The McGillis family already had a Bernese Mountain Dog named Mia when they decided to add little Carlos to the mix. At the time of the session, Mia was not a fan of her new furry sibling and wanted nothing to do with his puppy antics. As such, we focused our attention on the adorable […]
I was thrilled to photograph these two absolutely STUNNING animals this July. Athena and Thorin are gorgeous Tamaskans, a rare breed of dog that, at its foundation, has a mix of Husky, German Shepherd and Alaskan Malamute. I photographed them at the Mill Pond Park in Saline, Mich.
Ryver is an incredible service dog to his owner, and he will be retiring once his owner’s next service dog is fully trained. Valarie wanted to capture photos of Ryver when he is not working and just having fun in the beautiful fall air. It ended up being a bit colder than we anticipated, but […]
I love taking family photos, especially when the fur kid is included! We took advantage of the gorgeous golden light at the City Park in Howell for these photos. And, of course, I had to be sure to get a handful of photos of just their Golden Retriever, Boomer.
We took 13-year-old Andre, who is a handsome lab/spaniel mix, to Michigan State University for photos around their beautiful campus. Andre is a bit hard of hearing so I switched to a wide-angle lens halfway during the session, allowing me to wave yummy treats right in front of him to get those ears perked up!
Photographing Ginger, the 14-year-old Airedale Terrier, was one of my favorite sessions of 2017. This absolutely sweetheart had lost most of her vision so I really had to work to get her attention and those beautiful ears to pop up in my direction. The bond between Ginger and her owner Jenna was beyond sweet, and […]
A day after location scouting with Kalea, I returned to the beautiful Seven Lakes State Park for a photo session with 7-year-old Oliver, who is a very handsome Golden Retriever, and his fur sisters Lilli and Chloe. I love when we have an opportunity to really let the dog play – in this case with […]
I took Kalea to a gorgeous state park – Seven Lakes State Park – in Holly, Mich., to do some location scouting for a future planned photo session. Little did I know how much the sky would light up that evening to compliment the beautiful surroundings. As you can see, I highly recommend this location […]
I photographed 6-year-old Walter and 13-year-old George, who are both Daisy Dogs (a mix between a Bichon Frise, Poodle and Shih-Tzu), at Michigan State University just two days after the Spartans defeated the University of Michigan in football. Students seemed pretty happy around campus!
Jack and Murphy belong to my neighbor Greg, who lets my dogs out for me when I have to work late. To thank him for his generous gift of time over the last year, I did a brief photo session in our neighborhood! Jack is the white lab, while Murphy is the charcoal lab.
