The end of 2015 went by in a flurry of activity — photography sessions, workshop planning, etc. Time slots for sessions were very limited — especially this year when our Autumn color didn’t materialize until very late in the season. And of course in California during a drought, sometimes Mother Nature just doesn’t cooperate, and we have to get creative. Here are a couple of my favorite images from this Fall. I think I had an Australian shepherd theme going for the season, with both handsome Samson photographed in front of the historic brick wall of the Carey House Hotel in Placerville, California and in a grassy field near Coloma, as well as the adorable aussie puppy Toby photographed against some vivid Fall leaves. I was also lucky enough to photograph some beautiful horses in Shingle Springs against the backdrop of the foothills. And the yellow aspen leaves reflected in Wrights Lake made the perfect setting for a photograph of Luna. As a professional pet photographer, I look at each setting to bring out its natural beauty and to highlight my subjects. However, none of what I do would be possible without my wonderful clients and supporters, so to all of you, I say THANK YOU, and I look forward to creating many more images in 2016!
