happy #nationaldogday!

To me, every day is #nationaldogday! As a mom of two fur babies, and lover of dogs of any kind – you arent going to find me upset if you bring a dog to your shoot!  Makes my job that more fun! In honor of this “national” day, I put together this collection of some of my favorite dog appearances.

zoe, zack and sophia.

This weekend I met Jenny and Jim with their baby zoe (seen here at 1 month old!), along with their cousins zack and sophia, at promontory point for photos. It was a gorgeous day, and zoe loved the camera! And lets not forget big sister Azzie and cousin Winky! What’s better than a newf at a photo shoot?! TWO!

holiday special photos: addison and jackson

This weekend I tried something new. I offered 30 minute sessions for a discounted rate and I ended up with five shoots. It was a ton of fun! This time around I did it in the west loop, since its my favorite place to shoot ( its like a constant urban photowalk adventure – i could shoot there ALL day!)…The weather was pretty chilly, but everyone cooperated and put up with it! Thanks again to everyone who came out and made this happen. I’ll be posting the photos here shortly.

First up: Jackson and Addison. Started off a little on the rough side. The kiddos were cold, and it takes a little bit of time to get used to the big scary camera!  But, with a little bit of team work, we got them to run around and be crazy kids and with no time, their little personalities were shining through….
