Rod + Phoebe + Zoe

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!

Fetch. Fur. Love.

Wow, believe it or not, Christmas is only 10 days away! My three little spotted elves and I have been so busy with holiday orders that we’re still (very) behind on blogging, but I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who came out to our recent holiday portrait event at Fetch. Fur. Love in Tampa. I had a wonderful time and met so many awesome pups (and awesome people too)!

Fetch. Fur. Love. is an fabulous little pet boutique located on South Howard Avenue in Tampa. The owner, Rickena, is all kinds of awesome (yes, I’m very much abusing that word today), and she offers a lot of fun and unique items that you won’t find in any of those big-box pet stores. If you’re in the area, be sure to stop by and take a little look around! For directions, click here to visit out her website.

Not only is she super nice, but she’s also gorgeous. And her little pup, Brooks, is pretty darn handsome too!

Thanks again, Rickena and friends, for a wonderful day – I can’t wait to come back and see y’all again!

Meet Bliss

A couple months ago a few facebook friends of mine were passing around a picture of a sweet little Aussie girl who was looking for a new home. Not too long after that, I met her at an agility trial and *sweet* is an understatement!  She has this awesome “Oh hi! Let’s be best friends!!” personality and is just a happy, happy girl. When I found out she would be living with my friends Keegan, Rumble, and Suzi up in Tampa, I was so excited – I don’t think she could have found a more perfect home!

Meet Miss Bliss – she’s 1 1/2 years old and quite possibly the *easiest* dog I have ever photographed. Seriously, this girl can really work a camera! She’s got a smile that’s contagious and those *eyes* – love, love, love.

Courteous Canines

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of photographing Angelica’s entire canine crew – they were a really fun bunch! Well, this past weekend I headed back up to Tampa and this time I got to play with some of their friends and fellow students at Courteous Canine. Even though it was HOT (welcome to summer in Florida!) everyone seemed to have a great time. With several outdoor areas for agility, an indoor (air conditioned) training building, and a DOCK JUMPING POOL, what more could a dog possibly want!?

Suzi would like for me to get out of her way, thank you very much.

You may remember Keegan, the red Border Collie I photographed last December. Not only is he gorgeous, but he’s also incredibly athletic and I might even use the word “graceful” when I watch him on the agility course. Now Keegan, you know I adore you, and please don’t take this the wrong way…but I’m not sure you’re going to score any style points in the sport of dock jumping. But you’re still absolutely adorkable!

Perhaps Rumble can give you some pointers? 🙂

These were just a few of the pups who came out to play…hopefully I can share some more soon!

Last, but certainly not least – meet Power! He is Angelica’s new Border Collie pup and he is SO STINKIN’ CUTE!! Angelica is going to have so much fun with this little guy…that is unless he *accidently* makes his way over to my house when she’s not looking. I seem to have a never ending case of puppy fever, and Power is not helping it ONE. LITTLE. BIT.

Power Puppy!

Thanks again Angelica and friends for having me out to photograph your pups…you all did great! (And yes, even Keegan…who I’m guessing is not happy about me posting that photo and is now planning his revenge.)
