One look at these photos though and you may also agree that happiness is a fluffy, snow-white, six-month-old miniature American Eskimo puppy named Zara. Does anyone else think this pretty girl is totally smiling for the Read More

Huck the Labrador Retriever – Beaver County Pet Photography

Pure magic. That’s all I can say. From one of my favorite locations to the weather that transformed from an intense August downpour to a warm, golden glow, everything about Huck’s session was absolutely magical. Patience paid off as the overcast skies and dismal drizzle lifted and a sun-filled misty haze filtered through the trees Read More

Sandy & Tortola, Bonded Chihuahuas – South Park Pet Photography

I always say I enjoy a challenge. When Sandy and Tortola’s mom Emma shared her one wish for her bonded Chihuahuas’ calendar session, I knew I had to make it happen. “Sandy and Tortola are such fun dogs with such fun personalities, but I feel like no one but my boyfriend and my mom get to Read More

Cersei the Rottweiler – Beaver County Pet Photography

Surely you’ve heard the saying, “Love is a four-legged word.” Cersei, the four-year-old rottweiler whom I photographed for the upcoming FurKid Rescue pet calendar, is proof of that. Just ask her mom Mindy. Although she was the one who entered Ceresi in to the calendar contest, Mindy, a self-proclaimed cat-person, did not grow up with Read More

Pet Photography Project 52, Week 29: Sky, Before & After

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a before-and-after, so I thought week 29’s sky theme was a great opportunity. You see, while I intended on using Hunter for this week’s photo, living on four heavily wooded acres doesn’t always allow for the best views of the open sky, so I turned to a favorite Read More
