trial when she was obsessively trying to stick her nose in my armpits! Apparently she likes deodorant. : )

That’s it for part 1 of the lab tales – check back soon for part 2!
