Macy & Mallory

Meet Macy and Mallory – two beautiful sisters. I am so lucky because I get to live right next door to them. They are huge fans of Willie and love to play soccer with him. A few weeks ago we loaded up and headed to the Dallas Arboretum for a morning of play and photos. I am super happy with the way their photo session turned out because I really do feel like it captures their loving, silly, and happy personalities.

That’s Mallory in the blue and Macy in the purple. So beautiful!

This is Macy’s impression of Willie… pretty darn cute!

Summer at Camp Bow Wow

Camp Bow Wow is one of the best doggie daycares in the Dallas area. They really do love their doggy clients and treat them to fun and treats all day long! We joined up to provide a summer mini session to all the pups at camp. Ever met 50 dogs all at once? Well I have and I loved every minute of it. Each one has their very own personality and are just too cute for words. How could I ever call being a pet photographer a job?? There are a lot of photos here but it brings a smile to my face… almost like school pictures!

If you see your fur-baby in the group let us know by leaving a comment.  Or let us know which fur-baby photo is your favorite! 😉

Thank you Camp Bow Wow for being such a great pet business and friend!

baby judah

Meet beautiful baby Judah, only 2 weeks old and ready for his first photo shoot. He is such a sweet baby and his parents couldn’t be better people if they tried. I just love this family so much. I was lucky enough to meet Judah’s mom, Amy, at my first architecture job here in Dallas. We became fast friends and now I am honored to photograph her new baby. I am excited to see Judah grow and Amy become an amazing mom. Congratulations!

And the proud papa – Kris.

These are two of my favorite photos from the shoot! I love his little tootsies and the photo of their little family is perfect.

I snapped this photo on the left before the session started. I was working on the lighting and noticed his little chin and pouty lips and just couldn’t resist 😉

My Little Layla

The Cameron family grew by one this past weekend. Meet our new pup Layla! I first met Layla at the SPCA of Texas and instantly fell in love with her. She was petrified – extremely scared of people and suffering in the shelter environment. We are guessing that she was running with a pack of strays because she is perfectly comfortable around other dogs, it’s just people that make her nervous – very nervous. I spent a couple of hours with her at the SPCA trying to get her to warm up to me, and hopefully others. But I ended up falling in love with her and just two days later she was here in our home. Layla is such a sweet girl but still painfully shy – we are working on it and she is getting more comfortable with us every minute. She is already best friends with her big brother Willie!

We have no idea what type of breeds are in Layla, but we plan on asking our vet. Any guesses?

Now here is where I need your help. We kept Layla’s name from the SPCA, we felt like it really did fit her shy demeanor. But we are stuck on her middle name. Yes, all dogs need a middle name. Willie’s full name is Wilson Lincoln Kolle Cameron (seriously). We just can’t seem to find the right fit for Layla. So I am asking you guys… What should Layla Cameron’s middle name be??

I think this last photo might be my favorite, as far as Layla’s first day at our home, this pretty much says it all. Such a sweet girl! By the way – I realize that all of these photos are in the same spot, that’s because for some reason she decided the back door floor matt was her safe spot for the day… Many many more photos to come, that is once she’s ready 😉

Family of Ten!

I am so in love with this family of 10, yes 10! 2 parents, 1 daughter, 1 son,  2 cats, and 4 dogs: including a hysterical Jack Russell terrier, a fine looking mutt, and two beautiful Vizlas. They are actually all related to Henry & Winnie – two of my favorite doxens ever. Even with a huge group, each animal had their very own personality. We spent the morning playing with each one individually and then all together. One thing that makes me love this family so much is that they all sort of “adopted” one dog to be their own, and the rivalry is hysterical (even though they really do love them all).

First up is Rope – a beautiful Vizsla, who has won many awards and is just as sweet as can be. Who could resist that smile?

And Nick – a handsome mutt. Nick is a big goofball with the biggest puppy tongue I have ever seen. I got a good giggle from that :)

Meet Gus, the family’s little love bug – seriously he is tiny in comparison to all his brothers and sisters! When I went back to the client’s home for their consultation Gus sat in my lap the entire time – Love it!

And last, but certainly not least, is Maggie. Maggie is Rope’s sister,  yep they are the same age! We can’t seem to figure out why Maggie has gotten some gray and Rope hasn’t. My opinion – the aging process for us girls just isn’t fair 😉  But Maggie is just as stunning as Rope (having won many awards herself) and was ready to show off for me.

While back at home their feline friends were ready for their own session, well sort of. Remember my rules for photographing a cat: the cat is always in charge! These two were a little unsure but were just gorgeouse. That is Biggio on the left and Anni on the right.

A rare family shot – who shrunk Gus??

From that point on it was play time! I hope you enjoy all of my favorite photos from this FUN photoshoot.
