Instagram Update ABJphoto!

June and July have really flown by…summer always seems so far away, so many fun plans, and then BOOM you are almost to August!  Here is a little Insta-Update of what we have been up to around here.  You can also view our daily happenings on the sidebar!  Lots of dogs, lake time, and friends visiting between school and work time.  This sumer we have hunkered down close to home due to David’s school schedule and it has been nice to escape to the lake on the weekends when we can.

Thank you to everyone following along as I go after my dream of full-time photography!  Digging into pet photography, and connecting with previous clients in new ways has been so fun!  Not to mention I am saving gas and my sanity not driving downtown everyday!  Thank you for your support and encouragement!

Atlanta Lab Rescue | Bark for Art Event

This past weekend the Atlanta Lab Rescue had their Bark for Art event in Buckhead!  It was a fun night of art, music, great food, and of course dogs!  Here are some highlights from the night.  This event sponsored the Atlanta Lab Rescue’s efforts to rescue and place dogs into loving homes.  It was my first time attending the Bark for Art event.  I was so excited to see all of the art up for auction, great gift baskets, Masters tickets, and so much more!  If you could not make it this year keep an eye out on the ALR facebook page next year and try to come, it makes for a great date night!

My foster baby Koz was the hit of the night, everyone loved him!  Now, just need to find that baby a home!Koz and Bug loved being able to hang out in an art gallery!  Can you imagine, two puppies in an art gallery?  Well, they were perfect!  Someone take these babies home?  Haha!  Sweet, sweet, puppies!

Want to meet some great dogs?  Join the Atlanta Lab Rescue at K9 Planet in Roswell for our adoption day this weekend: Saturday July 27th from 12-2pm!

Woodstock Family and Dog Photographer | Mack + Tonka

I recently spent the afternoon with a sweet family in Woodstock, GA and grabbed some fun photos of their Chocolate lab boys!  This family is a part of the Atlanta Lab Rescue alumni crew!  Mac and Tonka are true brothers, just a litter or two apart!  Rescued at the same time the Jeskey’s were extra awesome and adopted BOTH of them!

We spent the afternoon playing outside, and their family was kind enough to turn our photo session into a dinner party!  We shared a Mexican fiesta, and got to watch ‘The Boys” play.  I want to say a special thanks to the Jeskey’s for spoiling me with yummy food and kindness!  Mac + Tonka really won the lottery with this family!

At the end of the night the boys sent me out with some singing!  They sure know how to put on a show!

Alpharetta Family and Dog Photography | Lucy, Cider, and Turner

A few weekends ago I received the sweetest email from a family who has been struck with some surprising news about their black lab, Turner.  Turner is living with cancer, and his family wanted to get together for some photos with this sweet boy to celebrate him and their lives together.  I was immediately a mix of emotions – so very THANKFUL that they contacted me, and also so heavy hearted for sweet Turner.  To love a dog, and to be LOVED by a dog, is such a joy.  I am excited to share these images with you.  Our session was full of fun, play, hiking, and laughter.

Lucy is a 9 year old labradoodle who is the matriarch of this “dog family”.  She loves to sniff and can balance a treat on her nose – she can catch it in her mouth!  Cider (LOVE that name) is a 9 year old yellow lab who is great off leash and full of love.  He was the best “poser” of the day – haha!  And, last but not least is Turner!  At 4 years old he is still strong and loves to play and run.  Turner was rescued from a barn by his brother Will and those two have a special bond!  As you can see this session encompasses everything I love: labs, rescues, and the outdoors!

Turner, Cider, and Lucy had a great time running around the ball park playing with ropes and squeakier toys, it was very cute!  We had our session at their favorite place to go for walks.

Thank you SO MUCH to the WHOLE family for coming out and braving the looming storm clouds!  It was such a fun afternoon, and I hope that these images bring smiles and warm memories!
