To everyone who participated in Small Business Saturday on November 28th – Thank you! Thank you also to everyone who participated in the fund raiser for Charlie’s Angels Animal Rescue at Patton Avenue Pet Company! We had so much fun and saw lots of super cute dogs in all shapes and sizes. We even photographed a beautiful snake in a scarf and Santa hat! (I’m not kidding.) The online gallery is now available for viewing (YAY!). To see your online proofs, please click here: Santa Photos (Benefit for Charlie’s Angels Animal Rescue)

If you have any issues with ordering, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 828-380-9774 or email and we will be very happy to help. By the way – we’d like to send out huge hugs to Jenna at Patton Avenue Pet Company for graciously hosting photos and my amazing assistant, Kristen Stover of My Mobile Admin. Please check out and “like” their pages to support more local small business awesomeness in Asheville, NC.

If you missed out on photos, it’s not too late to get in on the fun. We’ll be doing it again next Saturday, December 5th from noon to 4:00pm at Patton Avenue Pet Company. We’ll see you there!



This past summer, I worked on a new art series that explored the world of dog expression and how we relate to those images. From time to time, you’ll be introduced to the dogs from that series and I think you’ll find them as fascinating as I did.

This is Miss Olivia and I probably don’t have to tell you that she’s one smart doggie – you can see it in her eyes.




This is Miss Bianca. She’s an extremely entertaining pug and one of my first loves. Some of you might not know this, but she was the first dog that made me want to be an animal photographer. I recently had her back in the studio and her antics were no less entertaining. She always knows how to make me smile. As a matter of fact, we had so much fun on shoot day that I got a little carried away and walked back to my computer with WAY more shots than I needed. I’ll show you what I mean…



Since we were tired of playing with the ball, I decided to try some hats…


As you can imagine, it was so funny – I had tears in my eyes!


Last but not least, we tried to get some wonderful “serious” portraits and even that was funny.

Thank you for a WONDERFUL shoot, Miss B!



Recently I had the absolute pleasure to meet one of the most regal Golden Retrievers! His name is Wally and let me tell you that he’s a handsome boy. Since he’s older now, his age has not been kind to his hips but he seemed to take all the attention in stride.

One special thing I learned very quickly about Wally is that he’s never very far from his tennis ball, so I made sure to incorporate his favorite ball in the session.879A3176-Edit



Recently, I invited my friend Lauren to bring her super laid back Beagle to my studio to play with some new lighting techniques. She told me that he would be approachable, easy to work with and had loads of personality. I was stoked! Beagles are a personal favorite of mine because they are so sweet and just want some love….and some peanut butter.

Bubba was no exception. We had so much fun in the studio and I was thrilled that he shared some of his expressions with me. In return, I paid him in peanut butter.
