Puppies and Kittens – Oh My!

Who doesn’t love looking at puppies and kittens?  Below are a few images from recent sessions – I absolutely love photographing the young furballs.  Even better, I love being able to see them grow up and capture the various stages they go through.  We’ve created a new program called “Four Seasons” where you’ll get four sessions throughout the year that will highlight the changes in your pet – as well as the changes in the seasons.  We live in a great area for showing the various seasons!  This isn’t only limited to puppies and kittens.  Call us at 703-354-3736 for more information.   Anyway – enough words – here are some pictures . . .

Fall Season and Upcoming Events

Fall is almost here and it’s a great time of year!  The leaves in northern Virginia are scheduled to peak between October 27th and November 4th – it’s a beautiful natural backdrop for outdoor portraits.

Here is a sample from last year and also this year’s ad in the Washingtonian for September.

Remembering with Sadness and Respect

This German Shepherd Dog named Roxy belonged to 1Lt Joshua L. Booth, U.S.M.C.  Before he left to serve, Josh and his wife visited this wall at the Korean War Memorial in Washington, DC, and she took a picture of her husband here.  On October 17, 2006, Josh was killed in Iraq.  After Joshua’s passing, the family brought Roxy home to the mainland where she continues to be a beloved family member.  She is living with Josh’s uncle, Black Booth, who contacted me and asked if I could take a portrait of Roxy at the same wall that Josh was before he left for Iraq.  That was the inspiration for this image.

Here is a slideshow with images from our session and additional images provided by Josh’s family that were taken in Hawaii where he was stationed.  He adopted Roxy from a local shelter:

K9 Roxy is now a Search and Rescue (SAR) canine and part of a K9 SAR team in Virginia. She serves as a living affirmation of Josh’s life, and like Josh, she lives and works to serve others.

Summer’s Over – What a Way to End It!

So, a few posts back I mentioned the Doggie Swim that would be happening in Alexandria, VA, at the Chinquapin Park Recreation Center.  It was definitely the place to be if you’re a lab or golden retriever – but there were lots of other breeds and mixes as well.  What an incredibly fun event to watch!
