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!

New Mexico Baxter :: Seattle Pet Photographers

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.

“Because they take the time to get THE shot! And they are not afraid to get down and dirty for the perfect picture!”  –michellec

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

Thank you again everyone!

We love you all! 🙂

Brutus :: Spokane Pet Photography

As promised,

meet Brutus!  An adorable lab mix, who is *apparently 7 months old!?…he’s SO big! – I questioned his mother a handful of times, but she swore up and down that he was indeed so young.

He certainly was a puppy at heart though, which made for a very fun and energetic shoot!

I couldn’t resist having that be the first shot, it was just too cute!

Chloe is Nani’s older sister, and tends to show her the ropes.  And Nani is more than happy to learn from her big sis.

_MG_0055-71-1Chloe and Nani’s mom and dad met up with me at the Washington Park Arboretum in Seattle.  Chloe and Nani had never been, so we had a grand ol’ time playing and discovering the new surroundings.
