Happy 2018!

My first session of the year was with one-year-old Dylan, a handsome and playful Airedale Terrier. His dads have their hands full with this charming guy – he knows how cute he is and uses it to his advantage. He was totally unfazed by the camera and as soon as he realized all the attention he got when it was focused on him, he started striking poses left and right!


Wally was a Hurricane Irma refugee, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise because by coming to Atlanta, he found the perfect home. He is a shy little guy (maybe a chihuahua/pomeranian mix? I also saw shiba inu in that smile) who likes to nap under the couch like a cat and only has eyes for his mom. As much as we all love outgoing dogs, there’s something to be said for those timid ones who only blossom for their person. I feel so privileged to be able to witness and capture the special bond between them.


Diesel’s mom was worried we wouldn’t have much to shoot for his session because he doesn’t have any tricks and doesn’t like to play games or chase toys…but she needn’t have worried! He was such a ham for the camera that every time I put my camera back in the bag because I thought we were finished, he would have a new expression for us. Those ears! That smirk!

He is a 14-year-old miniature pinscher/miniature schnauzer mix (we actually know that for sure, a rarity in rescue) who was adopted from Atlanta Pet Rescue (now Best Friends Atlanta), the same rescue as two of my own pups. He is a spunky, independent guy who loves his mama, marking every tree in the park, and snoozing on the couch – in that order. 🙂
