Sunrise at the Washington Monument

I recently had a sunrise session at the Washington Monument with a wonderful German Shepherd named Rocky.  Rocky was adopted at age 4 from a neglectful household. He was rescued by a neighbor who ultimately found a perfect home for him. Rocky has been with his new family since 2001 and loves his huge back yard, daily walks, and all his canine friends!

This is what it looks like at sunrise in Washington, DC.  Very peaceful.

The Power of Two

Well, Spring has sprung.  Not only are people out enjoying the weather, so are dogs.  I’ve had the opportunity to photograph lots of dogs outside lately, and not just individual dogs, but dogs in pairs.  One is great – but you can see how much fun two have together.

Meet Bo and Puck.  They are 5 and 4 months old, respectively, and they love to play the chase game.  These Bichon puppies are very resourceful as well.  Even though they have lots of toys to choose from, they prefer a pinecone they found outside.

Then, there was Hogan and Halle – two gorgeous English black labs.  Of course, they love the water, so here are a few images of them enjoying themselves together.

And finally, I photographed Bo and Holly, two 7 month old Shih Tzu’s who also love to play together.  They have an older Shih Tzu brother named Kirby who holds the fort down while they are frolicking in the grass.  They’ve never met a leaf they didn’t like!

And they love to run together!
