This awesome session with Jovi and his owners took place a couple months ago at the awesome Lake Meridian Park! The skies were extra gray and daunting that morning, but we lucked out and the rain held off until the tail end of our session!
I photographed Amy and her Corgi puppy Peggy (how cute is that alliteration?!?) back in January.
We completely lucked out with the weather and had a gorgeous sunny day, so we took little Pegs (how cute is that nickname?!?) out for a walk to Gasworks Park and found this awesomely bright tile:
I love this shot with her tongue sticking out!
We walked a little farther and found a bunch of leaves that Peggy insisted on jumping into. If I had worn my boots, I would have joined her.
I love this shot of the girls:
On our walk back to Amy’s place, little Peggy showed her puppiness: she couldn’t figure out how to go up the huge stairs! She went up one, then just stood there looking at us.
Amy ordered a picture book from the session and when I delivered it to her in February I was so surprised at how much Peggy had grown; a month does wonders for puppies! Can’t wait to see how big she is at our next photo session!
I recently made a trip to New Mexico (you can read about it here and here on my Art of Subtlety blog) and while I was there I met this cutie named Baxter:
Baxter has quite the life. His family lives on a beautiful property in a town called Placitas, where he spends his time hiking with his owners, watching wild horses roam free, playing with out of town visitors, and eating treats in his yard.
He has the most captivating eyes that make you melt and fall immediately in love.
My favorite thing about Baxter though was his tongue. Look at these cool spots!
A HUGE thanks goes out to Baxter and the Stueber family for inviting me into their home and showing me such kindness and generosity during my travels.
I can’t believe this is the 3rd post in a row that features cats! Generally I get a mix of cats & dogs, but it must be kitten season in Seattle. 🙂
I went up to Everett yesterday to photograph this little sweetie:
She doesn’t have an official name yet, so for now her owners are calling her Baby Girl.
Not to be overshadowed, Baby Girl’s other house mates, Thriller & Kita, wanted to share the spot light.
One of my favorites of the day is this one of Thriller giving Baby Girl a little kiss:
While I was vacationing in Vancouver, BC for the Olympics, I had the chance to photograph two very adorable cats.
Sassy was so friendly and talkative while I was photographing her and she fell asleep in my lap on more than one occasion.
Abby was much more shy & reserved, but once she warmed up to me she didn’t want to leave my side.
Thanks again to Sassy & Abby for giving me plenty of kitty love & making me feel right at home in Vancouver.
Hello blog readers! I know it’s been awhile since we last spoke, but that’s because so much has been going on and time has just slipped through our fingers. Let’s catch up…
Charity is back in Seattle after 3 months of travel and photography through Europe. It’s fabulous to have her only 15 minutes away instead of a trans-Atlantic flight away. I definitely missed having her nearby, especially during the holidays when things got chaotic and stressful and all I could think about was how nice it would be to laugh and hang out with her and eat at a yummy Indian lunch buffet where we’d both go for seconds without thinking twice. 🙂
Charity‘s return spurred us to dedicate some quality time to PaddyWag and we’ve been working diligently for the past 2 months solidifying our mission statement, perfecting our workflow, creating new products and revamping our portfolio. We’re proud of what we’ve done and cannot wait to show it off to current and future PaddyWag clients, so check us out at our new website PaddyWag.com!
Since blog posts are WAY more fun when there are pictures, here are a few of our long time client Maddison during her latest photo session.
Happy almost-St Patrick’s Day!
You know how much I love Story People and the silly little Story of the Day emails that I get. Today had another dog related one titled “Tofu Pup.”
“taunting the neighbor’s dog with meat-flavored tofu because he can’t get anyone else to eat it.”
Charity and I are so excited and honored to be voted #1 for Pet Photography in King 5’s Best of Western Washington contest! A HUGE thank you goes out to all of you who voted for us! We couldn’t have done it without all your support! 🙂
Charity and I feel so lucky to have such amazing clients. I wanted to share a few of the reviews written about us:
“PaddyWag is great at capturing your pet’s personality. They are professional, thoughtful and just downright creative photographers.” –laurajmack
“Because they take the time to get THE shot! And they are not afraid to get down and dirty for the perfect picture!” –michellec
“The importance of rapport between subject and photographer cannot be overstated. No other photographer in Western Washington has an easier time developing an immediate connection with our four-legged family members than Amanda and Charity. Take a look for yourself … you’ll see what I mean.” –Huyman
“Both Amanda and Charity have great personalities, and get along great with animals and people. It is rare to find people who interact so well with both. I would definitely recommend them to any one looking to capture the best of their pets.” –rwallace31915
“Wow I receive comments all the time about our dogs pictures. Amanda is amazing–so much patience with your animals. I would recommend Amanda to family and friends. Thank you so much.” –Tyler, Cora, Baker and Lola
“Charity is amazingly sweet and the photos that she has produced are absolutely adorable. She is one of the easiest people in the world to get along with!” –Clayton Ryan
Thank you again everyone!
We love you all! 🙂
On this rainy, blustery Saturday, I stumbled upon a few old images that I thought might be fun to resurface.
These are some early beginnings to PaddyWag – in fact one of these images was the precursor that sprung the idea in the first place.
Can you guess which one?
*if you guessed the last one, you are right!
Have a great Saturday everyone – I think I see a little blue sky peaking through the clouds…
