It’s puppy time!

It’s only once in a blue moon that one of my very best friends in the world has a baby, and no matter what, I have to be there to document that baby’s first days.  I just have to.  So when one of my oldest and dearest college friends adopted this two month old Wheaten Terrier yesterday, I had to be there within moments of her arrival home.  Because puppies are babies too!  And now little Piper is totally jumping the line – ahead of two patient families waiting for their pictures from me.  I hope you guys understand – this one just had to be blogged quickly… isn’t she adorable?

We love you Piper, oh yes we do, we love you Piper, and we’ll be true… when you’re not with us, we’re blue… Oh Piper, we love you. xoxo

Great pics of an adorable puppy. Of course, I’m a little or a lot prejudiced, I’m her aunt!

2 pounds of fluff and attitude

Today I got to meet the teeniest, tiniest little cutie patootie Maltipoo puppy.  She’s only twelve weeks old and at her last appointment she weighed in at a whopping one and a half pounds.  She’s been eating and growing like crazy, though, so her mama is sure she’s at least two pounds by now.  She’s the kind of little pup who makes you immediately drop to the ground the moment you see her and not get off the ground until you have to leave.

Here’s my favorite moment from the shoot, as she heads to attack that enormous tennis ball that just might attack back.  Never know.

Introducing the lovely Digby.  Yes, that is a standard-size tennis ball at 1/3 of her standing height.

Never thought I’d post a photo of my own foot on my blog.  Luckily I wore my cute shoes today. I’m a size 8.5, if that helps you establish a frame of reference for this little pipsqueak.

Next to her playpen.

Hiding in a favorite spot.  Yes, that’s Dig’s little nose peeking out.

Can we go outside and play?

Enjoying the sun today (look at that cutie little tail!).  And the face full of attitude.

Getting a scratch from mama.

Her profile makes her look like a big five pound girl, doesn’t she?

Quick rest, sweet wise eyes.

And last but not least, lounging by the pool.

THANK YOU so much for these pics. It’s absolutely amazing what you were able to capture, especially since Digby was running around the entire time. I can’t wait to frame her first official photos!

Awwwwww! Presh!

Lens slobber never hurt anyone

I’ve been called many, many times over the past eight years to do dog photos, and I’ve always just referred my clients to other wonderful photographers who specialize in animal photography.  But when all of a sudden this month my sister and her fiance adopted a gorgeous 4 month old shelter pup (a lab/husky mix), all my resolve went out the window.  Because dogs are babies too!  Now that I’m a real live aunt of a real live dog, everything has changed.  He’s perfect.  He’s delicious. He’s cuddly.  He’s beautiful.  He’s my nephew.

And his name, ladies and gentlemen, is Jake.

And in my less than 12 hour visit to DC this weekend to meet him, I learned so much.  He taught me how awesome the laser pointer is.  His mom and dad live in an english basement apartment, and they don’t have a ton of runaround room for a 4 month old cutie pie, so the laser pointer is maybe the best invention for Jake ever.  Here he is as he pounces on that silly little red dot (and a side note as a proud aunt – do you see the bright white light on his left paw? he totally would have caught the red dot if it were a real thing!):

A snuggle with his loving mama:

Up on his hind legs (this was before we went to doggie kindergarden later that day… not sure if this is allowed anymore…):

I think he has his daddy’s nose:

And a shot with his favorite toy in the background – the oft-chewed Froggy.  And don’t you love these incredible wrinkles on Jake’s head? What’s more perfect? They remind me of how much I love baby wrinkles.

Playing a little tug-o-war:

I like this one because you can see his sweet little husky tail all curled around:

And had to play with some macro stuff… don’t you love how puppy-ish these paw pads are? Still so soft.

The whole fam.  How awesome is the head tilt on Jake? And Lindsay’s hand over Jake’s little paw is my second favorite part…

Gorgeous, perfect, wonderful nephew, I loved meeting you.  Can’t wait to see you again soon.  So excited to be a doggie aunt.

SO cute! Will he be at the wedding? :)

I hope so, Nancy – but I’m gonna leave that to Linds and Brent to answer… I haven’t heard the final word. I think his house training is job #1 these days, and the success on that front is going to determine wedding attendance likelihood ;)

These pictures are stunning! I haven’t met Jake, but I feel like I know him now. Beautifully done!

These shots are incredible! I just spent an hour with Jake this week and I can’t get over how much these shots capture his personality. Love them!

OMG these brought tears to my eyes. Jake is wonderful, he totally has a photo-future, and I’m thrilled for him and his happy parents! Happy life to all!
