Teeny tiny Blondie

Blondie is the smallest dog I have ever photographed.  She is a darling little thing that completely adores her owner.


Adele and Nelli

This is Adele, from the 2015 calendar.  Isn’t she beautiful?!  Her tail was incredible – it glistened in the sunlight as if it was made of glitter.


I was pleased with how these photos show the connection between Adele and Nelli.  It was a fun portrait session!



2015 Pet Photography Calendar

The calendar is going to the printers!  I might be biased but I think it will be another good one.

More Minion Puppies

I think we are overdue for some puppy photos.

As I said in my last Minion Puppies post, I took far too many photographs of Lily and Miss Kay, two Chesapeake Bay retriever puppies that were dressed up to match some marvellous Minion costumes for Halloween.  Aren’t they cute?!



Harry was January’s calendar boy

…and since I have written about Indie already I was feeling badly about not having said anything about Harry.


Handsome dog portrait photograph


Isn’t he handsome?   I love how his brown eyes glow in his grey & white face.  The colour just reaches out and grabs you.

My copy of the 2014 pet photography calendar hangs on the fridge, and every time I walk into the kitchen I see it.  It makes me especially happy this week because we have turned the page over to February, and February’s photo is of Indie.

Minion puppies


Lily and Miss Kay were dressed up as Minion Puppies for Halloween (to go with some of the best Minion costumes out there).  We took them to an unused ball field and let them run around free for a while on a gorgeous sunny fall afternoon.

All puppies are cute, of course, so I took far too many photos of them for one blog post.  You can expect to see these cutie pies again!  They were bred by my friend Terry Dancey of Tsunami Chesapeake Bay retrievers – just like my girl Rivet.   They are both lovely girls but I have to say that I would have slipped Lily into my pocket and smuggled her home with me if I thought I could get away with it.
