Last week, I got the opportunity to work with a designer here in Charlotte, NC for a makeover at a beautiful historical house in the Dilworth neighborhood. While I was there shooting, the clients dog Sam, stole the show. Here’s a sneak from the session – - more of Samantha and the makeover later this week.

There are special people out there with huge hearts. Most of the time you would never know it, but it just seems to pour out of them. Letting a new adopted pet into your home isn’t always easy, but the reward is nothing a lotto winner can ever speak to. Debbie contacted me to photograph her two Chihuahuas, daughter Nicole and Nicole’s dog too. Most people might have in their heads how certain breeds might behave, but all three of these dogs were a photographers dream. It did take them a while to warm up to my camera, but once they did, the big and little personalities just came out. Debbie’s session was taken at Freedom Park in Charlotte, NC.
This is how Debbie hold both Chihuahua’s at the same time – - they don’t mind it and I think they rather enjoy being close to each other.
I just LOVE the sunlight in this picture.
Last but not least, some sweet Penny paws.
It was a perfect day at the park and I’m so glad I got to spend it with Debbie, Nicole and some really awesome pups.
Lately, I can’t get enough of paws. Make that paws and ears and cold noses and well, furry faces. Here’s a sneak from a session this past weekend of Teddy. I love how his little claws/toes just curl up. More from this session later this week.
About a year ago I posted about my friend Bobbi who adopted Chance from Project HALO. She invited me back into her home to see Chance and also hang out with his sister Katie. Here’s a sneak from our session. More pictures coming later this week.
I’m a bad dog mom. I admit it. Things have been crazy this summer with travel and they are just as busy now with fall around the corner that I forget to take care of little things. But as I am catching up and gearing up, this past Labor Day was a perfect time to get those little things done; like getting our dog, Reese, to the groomers. Usually I hate the process of dropping her off some where she hates going and count down the hours until I can pick her up to find silly bows in her hair. You see, Reese is not a prissy Yorkie. Some might even say could have been a lab or a retriever. She loves open water where she can fetch you a stick. She is daring, sassy and loves attention. She is also the first dog I have ever owned in my adulthood and well, she means the world to me. I still can’t believe that she’ll be nine this year. But for now, she’s my little baby butter bean that I love seeing every time I come home.
And here’s a picture of Reese from this weekend all pretty and clean from the groomers.
And here’s the sweet face that always seems to know when 7:30pm hits and the treat jar comes out. Don’t worry – - she reminds me if I forget.

Do you ever meet people and you just click with them? It’s that instant “ah ha” moment when you realize you have lots in common? I met Devon at a volunteer event and thought she was one cool chick. Later on that afternoon, Devon’s boyfriend Billy at the time stopped by. You could see they just clicked. They had a routine about themselves and you could tell it was their own secret language. I got an email at the beginning of 2010 from Devon saying that Billy had proposed and I could not be more excited for the couple. Not only did I adore them together, they also had an amazing dog named Bailey who stole the show anytime the camera was up. Together, they make a really fun family and an even more fun engagement shoot. I can’t wait until this wedding in August where I promised Devon that this horrible heat wave we are having will be gone. Let’s hope I can pull through.
Cynthia got a gift certificate for a photo session as a Christmas present. Fast forward to lots of email exchanges, to finally getting a date on the calendar, and an uptown location. Here’s my favorite picture from her session.
The spring weather we currently have is perfect for a bridal shoot. Lucky for me, I had a beautiful bride to shoot this past Saturday. Since I promised her that I would keep her face off from the blog in case her future hubs was to look before their wedding, I’ll just show you parts from our shoot. Let’s start with her ring.
More bridal details soon – - now go enjoy the weather.
From the pre-shoot survey, I could tell that this was going to be a super fun shoot. And from the moment I walked in the door to the moment I left, two pugs proved me right. Meet Sylvie Grace and Atticus Finch.
From their little paws…
to their funny little faces…
Pugs are always fun to photograph. And don’t get me started on their owners. Look at this super cute little family.
And these pugs love the camera.
This is three year old Sylvie Grace. She’s the first pug that joined the family.
Loves people, really smart and a total princess.
And here’s four year old Atticus Finch. He joined the family from a pug rescue group.
He loves eating, playing with his rope toy and snores like it’s his business.
And the two together equal never a dull moment around this house. They get along like peas and carrots.
They love going on walks together.
They even have a piece of art that matches them. It’s made out of legos by Meagan’s husband Eric. How cool…right?
I had a blast hanging out, getting kisses and laughing at all the snorts.
Have you ever heard a noise that just makes you laugh? This session was filled with snorts and lots of dog kisses.
Here’s a hint to the breed. More to come soon. Oh, and it was double the fun.
