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!
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.
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! 🙂
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!
We made sure to have some down-time too…
Thanks to Kim and Brutus for such a well balanced shoot!
I had a great time this weekend in Spokane, Wa! I got to play with two A-dorable pups named Sammi and Brutus.
Here’s a little sneak peek of both their personal sessions:
More to come when I get back to Seattle!
Have you voted yet?
Meet Chloe and Nani.
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.
Chloe 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.
Chloe’s favorite toy? Her Frisbee!
I think the tail just makes this next shot! So cute – she means business!
Action shot! – yup, that’s broccoli.
Blurry pups at play – these are more ‘out takes’ but I thought they were kind of fun.
We moseyed on over to the water front after a good session of playtime, and enjoyed the scenery.
Gotta love mommy kisses! – I love the face that dogs and cats make when they get kisses from their people, they just look so content.
A puppy trying to get a average sized ball in their mouth…gets me every time! 🙂
And look at Chloe’s pretty spots! – so sweet!
Thanks to their momma, Michelle, for helping orchestrate the shoot, it was certainly a team effort 🙂
Chloe and Nani did a fantastic job! They deserve some more string cheese 😉
Thanks again to everyone who came to visit our booth. We loved to meet you, we loved to meet your pups, and we were glad to be a nice ‘cool’ rest stop for many of you 🙂
What a fun day!
Let’s get right to it, shall we…
STILL more to come!…
Like I said, Amanda and I had a great time yesterday afternoon – so many great people, which means, so many great dogs!
I won’t bore you too much with words, because it’s all in the pictures.
If you spot your adorable pooch and are interested in prints, send us a note, we’d be happy to order as many prints as you desire. 🙂
And our “Dog/Owner Look A Like” contest participants! They were such good sports!
I still can’t get over how lucky I was to get this next shot! It’s one of my new favorites.
I still have LOTS to share! Come back for more later in the afternoon…
Take care everyone,
A BIG ‘thank you’ to everyone who stopped by our booth today at ‘Go Dog, Go’!
Amanda and I had such a great time meeting everyone and every pup!
We’ve got LOTS of images to share, so do bear with us as we get them all organized and ready to post. 🙂
To be continued…
