Old Dogs. Why I fell in love with a company – and now I own part of it.

Sooooo… here is my huge announcement that I have been hinting at on social media! No, I’m not getting married, I’m not preggo, not moving, and not leaving my job… haha! I now own part of 3 American made and sewn (in San Diego!) clothing companies – Stonewear Designs, Walz Caps, and Sew Sporty! In the […]

Keep Truckin’ – Why I LOVE this company

Ok – so I love stories about businesses and passions that spring out of {extremely} hard life events. Keep Truckin’ is probably one of my favorite of those stories. I actually shot Nori and Trevor’s wedding a few years ago, and it, of course, featured their awesome canine companion, Edison (and he’s regular model on […]

Wild Parsnip is the devil – and the Midwest Conservation Dogs are here to save us from this nasty plant. (oh and a tortoise )

This is going to be known as the summer of wild parsnip.  Earlier in the summer I was at a shoot for Bast Durbin, and posted photos of our truck in the field on to Facebook.  I thought it looked cool, but Facebook thought I was nuts (that in itself is normal…).  Apparently we had […]

Bird dogs and babies – or, how to shoot a maternity session with some German Shorthairs

This maternity/puppy/bird dog session was a combo of awesomeness that I cannot truly express. Jenna, Danny, Alisa (Jenna’s sister) and myself basically cried we were laughing so hard at the dogs photobombing most of the maternity announcement portion.  The fact that we got them to sit still for as long as we did shows that […]

Ashland Police Department K9 Initiative (and two bird dogs… ;) )

Officer Nick Ovaska has loved dogs – especially working dogs, his whole life. I recently spoke with him about the Ashland Police Department K-9 Initiative, and in the process took photos of his two bird dogs Freckles & Cheeto. Freckles (who was rescued at 8 weeks old) and Cheeto work together while bird hunting – […]

Cindy, Tim, and the Furchildren (and some chickens… ;) )

Last fall I had a blast photographing Cindy, Tim, and their fur & feathered children. We started at their house, played with some toys, were herded by some chickens, and then we headed down to the beach.  I love Maddie’s beautiful old girl eyes :). For more information on booking your session please shoot me […]
