Phoebe is a such a lovely spaniel - 10 years old and so loved by her family.   She is as sweet inside as she is beautiful outside!  

Why not?  Santa is all spiffed up and ready to help you create the cutest holiday cards ever!  Avoid the rush and schedule early!  I have been working on some super fun design concepts and you can see a sneak peak here!      

When I volunteered to help capture lovely images of foster dogs with the Contra Costa Humane Society, I had a feeling it would be hard to not fall in love with every dog!  Well Tillie proved just how hard this can be.  Her precious little self shyly entered my studio, but within minutes she had warmed up to me and the whole idea of being photographed (and getting lots of love and treats!).   Are you ready to give this lovely lady a forever home?  Check out all the scoop at the Contra Costa Humane Society.      

Meet beautiful Chompski - Mt. Diablo Veterinary Medical Center's July Pet of the Month. Chompski is a 6 year old female australian shepherd mix. She was chosen by the staff because of the very lengthy treatment she had to endure after a horrible rattlesnake bite on one of her legs. During the more than six week treatment period, Chompski was always upbeat and happy. How lucky for me that I was able to enjoy this lovely, happy dog during her fun photo session!  

She is pretty, soft, smart, sweet and such a pleaser. Who could ask for more? Well two days before her photo shoot a skunk was not too interested. But at least she got to have her hair done! This lovely girl is coming into the studio next month -- can't wait!

Takota came from the Nestle/Purina kennels with a bloodline of champions. His name means "friend to everyone" and he certainly lives up to this name as he loves to give kisses and took exactly ZERO time to warm up to me!  He's a real ham in front of a camera.  In 2006, he survived a severe rattlesnake bite and fought for his life and won against the odds. It was my honor to meet this loving and happy gentleman!
