Rescue Puppies!

Yup – this just happened!  These adorable pups will soon be available for adoption through ‘On My Way Home Dachshund Rescue‘.  The pups mama, Hope, was pregnant and rescued from the streets of Tijuana, Mexico. Hope unexpectedly passed away 5 weeks after her pups were born. The rescue and foster family are heartbroken over losing Hope, but they are focused on the pups and their needs and are celebrating Hope’s life through her beautiful babies!

Here’s one with the pups surrounding Hope’s ashes:

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. :-)

Part of the pleasure of a pet portrait from Pet’ographique is remembering the behind the scenes experience. Each time I look at one of the resulting portraits, I smile as I remember chasing my dogs around the studio!!

So happy to know that the trio aren’t the only ones that are a challenge. In fact, the photo you have here is my all time favorite so getting there wasn’t so bad after all! Love you!


Absolutely loved the before and after photos! They are just great! It shows what a job it is to do pet photography, it’s not always easy to pose an animal! Great job!
