Molly is a two-year-old Shih Tzu and a total spitfire! She loves to play and when she walks it looks like she’s literally bouncing from room to room. She’s talkative and social – and always on the move. Her mom thought we’d have a tough time photographing her, but it turns out that she loves the camera! You just have to be willing to move as fast as she does. 😉


Sweet Rocco is twelve and the gentlest of giants. He was rescued as a fluffy pup and still resembles a big teddy bear – and is just as cuddly, too! He is so laid-back and affectionate that everyone who meets him falls instantly in love.

Unfortunately, the catalyst for our shoot was a bone cancer diagnosis, but I’m happy to report that after our shoot, he made it through surgery to remove the cancer with flying colors. Please send lots of good thoughts to Rocco and his gorgeous mama for a speedy recovery! They have such an amazing bond and I am so honored I was able to photograph them together. Here’s to many more good years –

Blue & Spot

Blue and Spot are a pair of senior pups who are as sweet and loyal as can be! They follow their people everywhere, especially the daughter of the family. Blue, the chocolate lab, is always content to be near, but Spot (the white boy with…you guessed it, spots!) likes to be ON his person. 🙂

Blue originally joined her family as a puppy when she was released from her service dog training, while Spot wandered up as a scraggly, skinny stray and hit the jackpot. Don’t you love these faces?
