Welcome Sweet River – English Cocker Spaniel

After the heartbreaking loss of one of his dogs, Rand was determined to find a wonderful new buddy for his dog Bentley.  Sweet River needed a new home as his breeder could no longer keep this wonderful and highly awarded dog.  So to Rand he came for much love and affection!  River had only been with Rand for one day and look how comfortable he already was!    That is River on the left with his beautiful apricot coloring and Bentley, his new best friend and co-trouble maker on the right!

Project 52 – Bloopers!

I am back with this week’s blog  post where I have again joined up with other pet photographers from the Beautiful Beasties Network  to collectively challenge ourselves with a weekly assignment.   This week’s assignment is Bloopers!  Well this was perfect timing for bloopers as I photographed 40 pups and their owners on Sunday in support of NorCal Poodle Rescue and there were a zillion bloopers!   Here are just a few!

NorCal Poodle Rescue Portrait Sessions

What a blast!  On Sunday I photographed 40 assorted poodles, doodles, and other pups all in support of the wonderful non-profit rescue group – NorCal Poodle Rescue. They do such wonderful work and it was my pleasure to give them all a lovely portrait of their furballs with all proceeds going to help save more poodles!

Memories Session – Semi, a most special Burnese Mountain Dog!

Semi is a most special dog.   He is 10 and while blind since he was 5, still enjoys all the wonders of life!  Meeting a new friend, high-fives, sitting in his favorite place in front of the fireplace, off leash walks with Mom and sniffing for anything new in the air!  I was so honored to be able to capture him in so many of his favorite activities and places.    During his off-leash walks he checks in with Mom with a gentle touch of her hand. One of the last photos I took during our time together caught this simple gesture and the love between them really moved me.
