Merry Christmas!

It’s Christmas Eve and while my spotty pups are all anxiously waiting for Santa Paws to come, I thought I’d take a little moment to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas! I am so thankful to have such wonderful friends, family, and fans – I hope your day is  filled with lots of love and laughter.

Simply Spotted’s New Addition

It’s been sooooo busy around here lately – I just realized that I haven’t introduced the newest addition to the Simply Spotted Photography team! You might recognize this little guy from a puppy session I had last month – he is now known as “Derby” and he is exactly 10 weeks old today.

Derby – 5 weeks

Derby – 8 weeks

Derby – 9 weeks

I’m sure you’ll be seeing lots more of this little guy – although he won’t be little for long! He’s such an awesome pup and we’re having so much fun with him!

My Valentines

My three spotty valentines would like to wish all of our friends a very sweet Valentine’s Day!

Generally I’m not a big fan of using props in my photographs, but I do make an occasional exception when I come across cute items around the holidays. And since my three dogs are all seasoned models, they generally don’t mind too much! Peyton gives his best “sad spotty dog” pose…

Dalmatian Valentines

As usual, Indy was less than amused, but at least she loves me….I think.

Indy Loves Me

And Pongo wonders whose brilliant idea it was to make candy hearts that *can’t* be eaten!

Dalmatian Rescue of Tampa Bay

Today I stopped by the Canine Christmas event at Bishop Animal Shelter in Bradenton to meet and photograph this young spotty boy for Dalmatian Rescue of Tampa Bay. Howie J is just 4 1/2 years old and is a Dalmatian/Pointer mix. He is very sweet and I understand that he just adores children!  For more information on Howie J and other nice dogs available for adoption, please click here to visit Dalmatian Rescue of Tampa Bay online.
