Bella & Sophie

Bella & Sophie are two of the sweetest Chihuahua sister’s in Dallas. Bella, who is the older of the two at 7 years old, was my immediate friend… well I’m not exactly sure if she loved me or my pocket full of treats to be exact, but she turned out to be a natural in front of the camera. Her little sister, Sophie – who is 3 years old, needed a little more coaxing than my pocket full of treats. She wasn’t sure of my “huge” camera that was almost the same size as her! But after a few of my tricks she was ready for her close up as well. I had such a great time getting to know these two love bugs! I just love photographing Chihuahua’s (or Chihua-la’s as my 3 year old niece would say :)) They have the best expressions!

That is Sophie on the left and Bella on the right. Gotta love those summer photo shoots with blue skies!

 

Best buds… One paw up and one paw down :)

I thought this was hysterical! Sophie has a “peep” hole in her fence where she can check on the neighbors dog. It is exactly the right height!

“We are the two best friends that anyone could have… Yes the two best friends that anyone could have…”

Murray & Lucy

Every now and then I am lucky enough to get to spend an afternoon with a gorgeous cat or two. And that is exactly what Murray and Lucy are for sure! Talk about a change of pace. Photographing two beautiful cats could not be more different than photographing two dogs. The first thing I always tell my cat clients is “The cat is in charge of this session.” Murray and Lucy were definitely in charge of their own session and it couldn’t have turned out better. They were a bit cautious at first, but with a little patience and some loving coaxing they eventually came out of their shells and showed me their curious personalities :) That is Murray on the left and Lucy on the right!

I just love cat whiskers! Check out Lucy’s long white whiskers :)

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!

“No More Monkeys Jumping on the Bed”

I am so lucky to have such a beautiful niece, Ansley. She has become a bit of my muse – which I think she’s okay with because it means she gets to go on “adventures” with Aunt Alli.

Ansley loves to sing “Five Little Monkeys” and also loves the line of books by Eileen Christelow: Five Little Monkeys. She was so excited when her mom and I gave her permission to jump on the bed. These photos remind me how fun it is to be a kid!

New Blog

Check out my new digs! For those of you who come to my blog often you might have noticed it being “under construction” Well, Ta-Da, here it is. The new and improved blue mutt blog. I would love to hear what you think. Likes, dislikes… typos 😉  I can use all the help I can get in that area. Spelling has never been my “thing” but that’s okay because I love the fact that photography is my “thing.” 

Lots of new post coming soon! I made a trip down to Houston to visit family, I always travel with my camera which is a good thing – because I ended up doing 5 different sessions in 3 days… whew!
