    I'm thrilled to have you visit my blog! I have specialized in Fine Art Pet Photography in the northern Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C. area for the past 10 years.

    Most recently I've moved to Asheville, NC and am doing only limited client work. My recent path has me working on several photography projects, most of course, involve dogs.

    Please check back often for updated project work!

{Dog Park Project} – Starr

In theory I want to love the dog park. What a grand idea – dogs running free, being dogs, having fun. Talking “dog talk.” This dog park is filled with all things wonderful for dogs. Grass! Mud! Puddles! Dirt!

Still I can’t lose that feeling of dread whenever I’m there. Sometimes it comes from behind – that low, guttural growl. The growl that “dog people” know isn’t really “play.” And I tense. Hold my breath. Wait for it to pass, pray it turns in to nothing more.

Most times all is well.

Today was different. Yes, the usual growls and tussles and play pushing the edges of “acceptable behavior.” But there was also Starr.

I noticed her first sitting next to her human. Furtive glances following the action. Her guardian replied when I inquired as to her shyness, “Yeah, she don’t like the dog park. She got attacked here about a year ago.”

It was like a blow to the gut. Wondering how she feels coming back here day after day – and hating it. Wondering why someone would do this to a dog. I watched her today. Always watching. Staying close. Finding safety.

Today wasn’t fun at the dog park. At least not for Starr.

In Memory – Ruby

As I said only a few days ago – I tend to hear when there is a loss of a dog I have photographed. My sympathy goes out today to my friend Ashen on the loss of her best friend Ruby James (aka Jamus). I did a photoshoot of him on the “sly” while Ashen was out of town and a good friend was keeping him for her.

The world has lost another great dog. My heart hurts for your loss Ashen.

On the Road….. Weenie

As you know, I’ve been on the road in Florida this week for my “day job.” My camera tagged along as I grabbed some team photos at our area vet hospitals. As always, my camera can’t help but turn to the animals…

Today please meet Weenie – a 10 year old dachshund who belongs to a staff member at Shelton Veterinary Clinic in Interlachen. He lost use of his rear legs a short time ago but hasn’t missed a bit. Check out their Facebook page and see Weenie in  action under the video section!

Peggy - I wonder what the advantage of having the RNA in 8 segments is. I would speculate that it would increase the chances of mutation and therefore it would have more genetic ditsveiry. Are there are studies that show evidence to the answer of this?

In Memory – Tucker

Somehow it seems, the news always travels back to me. When one of my animal subjects crosses the bridge I always seem to hear the news. And in that moment – whether it be a Facebook post, an email, or text,  I always can go back to the day of our photo shoot. So many memories wash over me. This is as it was when I saw today that beautiful Tucker had passed.

I remember that fall day in 2008. A somewhat wary Tucker chasing madly after his best bud, Henry. So many moments of laughter. So many lovely photos. My sympathy to his family and hopefully your images from that day still bring smiles to you as they do to me.

On The Road…

Many of you know me as my alter ego – VP of Operations for Vetcor.  I stay very busy on the road as we continue to add to our current 164 exceptional veterinary hospital group. My work is extremely rewarding as I get to work with dedicated and hard-working veterinary teams. The travel, though, can be exhausting.  Some weeks add a bit of a twist. This week was one of them.

I traveled to visit my 4 Florida practices and was recruited to grab some team photos. I love getting to know these teams better as we shoot and it’s always fun to really put names with faces.  Though my human subjects were awesome this week, I have to say these two were my favorite – they live  happily on the farm of Dr. Gary Shelton and I was lucky to spend some time photographing him, his wife Nena, and their menagerie.
