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!

Atlanta Dog Photographer | Fun Day on the River

It was just a few weeks ago that I shared the first part of my photo session with these six amazing labs from Cumming, GA!  Now, we are back with some Chattahoochee River fun.  We met in Atlanta down on the river, and on a weekday morning this was the perfect time for some off-leash play!  If I were being honest, I would also say that this was one of my favorite morning portrait sessions.  This dog photography session blew my mind, I left feeling so blessed to get to do what I love each day!

I hope that you enjoy some of my favorite shots of these guys running, playing, and doing what labs love…swimming!

Can you believe that two of these guys are up for adoption?!?  They sure are!  Both Emme and Candy, shown just above in the center of the car, are still looking for their forever homes!  If you are interested you can email Atlanta Lab Rescue at info@atlantalabrescue.com for more details…make sure to ask about them by name, and if you are looking to add 2 to your pack it would extra special if these two ended up in the same home! 🙂

It is my goal to showcase your dogs personality in images that are candid, fun, and worthy of display around your home.  If you are interested in a pet or family portrait please email me today via the CONTACT button above.  Thanks y’all!
