Monday Morning Sneak Peek - Fall/Halloween Mini-Session Sept 2016

Friday was so much fun on set! We had beautiful dogs, an amazing assistant and choices of some fun sets! For our monthly DogBreedz Mini-Session, there is a choice of sets for the participants but the sitting fee ($59) includes a single set for their time with me. I had a little wiggle room this month and treated the Scottie dogs to multiple set changes - their moms have been SO patient and supportive, waiting for me to be back on set again for their dogs, I wanted to do SOMETHING to thank them!

This month we offered a variety of set themes: a golden Autumn set, a spooky (yet fun!) Halloween set and of course, classic un-themed set choices. You can view all the photos for the day on my photo gallery site by CLICKING here (check back later in the week ... there is an adorable - and talented - Chihuahua you DON'T want to miss that will be posted as soon as his mom returns my model release).

Which set is YOUR favorite? (pay no attention to that annoying signature stamp - final images to my clients don't have that, but I have to protect my photos that I put out on the 'net!)

Picking up where I left off ...

It's been way too long since I've been doing regular shoots! Just when it looked like my Spa schedule was lightening and allowing me back to the studio and traveling to shows in Jan 2015, Fate stepped in and plans changed. One of my favorite people, the owner of my Spa, spent most of 2015 in and out of the hospital, at some points fighting for her life. I promised her that no matter what, she would have a viable business to return to when she moved past this struggle. 12-14 hour days keeping her business on track didn't leave me any time for playing with the pups in front of the camera!

I am beyond thrilled to say that she is back with us at work and getting stronger every day. And I am finally able to open the studio to regular shoots and regularly scheduled mini-shoots. Look to the right on this blog for upcoming times and let's meet on the set!
