Lost Mountain Labradors | Atlanta Dog Portrait Photographer

I recently had the pleasure of meeting the wonderful labs over at Lost Mountain Labradors! These labradors greeted me with lots of excitement, and I had a great afternoon capturing some new portraits and also getting in a little play time.  There are seven labs over at Lost Mountain Labradors, and they each have fun and unique personalities.  I loved getting to know them all individually, and at the end of the session we had some time to just have fun, and it was a pleasure to get to see them all play so well together…one happy family!

I was first introduced to Brandy, the 9 year old matriarch of the pack.  She is a beautiful yellow labrador with the absolute kindest heart.  She loved to be close and was very gentle!


They still have one of Brandy’s puppies, and his name is Buck, a 6 year old yellow lab. Buck still looks like a puppy to me! He has the sweetest, scrunchy face, the kind you can just snuggle all day! Buck is a big boy, and he is very smart!

Lost_Mountain_Labradors08Lost_Mountain_Labradors09Lost_Mountain_Labradors10I do not know about you, but I would have a really hard time saying bye to such adorable lab puppies!  I know it is not easy over at Lost Mountain Labradors either.  As you will see they have some really cute young labs in the pack these days…

Meet Abby!  She is a fun and very smart yellow lab who loves to play fetch.  You will see in some additional images at the end her fetching skills! I am pretty sure some of you may have a lab or two like her…

Lost_Mountain_Labradors18Lost_Mountain_Labradors19Lost_Mountain_Labradors20Last but not least is Murphy!  Another one of the youngest Lost Mountain Labradors, and one that stole my heart at the very end.  Murphy is handsome and and has a great personality!  From what I could tell in a short amount of time, quite the love-bug!

2 Million Dogs | PuppyUp! Walk Atlanta

Yesterday was the PuppyUp! Walk in Atlanta!  I was excited to be a part of this event happening all over the country. PuppyUp! is raising money to support those with cancer, honoring both human and dog friends that they have lost, and walk for those we can help. The 2 Million Dogs Foundation is committed to discovering the common links between canine and human cancers and the causes of these cancers through comparative oncology research. You can still help us raise money for our goal!  We are accepting donations through the end of the year!

David, Mason, Magnolia, and I headed out early to help set up before the walk.  There were vendors, music, and lots of great company!  It was fun to celebrate the life of our canine cancer survivor participants.  I hope these images captured a taste of the celebration.


I am already SO excited for the event next year!  Mark your calendars and keep an eye on Facebook for specifics on the event!

Atlanta Dog Portrait Photographer | Daisy

Daisy is a beautiful senior sheltie terrier mix that I met in Smyrna, GA last week.  We took some pet portraits for her mom’s birthday in their favorite park.  Daisy is wise, loyal, and humble – characteristic of many older dogs.  She was a little shy of the camera at first, but I won her over with tasty treats and a low key portrait session. 🙂  I LOVED to see her get excited for a game of chase!  Thank you Daisy and Julie for a very fun morning!

Atlanta Family and Pet Portraits | Routledge Family

Just as the sun was rising last weekend I got to meet up with the Routledge family in Piedmont Park for some family portraits.  It was a dewy morning, but we had fun letting their son interact with their dogs and capturing some fun family portraits!  Special thanks to the Routledge family for meeting me so early! I think we got some great shots!
