Remy

My friend Remy has one of the sweetest personalities and an incredible family to go with it. I actually took Remy’s photos quite some time ago but it was a huge secret because Remy’s parents were surprised with a gorgeous photobook of Remy on Christmas morning.  Surprises are my favorite… I love to hear about the owner’s reactions 😉  (I heard there might have been a tear or two shed…)

I am so excited to finally share all of his beautiful photos with everyone! He is a striking black lab with a silver face showing his years. Such a sweet old dog with a great heart who is loved very, very much!

happy valentine’s day!

Ever spent a Valentine’s day getting hugs, kisses, tail wags, and love from over 75 dogs?? Well I have and it just might be one of my favorites as of yet. These pups are full of love for their owners and I was thrilled to capture each and every one of them. Camp Bow Wow, one of Dallas’s premier doggie daycares set up a special pet photography day for all their pups – so that they would have a gift to take home to their mom or dad. Just too darn cute if you ask me!

If you see your fur-baby below let us know by leaving a comment. Or let us know which photo is your favorite :)

Thank you to Camp Bow Wow for providing such an excellent service and being such a great friend!

snow day!

Make that three ice days and one snow day to top it all off! Yes I know the entire country is covered in ice and snow but it becomes a holiday/celebration type ordeal when it happens in Texas. Plus my dogs LOVE the snow. They can’t get enough of it and I can’t seem to understand how their toes and tummies don’t freeze, but then again I’m not a dog… I caught Layla (on the left) and Mr. Blue Mutt in action this morning here in the Dallas snow. Hope everyone is staying warm and having fun this winter 2011!!

Check out last years snow photos (back when Willie was an only child)

travel bug… spain

The last, but certainly not least, post on my recent travel bug is Spain. While in Spain we visited Barcelona, Madrid, and took a short day trip to Segovia. All of the places we went were absolutely amazing! Amazing sights, amazing people, and amazing food! Really amazing food – I think we both gained 5 lbs each… oops 😉

Sagrada Familia is an amazing cathedral in the heart of Barcelona that has been under construction for 129 years now. Construction began in 1882, and is still underway every day, seriously – we were walking past guys in hard hats! It is impossible to capture the scale of this building in photos – it is designed to feel like you are in a forest of trees. Too cool!!

We also took a day trip from Madrid to a small town in the mountains called Segovia. It’s main attraction is this amazing aqueduct, a huge cathedral and even a castle!!

One of my favorite mornings in Barcelona was a visit to their most famous street market: La Boqueria. I have never seen anything like it. Tons of fruits, vegetable, candies, nuts, chocolates, fish, cheese, the list goes on and on! It was a photographer’s heaven. Each morning the vendors come out early and set up their goods in the most beautiful ways. You can really tell that they take pride in their products! And boy was it good – we walked around sampling and photographing all morning!
