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.

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 28: Comic Pop Art

Comic, huh? Well, what direction to take this week’s Pet Photography Project 52 theme… I wanted to create something different, but what. My mind kept going back to art.

Finn the Husky/Retriever Mix – Schenley Park Pet Photography

Like my Hunter, he’s a husky/retriever mix–so I was already in love–but it wasn’t until this handsome, happy, heartthrob bounced up to me at Schenley Park that he really won me over. Listening to Finn’s mom Becky tell Read More
