Even though Griff gets into his fair share of mischief, he makes up for that with his steadfast loyalty and charming good looks. He is a three-year-old catahoula mix adopted through the K9 Rescue League. He had a rough start living outdoors so he didn’t know anything about living with people, but his new family worked tirelessly to not only get him well, but also gave him the attention and training he needed. You would never know when meeting this calm, social, and sweetly playful boy that he had such beginnings.

And don’t even get me started on his markings! It’s just another one of the many reasons I love mixed breeds – so many unique combinations and looks. Isn’t he gorgeous?

Kodi, Berkeley, and Gracie

Meet Kodi, Berkeley, and Gracie! Kodi is a black lab who has soulful eyes and the air of an infinitely wise elder. He is calm and sweet, always wagging his tail and taking it all in. We celebrated his 14th birthday during the session with a special cake and some party hats for good measure.

Berkeley is a 12-year-old yellow lab/vizsla mix, a sweet girl who loves to be the center of attention. Don’t tell her she’d be considered a senior, as she still loves to play and run. Gracie is the baby of the pack, a 10-year-old mix with those eyebrow markings we all love. She likes to remind everyone that she’s the youngest, always bounding out in front to grab the toy or treat! She’s happiest when she’s carrying a stuffed animal in her mouth and patrolling for squirrels.


Simba is a very sweet cockapoo who didn’t even see the camera when I arrived – all she saw was a new person who was now available to pet her nonstop and play keep away with her mini tennis ball. She was one of the happiest and bounciest dogs I’ve ever met. She’s almost two years old now, but she still has 100% of that wide-eyed puppy enthusiasm for everyone and everything. What a delight she was to photograph!
