Buckley is a very striking one-year-old standard dachshund who is quite possibly the fastest and the longest dachshund I’ve ever photographed! He loves to play fetch, which is beautiful and funny at the same time, with his shiny coat and svelte figure, but his floppy ears flying every which way. When he’s not playing, he loves to follow his people around and give them kisses whenever he’s allowed. Isn’t he handsome?

Lily & Toby

Lily and Toby are Yorkie/Bichon mixes who are too cute for words! They are the biggest cuddlebugs I’ve ever met – when we started the session, we sat them down on the bed by themselves and they immediately wanted to be picked up and held instead. They both love being in your lap and resting their head on your shoulder.

Lily is the little boss and LOVES her treats, while Toby is the athlete whose favorite pastime is chasing water from the hose. He will play fetch all day long, while Lily can only be bothered to run (well, trot!) if there’s food involved. Lily is six years old now, and Toby will be six later this year. Aren’t they the sweetest duo ever!?

Jaimoe & Georgia

I had the honor of photographing Georgia six years ago when she was four years old – I can’t believe she’s ten now! She still as active as ever, thanks to her new little (but huge!) brother Jaimoe. Jaimoe’s two now, and was just skin and bones when he was rescued off the streets. Of course now he looks amazing, and it was also amazing how quickly Georgia took to her new brother. They hit it off almost immediately and are the perfect pair. When they’re not wrestling and tugging together, they’re napping together!

Georgia’s favorite thing is still the ball, and while her markings have lightened a bit, that sparkle in her warm chocolate eyes hasn’t. Jaimoe loves whatever his sister loves, and when she’s trying to take a break he’ll grab a stuffed toy and push it on her to try to instigate play. (Then he’ll walk away dejected if she refuses. So sweet.) They even look like a matching pair, as Georgia is white with light tan markings and Jaimoe is light tan with white markings. These two are the cutest!
