You can’t have a family picture without a cute dog in it.

I want a dog just so that I can take family photos with it.  Maybe I can borrow someone’s dog for my own Christmas card pictures.  Don’t get me wrong – I love my pets.  It’s just that my cats don’t really aspire to be models. 


The Durhams (including Riley)

Riley has a touch of canine ADHD.  But such a cutie!

If their parents ever need a break, I would happily take both of these cutie pies home with me!


The Halls (including Buddy the Christmas Elf)

Buddy is so cute.  But as his daddy says, “You have to embrace the fatness.”  I tried my best to use only slimming poses for sweet Buddy who was exhausted by his modeling gig.

I love animals.  I wish I had room for more of them in my life.  But my goodness…I thought grumpy children were there worst portrait subjects – nope!  This is Hernando, my frequent, but reluctant model.  He’s impossible to photograph.  Unless there’s a touch of The Nip sprinkled on the set (that would be the crumbs around his mouth and paw).  I have no good pictures of my other furry child because she simply won’t stand for it.

Dogs seem to be much easier (and significantly less grumpy).  My friend Emily of Onesie Couture asked me to take a few pictures of her furry children George and Mini.  These dogs were so sweet and well-behaved.  And I love Emily’s explanation of Mini’s name (“he looked like George so we called him Mini George”)!  That girl cracks me up!
