Skylar at 8 weeks old!

What better way to start a Monday than with a brand-new, unbelievably adorable, 8-week-old Portuguese Water dog puppy?! Skylar was just brought home by his mom a week before our session, but he’s already bonded with her and they are doing fabulously. He already knows the command “sit,” comes when she calls, and even stands perfectly still when he needs to be combed! Even at his young age you can tell he’s going to be a very handsome dog with a wonderful temperament. I can’t wait to document his first year with his three Puppy Package sessions…

He spent the afternoon frolicking in the yard, cooling down on the hardwoods, then flopping over comically in his one of his many customized beds. All in all, an absolute dog photographer’s dream!





It’s not abnormal to see Skylar sprawled half-on, half-off his bed…he loved performing for the camera!

Mutt Madd-ness Birthday Celebration!

Mutt Madd-ness held their second annual birthday party this weekend at K9 Planet in Roswell and I was honored to be invited! Adopted littermates came back to see their all-grown-up brothers and sisters – and even their mama! It was wonderful to see all the different pups who had found their forever homes through Mutt Madd-ness, and to see how well they’re doing in their new families. Fun was had by all. ๐Ÿ™‚

Nikki has actually been available for adoption for over a year despite being gorgeous, calm and amazingly sweet –ย  please email me directly if you’re interested and I’ll give you her contact information; she has her own personal crusader fighting to find her a home. (Carol, you’re great!)

Joni Solis - Thank you Leesia for your huge heart for helping dogs! I LOVE photos of rescued dogs. Thanks for sharing these.

Mutt Madd-ness - Leesia again thank you for taking time out of your hectic schedule to fit in a photo session for Mutt Madd-ness! As always, wonderful job! Some of these pictures are so moving, especially when you know where many of these dogs began their lives and what great ones they have now. HUGE thank you!


Grady is a sweet 7-year-old Maltese who is an Atlanta Pet Rescue & Adoption alum. She’s a very quiet, loyal girl who’s always by her mom’s side and has been wonderful with her new baby sister. Her favorite treat is anything sweet potato: she loves them in any form – fresh, dried, mashed…

She even has her own bedroom where she listens to NPR while her family is at work during the day, and at night she snuggles with them on the bed. Oh, to be a dog!

She always spins when the sweet potatoes come out! Fun fact: she always turns to the left!

joan - We have a little one just like yours, her name is Molly Ann and she was rescue dog also, we are hoping she will calm down as she is quite hyper, I call her monkey dog, she climbs everywhere and she is very funny…I love her.

Sheila - I am soooo in love with these photos! She is adorable and you really captured her personality. My favorites are as she is doing a mini-play bow on the deck, spinning, and when she has her treat in her mouth. Adorable!!

Brandi - How adorable!!!

Stephanie - Awe! I love her ears when she is chomping on the treat! These are all amazing shots!
