I’m a little late to the party, but I finally put some of my favorites from last autumn’s Sand & Sage AKC hunt test to video. I photographed this event near Othello, WA over a beautiful autumn weekend. I am really looking forward to the next hunt test coming up in April of 2018.

Here are dogs that competed in the Junior division.

Oh Deer

White-Tailed Deer In A Montana Cherry Orchard

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could go no further than just a few steps outside your front door to see beautiful creatures such as these white-tailed deer? Well maybe not, if you’re a gardener. As a photographer though, I was happy to see these young bucks and does deer roaming nearby on a beautiful autumn day in Montana, just off the shore of Flathead Lake where I was visiting family.

Sweet Dream Piglets

The theme of the Benton-Franklin fair this year is “Best Week Of Summer”. It looked to me that these cute piglets at Old MacDonald’s barn were having THEIR best week of summer while napping together. That all ended in a hurry though as soon as their mamma strolled by, bursting with milk. For the next few moments, it was pandemonium and survival of the fittest. Note the three barely visible piglets at the bottom of the pile. I’m not sure how they manage to avoid suffocation in that position, but it didn’t seem to phase them one bit.


It’s A Dog’s Life


DOGS — Big one, little ones, pure bred, mixed breed, fat, skinny, fluffy, fast or slow. I haven’t met one I didn’t like yet. I have two of my own — a red heeler mix cattle dog and a mini-schnauzer. They make quite the pair. Not a day in my life goes by that they don’t brighten it up in one way or another. If you are a dog lover, I know that you know exactly what I mean by that.

Dogs are one of my favorite subjects to photograph. To learn more about my “petography” sessions, contact me with the form below for more information. Let’s take a walk in the park (or your back yard) and create some CRAZY BEAUTIFUL images of you and your BEST FRIEND for memories you will treasure for many years.

Here are some samples of my work for you to browse and enjoy.

Cat Available for ASAP Adoption

Meet Rhino. This beautiful black and white cat is currently in foster care, waiting for his new forever home.

He’s oh, so beautiful, with his soft and silky coat of black and white patches. He is a bit of a loner when it comes to other cats and dogs. He will get along with them just fine, but pay no attention to them. He’d prefer to have you and your lap all to himself. Rhino is available for adoption through ASAP (Adopt Shelter Animal Pets) of West Richland, WA. For more information about Rhino, contact them here.
