Skyler – Studio Session

I have a soft spot for the grey-faced beauties. (So why can’t I get over the fact that I’ve found grey hairs on my own head?) Anyway, I’ve found that the grey-haired pups have such soul and a really special connection with their people.

That connection has been made even stronger in Skyler’s case. She was diagnosed with cancer and her mom, a wonderful vet at Independence Veterinary Clinic, obviously has given her the best care in the world. The love between these two is amazing and Skyler has the smile to prove it…

Skyler still loves a good belly rub. :)

Skyler is a little talkative (especially if she wants a treat). I thought this image captured that funny side of her… :)

Best of luck to Skyler. I hope things continue to look positive!!!

Shyla + Laynie – Studio Session

We are in the middle of a nasty snow storm here in Charlotte. Reasons like this, and honestly because I hate the cold, is why I love having the option for studio sessions. These are perfect for these cold, winter months that aren’t so pretty as well as the dog days of summer when it’s unbearable to be outside (doesn’t that seem so far away?). We can curl up in the studio, relax and not worry about the rain, snow or temperatures out the front door. Sweet!

Shyla and Laynie spent an evening in the studio with me and I just fell in love with these shorties. They had sweet little personalities and, I swear, they smiled for their group shot…

We also had some fun playing with the tennis ball…

Linus – Studio Session

Linus is a little superstar in this neck of the woods. He’s a therapy dog, master of all tricks, and one handsome show-off. Oh, and he does his fair share of modeling for me. ;)

So here are some of the fancy moves Linus worked for me in the studio…

“Super cute, ready to play”…

Thanks so much, Linus, for showing off your stuff again!!!! :)

Rookie + Lola – Studio Session

Rookie and Lola have been in front of my camera before so I was beyond thrilled when they signed up for a studio session with me. These two are FULL of personality and have the squishiest and most kissable faces. I wanna squeeze their checks like a grandma would!!!

Rookie is a little ball motivated. Too bad he’s not coordinated enough to catch them. ;)

This is the face Lola made when Rookie actually caught one!
