little bullet

If you looked up the definition for Jack Russell terrier you would find a photo of Bullet. Just a ball of energy ready to play at any minute, hence the name “bullet” – he is all Jack Russell. Bullet has one of the best smiles I’ve seen on a pup and loves having his photo taken – which makes me love him even more. What a huge ham! Bullet’s mom is a very talented artist and designer and I am so excited to soon have one of her pieces hanging in my house. You can check out her work here: nickiefeddersen.com. I have to decide what colors I want in the painting because it hasn’t been painted yet. I am so amazed that I will have a one of a kind painting just for me.

After sending out Bullet’s gallery to his mom, I received a very touching e-mail from her. You see Bullet is sick with cancer so we are busy celebrating Bullet’s time here with us. I wanted to share a small part of her e-mail with you, because it shows why I love what I do as a pet photographer!

“I truly believe you captured the essence of what defines Bullet.  He is a cross section of big attitude, a lover, high energy, extremely focused, happy, a hunter and a baby all at once.  The photos show each of these qualities and them some.  I was totally surprised that two of the images captured his baby face, exactly as it was when he was a puppy.  I haven’t seen that face in oh so long! He looks amazing and so happy in all of them.  They make me so happy. “

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.
