I really loved this photo session with Amy the Maine Coon. It was a fabulous opportunity to experiment a bit with light and angles. Most cats don’t sit still long enough to spend much time trying new things, but sweet Amy was content just sitting on a bench in the sun. Her dad had her since she could fit in the palm of his hand, and 18 years later their time together came to a close.
Johnny Cash and Ginger got in on some photos too!

Polly is an 11 year old “Chiweenie” (Chihuahua / Mini Dachshund mix) and her much bigger sister, Sophie, is a 5 year old mystery mutt. I first met these lovely ladies at a Sushi With Your Poochie event, and her mom does a lot of work with the English Springer Rescue of America – Upper Midwest Chapter. Polly doesn’t see or hear like she used to, but she was a great little model. Sophie didn’t do so bad herself, and I especially like their personalized collars!

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!

Miss Elsa was a superb model in the photo studio, with her shiny coat, favorite toys and winning smile. Her mom works at Dog Day Getaway, a fabulous Doggie Daycare and Boarding facility in Apple Valley. DDG provides “a homelike environment with a higher quality of care for your best friend.”
