What Incredible Pet Parents Look Like

I have had the distinct pleasure of meeting some of the coolest people over the last 5 years.

And they all have stories.

Meet Paula & Munchkie.

They first came in for portraits in 2011. And we had a blast.

Paula & Shawn own a real estate company. Their portraits were used to create fun greeting cards & ads that showed up in the most unexpected places.

One thing was clear. They loved animals. Especially Munchkie.

The next year we had fun creating images for holiday & birthday cards to send to their clients.

What we see as perfectly normal i.e. photos with our pets, I’m learning is quite extraordinary to many people.

Then I got to meet the rest of the family.

But the star of the show. Again.

Their dogs are their world.

Their children with 4 legs.

Adopted all of them. They know lives need saving & they do their part.

Magical happy living.

She came into their lives for very specific reasons.

Her mission was complete. Soon after this photoshoot.

Rest In Peace Munchkie.


Bringing you these dog stories takes precious time and resources. It's important to me, and I'll do it no matter what. But your small donation — even $1 or $2 — goes a long way toward helping me maintain my website and continue to invest my time and energy into helping give voice to these animals who so desperately need one.
