Titus Needs a Loving Home

TITUS is a sweetheart who needs a good loving home! He is so gentle, loving, cuddly, playful, and well mannered! I got to spend a couple hours with him yesterday driving to and from the studio and capturing some adorable shots of him. He listened so well and took the treats so gently, he loved pouncing around playing fetch and was so careful letting me take and throw the toy again! I would take him home in a heart beat after just spending a short amount of time with him, but needs to be the only dog in his home. I promise he will fill your heart with love and affection! Please help find Titus a home, he is currently at Wagglebottoms, where they have been fostering him for a while. Anyone who adopts him, will receive a FREE online gallery with all of his portraits to download and hang all around the house!

Riley With Her Dog Gypsy

I got the opportunity to capture Riley, who is a senior at Yorktown high School graduating this Sunday. Her momma wanted a session with her 12 year old dog Gypsy, so that is what we did! I absolutely love being able to capture pets in photo sessions. When I was a senior in high school, I lost my childhood dog, Biscuit to old age. That previous summer I had had photos taken in my backyard with him and those photos mean the world to me. Being able to look back at those images, after he was gone is so special to me, and I will hold on to those for the rest of my life.

Kellyn, Christian, & Finn (The Doggo): Mother's Day Minis

So when I was in preschool we passed the microphone around the stage at graduation and told the audience what we wanted to be when we grew up, I said "I want to be a veterinarian when I grow up!" Then nervously passed that mic to the next kid. I later on learned that veterinarians had to put animals down when they were sick or old, so I changed that dream real quick and just decided I would own all the dogs and cats I could. Now that I am doing my dream job, with several animals of my own, I get to photograph the cutest doggies ever, and it makes my heart so happy! 
Check out Finnegan, and his two sweet parents, Kellyn &  Christian Reid.

I was so happy when they came strolling up with the cutest doggo Finn for a Mother's Day Mini!

Birdie in the Studio

During our session I found out that both Birdie and I have Type 1 Diabetes! She was such a good little model in the studio. Last fall I had captured some photos at Birdie's mom's home and she was running free and crazy, even at 11 years old, so we decided to do some portraits in the studio so that she was little more confined. Birdie's favorite part of her session was all the treats that mom brought her.

2018 Fall Minis with Ashley, Zach, & Dorothy

This is the third time I have had the chance to work with Ashley and Zach! I look forward to every time I get to capture their family photos, the two of them are so laid back and I always have great conversations with them. This is the first time that I got to meet their new puppy Dorothy! Ashley kept telling me that she apologized ahead of time for how crazy she would be, but Zach and her brought the treats and she was absolutely perfect for the camera! I had such a blast with this family, and I can not wait to watch them grow in the future and capture their doggo throughout the years!

Stonoff Family

Mom, Dad, River, Stella, Snoopy (the dog), a horse, and a donkey… oh and dad bought a truck during their session so we had to take pictures with it! I absolutely love unique family sessions and this one was so much fun! I can say this was my first session that included a donkey, a horse, a dog, and a dump truck! So Ryan (dad) found his father’s old dump truck and actually bought it during the family session (How awesome!?) I laughed so much during this session, Stella and River were so full of energy and love for each other. The two of them would look at each other and make silly faces, then eskimo kiss, and tackle each other in the field all while giggling!

Kip, Carbon, Mugsy, & Lil Dipper

All four of my fur children have very unique personalities and I have always wanted to capture them together in a photograph. So this winter I decided to take "family" Christmas Photos in my in home studio. Let's just say they did not go as planned and it was probably hilarious to watch me try to herd all four of them. The only group photo I got is actually 5 different images merged into one, but I am happy that I captured the ones I did. Here is just a small sneak peek of all of the photos I got that day.
