I was contact in February by Meagan who found me through the Joy Session Website.  She wanted me to photograph her beautiful Great Dane mix,  Daisy after she was diagnosed with cancer the day after Christmas.

Meagan met Daisy  7 years ago after an extremely difficult time in her life. Meagan was volunteering at the SPCA of Texas  by walking the dogs. After meeting Daisy and noticing about much that Daisy looked like Meagan felt, there was an immediate connection. Not prepared at all to adopt a dog, she left the shelter. On her drive home, she called her mom and told her about this dog she met. Her mom urged her to go back and adopt her and she did. When Meagan returned to the shelter, there was a man in her kennel and Daisy looked terrified. Meagan told this man that Daisy was hers. He looked at her like she was crazy, but when Daisy came over and sat on her feet, he realized they weren’t meant to be together.  Daisy was one very lucky girl that Meagan saved her that day because the next day, Daisy got bloat and almost died. Had Meagan not gotten her the treatment she needed immediately she would not have survived. That was the beginning of their life together.

In Meagan’s words “Daisy Martin was a most precious soul and hands down one of the greatest blessings in my life. She knew I was hers before I did and spent her time on Earth teaching me to slow down, be more patient, pick cuddle time over chores, and to always take time to breathe everything in. ”




A dear friend of mine contacted me because she wanted to share the good news that she was “expecting” through photos. So we did a pregnancy reveal session. We had a wonderful time at Grapevine Botanical Gardens where we even included their very special Dachshund girl, Tenley, who will be a big sister soon!

Last week I had the honor of photographing a session for a friend, Lauren. Lauren and her family are animal rescuers and do so much fostering and volunteering for our rescue community.  She wanted to gift a session to her mom and dad of their 18 year old family cat, Crystal (AKA BC or “Bad Cat”) and their dog, Wally. Well, I can’t say for sure she is a bad cat, but she was not a happy cat! lol   I actually had the giggles for most of this session because she was so angry and would not look at me. She hissed and tried to run away. So… to say this session was a challenge is a little bit of an understatement! LOL   Either way, I had so much fun capturing this sweet family and their wonderful sense of humor and love for their pets!

This sweet couple and their Pug, Inman, came to me a few weeks ago for their family session.  Inman was adopted from DFW Pug Rescue and was actually a foster failure. They intended to foster him, but fell in love and couldn’t give him up. After meeting him, I could totally see why. He was an absolutely adorable little man!
