Rambo 7 Year Anniversary

Seven years ago, I contacted a rescue group about this goofy little dog. He was scruffy and dirty and had been given a really horrible start to his life. He was sweet and timid and never, ever barked. All these years later, he is still the sweetest, but is also incredibly confident and has definitely found his "voice". I didn't know at the time, but the day I brought him home was also the same day that I started picking up my camera. There is a saying that - if you want to see what a photographer cares about, look at what they point their camera at.

I guess I know who I care about. 

Here's to many more years, Bone. <3

Frank & Musta Jr.

I am so happy that I got to meet and photograph Frank, who is the newest addition to his family. They are now all evened out with two dogs, two cats, and two horses (oh and two humans to take care of them all!). Frank was happy to share the spotlight with his brother, Musta. They wore each other out by running all over the yard and then settled in for some portraits.

Tate

I had the opportunity to hang out with Tate and her Dad on a beautiful fall afternoon recently. Tate loved all of the attention (and treats), and I loved being able to capture her goofy personality with Lake Michigan as our backdrop. 

Location: Lakeview, Chicago IL

Charlie

Charlie has one of the greatest lives a dog could ever dream of. He gets to spend his days out on the farm; making sure the horses stay in line, all the stalls get cleaned, and all the treats get eaten. And at night he gets to kick back with his mom who spoils him endlessly because come on, what else can you do with a dog like Charlie but spoil him?!

Location: Temperance, Michigan

Hester

Hester and I spent a gorgeous morning walking around Museum Campus. There were so many unique hidden spots to check out, and this beautiful gal was happy explore them all (and look stunning in the process, of course). We obviously needed a photo in front of Soldier Field, where she was patient enough for me to snap a photo of her wearing her namesake's jersey!

Newfoundland Pool Party

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be surrounded by enormous and gorgeous dogs that resemble small bears? Ok now how about that scenario, but it's also a POOL PARTY?! It was my distinct pleasure to be able to hang out with these beautiful dogs at their picturesque summer meetup, aptly called "Newfapalooza".

Brewster

This handsome frenchie-man is Brewster! Yes his tongue is out like that all of the time, I think it only adds to his charm though.

Bella

I had such a fun time with my new friend Bella! She is such a fluffy loveball, and she happens to be gorgeous as well. Check her out doing her best 'Jaws' impression with her favorite toy shark, she is too funny!

Musta Jr.

Musta Jr. lives in Toledo, OH with his 2 humans and 2 very patient cat siblings. He has more energy than he knows what to do with, but with a face like that, he can get away with anything!

Bobbi

Bobbi, having some fun out at Bunker Hill Forest Preserve. As with many beautiful ladies, she was accompanied by her entourage (Jeff & Prince).
