About the love of an old dog

A few weeks ago, a beautiful human being emailed me to book a photo-shoot for herself and her dog. Her old, blind, cancer-ridden rescued dog. A dog that someone abandoned in his old age and that she rescued, to give him the most love possible in his last years of life. A gentle, quiet Boston […]

Weimaraner Braque photo shoot

A few weeks ago, I was hired to do a Father’s Day surprise photo session. The “baby” was a 3 year old Weimaraner Pointer who “matched the furniture”, to the delight of his human mom, hence the photo session was booked at his home. Let me tell you; this dog did not like the camera, […]

Siberian Husky photoshoot

A few weeks ago I photographed  a wonderful blended family. Two of the kids had fluffy tails and perky ears. Get where I’m going with this? 😛 The “kids” were two 11 year old Siberian huskies. They are brothers and one of them is, sadly, dying of cancer. The dogs are loved and look great, […]

A family photoshoot

Now I know that when someone mention “family photography” your first thought is taking you to the parents with their kids. Human kids, that is.. Well, as it turns out in my line of work, the ‘kids” are usually of the furry, four-pawed variety. Case in point, a recent photo session comprised of mom, dad […]

Print the photos you love

I’ve always wondered how people see the value of getting 100 photos on a stick from the photographer, only to misplace the stick (and lose all their photos) or damage the stick -(and lose all their photos)- have you seen an USB stick? not the sturdiest things around…besides, are you ready to rummage through the […]

Old dogs

Initially I wanted to call this post: Old souls and the limitations of our perception. But that sounded too pretentious. This is Angeloup. She is 13 year old and has survived a heart attack. She is also deaf. Which means she longer hides under the table when the rain thunders or the fireworks sound up. […]

Afghan hound dog

I recently did a photoshoot with an absolutely gorgeous dog: an Afghan Hound. Elegant, mysterious and a very talkative clown at the same time, it was a special session. As I was clicking away I continued to be stunned by how beautiful this dog was. The camera loved him and seemed content to be admired. […]

Why photograph your pets professionally?

This post is going to be a little odd perhaps, a little off-kilter. “Why would I photograph my pets” someone asked me recently. I guess the underlying question would be “why hire a professional to photograph my dog/cat/ferret..etc..? ” The blunt answer is: because they will (probably) die before you and all you will have […]
