Aries the Boxer | Parrish dog photography

Back in January I got to photograph a big ball of Boxer energy named Aries! He was such a fun, goofy guy! Aries is your classic Boxer–bursting with energy, not particularly graceful, and very drooly (with a super long tongue!). I loved playing with him in his spacious backyard and capturing his hilarious personality. While there was a lot of frisbee and ball fetching, Aries did have his calm moments to recharge, and those were perfect windows of time for detail shots. His big brown eyes and cute Boxer ears were just made to be zoomed in on!

Sadly, Aries’ big sister passed away not long before his photo shoot, so we took some special images to remember her and a previous Boxer, using their old collars and leashes. But just after his session, Aries’ family took in a senior Boxer named Gretchen as a foster. Well, she became a foster failure! I can’t think of a better home for her to be in. She had her own photo session after her adoption, and I’ll be doing a separate blog post dedicated to her soon. I can’t wait to share her with you, she’s a sweet, sweet old girl.

Now for the big, goofy, and handsome Aries! Enjoy!

8 Years with Buddy

Yesterday, March 9th, marked eight years of life with Buddy. Eight years of hugs, eight years of kisses, eight years of walks, eight years of naps on the couch, eight years of love. I’m forever grateful than this incredible dog wandered into our backyard eight years ago. He is a gift from God–a wonderful blessing covered in fur! I can’t imagine life without him. My Budman is my best friend, my protector, my confidant, and my heart dog. My best, best Buddy. I love you more every single day, Bud.

You can read Buddy’s full story here, written in 2009. It’s a little bit long, but it will tell you how Buddy came into my life. It still amazes me!

Here are Buddy’s “birthday/anniversary” photos. I photographed him in his favorite place, on the couch! Buddy has always been a couch potato, but he is spending more time on the couch than ever as he ages. It’s his favorite thing…

Talia the Whippet | Tampa dog photography

Last month I got to photograph one of the cutest, silliest, and most well-behaved puppies that I’ve ever met! Talia is a leggy, muscular four-month-old Whippet puppy who loves to run, play, and show off her wonky ear styles. She can also add expert model to her list of talents! I still can’t believe how easy she was to photograph. I think she may have watched some of those top model shows before her session! Talia showed off her serious stare, her insane ears, and her energetic leaps. The Greyhound and Whippet breeds are so much fun to photograph–their build is perfect for artsy abstract images and their profile is so elegant. Talia certainly did not disappoint! I can’t wait to photograph her again when she’s all grown up, although I will certainly miss those crazy puppy ears. They are so entertaining!

And without further ado, here she is, the lovely Miss Talia…
