Charlotte :: Seattle Dog Photographer

Meet Charlotte.

She’s a princess in the making.

Well…she’s working on it…

But her mother loves her just the way that she is.

Refined at times…

or just being a pup.

Yep.  Charlotte lives a pretty charmed life.

A family the adores her…

and a face that you can’t help but love!

Huge ‘Thanks’ to Charlotte and her family, Victoria and Grant, for such a fun November photo session.

It was a true pleasure to play with such a sweet little princess!

Happy Holidays everyone!

Daisy: Revisited

You might remember this face from 6 months ago, the sweet Daisy girl.

Now that it’s summer time, Daisy and I decided to have an adventure outside, and boy was she a riot!

That girl is one big ball of energy!


She loved that ball of hers, no matter how deflated it may have been 🙂






Look at this goof ball!


Did I mention that she was full of energy?!





Needless to say, Daisy and I had a great time!


Happy Sunshine everyone!

a present for Elvis & Mitzie

I’d been searching for the perfect Christmas gift for Mitzie & Elvis (my 2 favorite dachshunds) and finally found just what they needed at Eastside Dog.

Check out the adorable star-shaped squeaky toys (and the awesome snow at my house):


My favorite part about the toys? They come apart so each dog gets their own star—-this way Dennis & Patricia (Elvis & Mitzie’s owners) can decide who’s been naughty and who’s been nice!

Eastside Dog is located in Redmond Town Center at
7533 166th Ave NE
Redmond, WA 98052

They’re open Monday-Saturday 10am to 9pm

and Sunday 11am to 7pm.

Happy shopping!

a present for Elvis & Mitzie


No matter how much I plan, there always seems to be an unexpected moment that happens during a photo session. I’ve seen just about everything, from dogs doing their business right when I snap a shot, to brides getting nose bleeds during their wedding ceremony. In today’s post, I thought I’d share some PaddyWag “oops!” pictures with you all.








Not exactly an “oops”, but I thought it was funny that the sign maker made sure there was an extra “X” over the dog’s mess.



it’s a small world after all…

I’m always amazed at how small our world really is.

During the later part of summer and into the fall, I played Friday night ice hockey with a great group of guys, one in particular named Brian. Brian’s the kind of guy that I like to have on the ice with me–always smiling, always offering constructive criticism, always treating me like one of the guys even though I’m the only girl out there. Not to mention that when we played on the same team, he’d pass me the puck even though I was one of the least skilled players out there.

My fiance Nate played Friday nights too, and one night as we were heading home he showed me a stuffed animal Brian had given him. It was Rover from the comic strip Red and Rover. Turns out Brian the hockey player is also Brian Basset the comic strip writer (he writes Red and Rover as well as Adam @ Home)!

So here’s a big THANK YOU to Brian, not only for making me smile on the ice, but making me smile off of it too.

🙂 Amanda
