More cuteness overload! Here is my new session with adorable little Flower. If you have always loved Aussies but didn’t have room for one, here is your solution. I’ve never seen one until meeting up with little Dally not long ago. Flower here is her half sister.
I recently was contacted to restore an old photo after my client was told by local print service stores like CVS that they couldn’t help her. She wanted to surprise her dad (the boy in the upper right) with the photo restored for a Christmas gift. I told her, to her delight, that I could do it for her. Here is the before and after.
If you have a treasured photo that needs restoration, I’m available to come to the rescue!
I’m loving taking photos of man’s best friends. I’ve discovered that australian shepherds come in 3 sizes – standard, miniature and toy. They also come in a variety of colors, including eyes. We once were lucky enough to be loved by an australian shepherd mix who was the most obedient, loyal, smart and loving dog ever. This miniature named Reba obviously only had eyes for her owner.
I got a sort of last minute request from Jackie recently. Could I do a maternity session very soon . . . because her due date was imminent. Talk about the nick of time! She had baby Chap the very next morning after our session! I’m so glad I was able to fit them in. And hearty congratulations to the young couple and their brand new baby boy.
My friend Ilana has not one but two adorable little girls who I have had the pleasure of photographing since before they were born. Baby Olivia turned one in August, and if we thought Kaylee, her sister, was a live wire, I think Olivia has her beat! After trying to fit in our session because of uncertain travel plans, and the cake not coming through for the cake smash . . . we got in a few cute shots and then cut our losses . . . lol.
I had to step back from my photography because of serious health issues that impeded my ability to walk. I’ve since had major surgery that was h*ll to go through, but did restore the circulation to my legs. In the meantime, I’ve been on the fence about resuming photography as a business. Stepping back in after a few years is quite daunting – probably because I set such a high standard for myself and I don’t want to deliver less than the best I can do. In the meantime, I do pick up my camera when I have someone close to me that I can gift some photos. I’m happy to display this maternity session with Erin and Austin. They made my job easy – the joy of their young love and the anticipated arrival of their baby boy Carter spilled over, and all they had to do was be themselves with no prompting from me!
In case you haven’t heard, my dogs are the worst subjects ever for taking photos!
With a little help from my husband (aka The Fun Guy), I actually got a few shots – I think they cooperated because they knew they would soon get play time with the fun guy. The best was when Rex put a piece of cheese on Bella’s paw. The result was pretty cute. I’ve been practicing because I plan on trying my hand at pet photography. So here we have Chill, Bella and Jimi:

I’m quietly working on getting back to work after some serious health issues. I’ve been thinking about doing more pet photography. I found a step in the right direction doing a session with Linda and her two adorable little dogs, Pebbles, 12 and Bella, 8. Bella belonged to a homeless person who passed away. Linda rescued her and you can tell she was so very loved and will continue to be in her new forever home.
