Bones, a Bluetick Coonhound

I met Bones and his mom and dad this past weekend to complete our photo session that had been gifted to Bones’ parents for Christmas. I was so happy they wanted the session to take place in downtown Charleston! Despite the cold, crisp weather, and Bones’ cheerful howling around every corner (which brought tons of […]

Dog Day at the Charleston RiverDogs

Whoever said everything’s better when you can bring along your dog (I think it was actually me who said it, just now) is right, as we found out yesterday when we took Cooper to watch the Charleston RiverDogs play the Rome Braves during Dog Day at the Joe in Charleston.

Paul Camphuijzen - Na lang beraad hebben wij onze keuze laten vallen op de hond genaamd “I’m startin’ to get the hang of these seats…”.
We denken aantrekkelijke gegadigden te zijn omdat we gelijksoortig meubilair als op de foto hebben, waardoor de gewenningsperiode minimaal zal zijn. Onze hond Einstein is reeds ingelicht en uiteraard zijn verzendkosten geheel voor ònze rekening…….(;-))

Tonny - Cooper and his dark little brother are the most beautiful dogs.
Nice, a dog-day at baseball. I think we don’t have anything like that in Holland but we don’t have the River Dogs.

Alice G Patterson - So fun to see so many dog lovers hanging out at a game together!

Rest in Peace, Maggie

Last December I was contacted by a photographer in Ohio who inquired whether I was available to photograph her Charleston friend’s dog, Maggie, whose health was rapidly declining. We scheduled a shoot, and although I was able to capture some nice images at that time, it was clear from the look in Maggie’s eyes that […]
