Six year old Jett is a gorgeous, “jet” black Standard Poodle. We had a location session at his family’s equally gorgeous back yard. He enjoys (like, REALLY enjoys) playing catch with his frisbee, and biting water from the hose. Such a great family and a really fun shoot…. thanks guys!

Little 6-month old Bear is a Havanese, and does look a bit like a miniature bear. He’s fluffy and bouncy and full of life, and was so fun to shoot  :)

Wallace’s Joy Session was a great example of how I really try to fit these in as soon as they’re needed. His mom called me in the morning, and we had to drive to South Dakota that day. They weren’t sure if he’d still be around by Monday and I couldn’t let myself leave without doing this for them. I was over to their house within the hour and we got some wonderful images of their handsome boy. Fun fact: Wallace’s mom is Rupert’s (human) aunt!
