Cheer on Keno at the Puppy Bowl!

The NevadaSPCA made a big announcement this week.  Keno, a rescue puppy at the NevadaSPCA, was selected by Animal Planet to participate in Puppy Bowl XI on February 1, beginning at 12-noon (Pacific time)!  He is one of 55 puppies competing for MVP (Most Valuable Puppy) in the game.  At the time of rescue Keno was just weeks old and abandoned in a soiled cardboard box.  He has blossomed in his foster home and has even made it out to New York City for tv appearances.  We had the honor of photographing Keno as he prepared for the big game!  So while you’re getting ready to watch the Super Bowl, preparing food, and filling your coolers with ice, turn on Animal Planet and cheer Keno on at Puppy Bowl XI! 

Behind the Scenes!

Have you ever wondered what really goes on behind the scenes at a Pet’ographique photo shoot?  Well now’s your chance to find out!  Below is a collection of outtake images showing the adorable, chaotic moments leading up to capturing “the shot”.  Whether barking, jumping off the background, biting their leash, or sitting perfectly for the camera, I love how all of these babies look adorable no matter what they’re doing!


Thoroughly ENJOYED seeing all of those ‘Behind the Scene’ shots! So hilarious, the reality of it all … Amazing how you can get your final perfect portraits, Arica! ♡

I love the behind the scenes photos! It made me laugh thinking how funny they were and how much they wanted treats versus having their picture taken. The life of pets. :-)

Golden Retriever Rescue Calendar

For the past few years we’ve been working with the Golden Retriever Rescue of Southern Nevada to create a calendar to raise funds for their wonderful organization.  Each year we donate 13 studio portrait sessions (12 months & 1 cover image).  This year we decided to switch it up and give donors the option of doing a studio or outdoor session.  We ended shooting 11 sessions outdoors and 2 sessions in the studio.  We’ve gotten great feedback on the images and the Golden Retriever Rescue said this is by far their favorite calendar yet!  Click here to purchase your 2015 & 2016 calendars!  All calendar proceeds benefit the Golden Retriever Rescue of Southern Nevada.  Here are some of my favorite shots as well as behind the scene images!


Always LOVE them beautiful Goldens! Fun to see you get down on the job, Arica!
