Roswell Ga Family Portrait Photographer | Spick Family

Special thanks to Roswell SNOBS on Facebook for leading me to the Spick Family!  We had an amazing morning down on the Chattahoochee River for our family photography portrait session.  Mornings like this make me want to get up and outside during these beautiful fall days!  I was extra excited when I saw that they brought along their chocolate lab, added bonus!

Alpharetta Dog Photography | Loving Hands Animal Clinic | Charlie

A few weeks ago I was a part of a very sneaky, but very fun, secret photo session for Dr. Roesner of Loving Hands Animal Clinic!  Dr. Roesner and her staff at Loving Hands Animal Clinic in Alpharetta, GA are amazing and take great care of our Atlanta Lab Rescue dogs.  It was fun to treat her dog Charlie to his own dog photography session!  While Dr. Roesner was tucked away in surgery we headed out to grab some portraits of Charlie…as you will see, this HANDSOME golden retriever did such a great job!  His personality is adorable, and he was easy to photograph.

I love a furry golden retriever in motion!  Charlie was having the time of is life playing with us and romping around in the yard.  This photo really captures his free spirit!

A special part of the session was getting some photos of Charlie with Kenzo.  Kenzo is an Atlanta Lab Rescue who was treated by Dr. Roesner.  He has had a couple hip surgeries, and we are SO thankful to Dr. Roesner for getting him back to tip-top shape!  You can see more of Kenzo in another recent post tracking through the fields of Cumming, GA!  It was fun to see these two together!

The staff at Loving Hands stepped out to join us for a few photos, thank you to them as well for always helping us!

Thank you CHARLIE!  And, thank you Dr. Roesner!  I hope that you enjoy your coffee table book with all the highlights of our time with Charlie for MANY years!

I am always up for a fun surprise photo session, they make great gifts of gratitude for your caregivers or for the holidays!  Email me today!

Atlanta Dog Photographer | Dazzle, Max, Riley, Kenzo, Momma, and Candy!

The best part of this amazing outdoor photography session was getting to do EXACTLY what these dogs love!  I spent the morning with an amazing group of labradors: Dazzle, Max, Riley, Kenzo, Momma, and Candy in Cumming, Georgia hiking and romping through the fields.  At first glance you may think that this may be a lot to handle, but the more time I spent with them the more I could understand how they love each other and enjoy each others company.  A few of these babies are Atlanta Lab Rescue foster dogs, and I will be using one of the photos from this session for our upcoming 2014 Calendar to benefit ALR!

You can tell on the faces of all of these dogs how much fun they are having!  Below you can see Candy and Momma, two peas in a very bog pod, chasing each other through the fields!  They have the best time together!

Candy (below) is an Atlanta Lab Rescue dog, who came into our program broken and scared.  She is now thriving in her foster home, and hoping to find her forever home soon…maybe someone who could take Momma as well, since these two are SUCH the pair!  I mean really, how can you resist this face?!?!  She has the neatest personality!

This next photo is what our time outdoors was all about…pure JOY…and laughing as they would disappear and then JUMP straight out of the brush!  Below you can see Candy and Riley doing just that!

Momma, or ‘Maizy’ on the Atlanta Lab Rescue site, is a beautiful girl living large in her foster home!  She is calm, sweet, and a great big sister to Candy.

Max might have come home with me, for at least a sleep-over, if Kelly would let him!  Max is a handsome boy who loves people and is such a loyal friend.  I am pretty sure Max leaves a special mark on each heart he meets!

Kenzo showing off his tracking skills!  To be the only chocolate amongst so many yellow beauties is not hard for Kenzo, I mean, look at him he’s stunning!  This handsome stud-muffin is another Atlanta Lab Rescue who has come so far since joining the team.  I cannot believe that he is recovering from hip surgery, he gets around so well!

Sweet Dazzle’s eyes will melt your heart!  She is soft, and kind, and quiet.  I was happy when she would come over and let me love on her!  You can see in her eye’s how happy she is!

After a long morning full of exercise and showing off for the camera it was time to settle in at home.  We still had a mission of getting our ‘cover shot’ for the calendar, but it was fun to get some photos of the crew resting.

Special thanks to Kelly and her pack for spending the morning with me!  Each time I fall in love with the dogs I photograph, and these dogs are very special to me now!  For more information on how to foster or adopt through Atlanta Lab Rescue please visit the website today!  Each of our dogs are amazing and so grateful to be in loving homes, they really will be the most loyal dogs you have ever had!

Cassie | Senior Dog Photographer :: Atlanta Lab Rescue

A few weeks ago, on my quest to create an awesome calendar for Atlanta Lab Rescue, I got to meet Cassie!  Cassie is a senior dog who is living out the rest of her life comfortable in the hands of an Atlanta Lab Rescue volunteer.  Thank God for volunteers like you!  This sweet girl is 15 years old and still going on walks twice a day.  She has two younger brothers to keep her busy, and a mama that gives her LOTS of love.

It was so fun getting to see how much personality still lives inside this sweet girl.  Just when I thought she was getting bored with me, she got a little silly…

I love the wisdom in the eyes of an old dog.  They are genuine, intelligent, and welcoming.  They make me think of the dogs I have loved in my life, and how sweet it is to care for one in old age.  They are our best friends, and how sweet it is to love a lab seasoned with life!  

Cassie is still very loved by her owner, who is now living in an assisted living home.  I was happy to hear that she and Cassie got to visit not long ago!

Thanks to Cassie and her new mama for letting me come over and spend some time with you!  It was a true joy and an afternoon that I will remember. Please keep an eye out for our upcoming Atlanta Lab Rescue 2014 calendar, you will not want to miss the ALR “treat” we have for you!
