Bonnie & Barbara

Barbara Martin, the Animal Communicator that met with Bodhi and me, stopped into the studio this week with her furry friend Bonnie for a photography session!... Bonnie is an 11 year old yellow lab that still has a spunk in her step! What a pleasure it was to photograph their special connection!

Wags, Willow and Snickers

I've known Dianne for years as our paths cross on the "pet event circuit"; Dianne at the Northern California Weimaraner Rescue booth and me at my pet photography booth. Eventually I became more involved with the FABULOUS Weim Country Gala by donating photography sessions to their fundraiser auction and having my mobile studio at the event. We've long talked about setting up a photography session at Crissy Fields of her four canine companions. Sadly, her GSP passed away in the blink of an eye. Dianne and I have had many emails of support go back and forth in the last few months as our beloveds symptoms started on the same day - her Cookie passing after a few short days and my Bodhi passing after 4 weeks. We decided that we should waste no more time! Today I had the pleasure of photographing her two Weims, Willow and Wags, and Snickers, a Rhodesian mix - all rescues! What fun we had!

Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary!.... It's hard to believe that little Biella has been with us for a whole year now!... But it's even harder to believe what an important roll she's played in our lives the past few months. Her enthusiasm, love and spirit far surpass her 5lb body. She brought us comfort through our loss of Bodhi and reminded us that there is joy even in sorrowful times. How lucky we are!

Dog Days of Summer at the Westin St. Francis

Our photo booth at the Westin St. Francis Dog Days of Summer event was a hot ticket! Wow! We appreciate everyone that stopped in to have their photo taken! We had a blast and are proud to have helped raised money for the San Francisco SPCA!....

Who can resist Chanel!?...

Recently, at the Dogtopia grand opening, I met the nice people of Four Paws Rescue and one of their adoptable dogs. Chanel is an absolutely adorable little Chihuahua and Italian Greyhound mix. It's hard to believe this 5lb little girl was found wandering the streets of Oakland all by herself! FP saved her from an Oakland animal shelter after she failed her temperament test (a little distrustful of humans she snapped at someone, causing her to fail). That's when FP stepped in. She's spent the last five months in a foster home and is now "home ready". She will make a fantastic furry friend. I have to admit I was quite taken by her!
