Last week I photographed some of the graduates of Hollywood Dog™ for their portfolios. Hollywood Dog™ is offered at DFW Dog Quest Training center in Lewisville, TX taught by Traci Murdock, CPDT-KA of Training Spot. Traci is a Master Trainer, Canine Behavior Specialist, and Certified Professional Dog Trainer.

If you think your pup has what it takes to be a star, check out this fun class!

Below are the graduates along with some others that participated in the photo shoot.

Next graduation photos will be on May 14, 2015 at 6pm. Hope to see you there!

Hollywood Dogs


I received my Professional Photographer Magazine today and am on top of the moon to be featured again this month. This time for receiving the 2014 Diamond Photographer of the Year award. I really don’t feel deserving of this honor… it’s just too good to be true! The image they chose for the magazine is of a little guy I photographed for the Humane Society of Flower Mound titled “How You Measure Cute”.



A few weeks ago I got to photograph two of the cutest Spaniels I’ve ever met! These guys are “Boykin Spaniels“… a breed I’d never heard of until meeting them. They are actually the Official State Dog of South Carolina. That’s your fun-fact for the day!:)These two are such charmers and were so much fun to photograph with their adoring mom, Tracye.

Tracye adopted Archie 4 years ago when her Australian shepherd, Wrangler, died.  Archie is the big one on the left.  They like to do agility and all kinds of fun stuff together. When she adopted him, he had heart worms and went through the quick kill treatment and did wonderfully.   Then Tracye got Jesse from the same shelter in February of this year.  He also had heart worms, along with Kennel cough, pneumonia, broken tooth, needed neutering, and heart worm treatment.  This was one of the reasons our session was delayed for a few months. She wanted him healthy for his special photo session.  He will start agility this week.  They both bring her so much joy!

This session is part of the new North Richland Hills Animal Adoption and Rescue Center (NRHAARC) fundraiser to help raise money for their new building.  You too can honor your pet by having their photo displayed on the walls of the new shelter.  For more details, please visit the NRHAARC donation page for other ways to be a part of the new shelter!

Tracye adopted both Archie and Jessie from the Grand Prairie Animal Shelter.
