New Session Favorites: Snickers, Guinea Pig; Philadelphia, PA

Hello, hi and welcome to another episode of Pet Imagery session favorites! I am super excited to showcase Snickers, a 4 year old Guinea Pig! Snickers is living the city life together with his incredibly sweet mom in their Philly apartment. These two have such an amazing bond and I’m so glad we were able to capture these memories. Snickers has been a great source of strength and  unconditional love for his loving and caring mom. They have helped each other get through some tough times so it was an honor to photograph their special union. I was over-the-moon giddy to meet these two because in all my years of photographing people’s pets, I have not photographed any Guinea Pigs! It’s shocking, I know! Snickers was such a natural–you’d think he was a professional Guinea Pig model the way he was working the camera! He really enjoyed snuggling with mom and hanging in some of his favorites spots. Snickers was happy as a clam as long as mom was showing him lots of TLC and giving carrot treats! Oh he loves his carrots!  I also was able to snap a photo of Snicker’s fish pal, Midnight, the gorgeous Betta! What a fun session with this crew! Here’s a few highlights from our time together!

 

Thank you for taking the time to view the photos! Please share with your pet loving friends and family!

Aside from the Spring rain showers, it is a wonderful time to schedule your Pet Imagery session with me! Let’s do it!

Have a great day!

New Session Favorites: Duke and Family; Philadelphia, PA

Hey folks! Thanks for checking out my most recent session favorites! My time with Duke and his family was such a gift. I have known this handsome senior and his parents for a number of years now. Every time I get to see Duke (11yrs, Boxer), he has always greeted me with such a force of pure happiness and energy! Our recent visit was no exception–however, Duke’s physical state has declined in recent months. It has been extremely difficult for his parents to witness the changes and deal with the challenges he faces every day. His charming smile and spirited personality are still ever-present. In all honesty, Duke seems completely unaware of his physical deterioration. Despite all the odds, he continues to have the will and desire to push forward and enjoy life as much as he can. That force of happiness was on full display during our session last month! Together with his family, Duke mustered up so much strength and posed for me in the South Philly Spring landscape. We walked over to a local park and Duke’s little human brother enjoyed some camera time as well! After Duke got a little too excited with a stick, we soon headed back to their house for some fun with bubbles! I love this crew to pieces and I am so very glad we were able to capture these moments together.

Here are a few favorites from our session!

  I have an awesome Guinea Pig session to showcase next! Stay tuned! Also, there are still some time to schedule your session with me before the super hot months come around! Let’s connect and capture some moments together with your beloved furry family!

Thank you for taking the time to view the photos!

New Session Favorites: Georgia Grace, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel; Ridley Creek Park, PA

Hey, Hi and Hello! Thanks for stopping by for an awesome showcase of the super stunning Georgia Grace! I’m so glad I got to meet this sweet, sweet gal and her fabulous mom! These two have been an inseparable pair ever since the summer of 2009, when Georgia was just a little tiny pup and had not a care in the world! These blissful first couple years were short lived–Georgia had started to develop her first string of medical issues at the young age 2. Her chronic illnesses range from arthritis and syringomyelia to hip dysplasia and heart disease. As if all that wasn’t enough, she was recently diagnosed with Diabetes and suffers from various chronic skin conditions. Georgia has been dealt a very tough hand. Despite all the pain and suffering she has endured, she still pushes through and takes each day as a gift. That can also be said of Georgia’s incredible mom, who has dealt with her own set of chronic illnesses for many years now. She has been through so much, physically, financially, but also the mental toll from taking care of Georgia has been extremely stressful and draining. The two find strength in each other and the bond they share is extraordinary. Georgia’s mom has recently found comfort and healing in writing about her life through her personal blog. She posted about her life with Georgia (who just turned 9yrs!) which you can read more about it here: https://themighty.com/2018/01/chronically-ill-pet/  and a book is being planned for the near future!

Our session filled me with such a wave of inspiration. It was incredible to see Georgia Grace enjoy her surroundings and bop around with such wonderful curiosity. We met at Ridley Creek State Park, an awesome spot for a pet session! There are lots of interesting rustic structures and Spring had just started to burst with color. You would really have no idea that Georgia was the least bit sick as she smiled and strolled along the green landscape with us. It was a hot day so Georgia made sure to drink lots of water during our time together and she also loved posing with mom of course! She didn’t want to leave mom’s side except to get TLC from yours truly! My heart fills joy thinking about how much fun we had together! She was such a natural on camera! Oh and that tongue!! Here are a few favorites from our session…

Thank you for taking the time to view the recent photos! Lots of exciting shoots coming up but there is still time to schedule your pet session with me this Spring! Don’t wait until it’s ungodly hot out!

Enjoy your day!
