I might have mentioned how much I love family portrait sessions, but it is worth repeating. There is no time like the present to get a family portrait session! Katie Nesbitt photographed her friends Tina and Mo and their Boston Terrier Rocco last fall.
From Katie: “Tina is a graphic designer that I’ve become friends with after connecting online and collaborating on a few projects together. She and her husband Mo live in Arlington, Va with their ADORABLE (and super well behaved) Boston Terrier, Rocco.”
From Tina: “This adorable purebred Boston Terrier joined our family when he was merely nine weeks old and will celebrate his third birthday on June 25! He’s not a rescue but it was definitely love at first sight. He is smart, social, obedient, fun-loving, sweet, and super cute to boot! My husband and I cherish our moments with this little dude. He is definitely our baby. Rocco (nicknamed “Stinkies”) is a character. He loves to walk, run, play fetch, snuggle, and sunbathing in the grass is his all-time favorite thing to do. He can potty, sit, stay, fetch, loves to give kisses and paw on command. Our snuggle times with him are the best. Rocco is a happy dog with a great personality. We are very lucky to have him in our lives.”

It can be a challenge to have a beautiful home and pets at the same time. I candidly admit that it is one of my struggles. My cat has turned our arm chair into an eyesore, and one of my dogs sheds frequently on my best sofa. From food dishes to pet hairs, there are constant (and not necessarily attractive) reminders that we have animals. However, some people manage to have gorgeous homes and pets at the same time. Lifestyle and interior photographer, Bethany Nauert, frequently photographs homes that are architectural and designer dreams complete with well loved dogs.

From Anjani: “This set is shot at Seattle’s Magnuson Park, a huge urban park which enrobes a sprawling, 9 acre off-leash area for dogs, with a lovely, fenced stroll to Lake Washington, the only beach allowing dogs within the city limits. The winding trail is sometimes overseen by a pair of nesting bald eagles who soar overhead on the to their nest on the water’s edge. The dog park also includes an inner fenced area for ‘small and shy dogs.’ Of course, no small dog thinks they are anything but terribly fierce, but they do seem to love it.
On this January day, dogs across Seattle had all been cooped up inside for weeks enduring Seattle’s grey winter. This afternoon was chilly and its amber lighting was perfect for a few playful puppies and one happy photographer.
Henry’s a huge fan of small children, big cats, and fierce female dogs, who light him up more than biscuits.”

Today, June 11th is Just One Day. On any normal day thousands of animals in shelters might be euthanized due in large part to a lack of space in the shelter. But today, some of those shelters have pledged to be a No Kill Shelter, even if it is for just one day, which can make the difference between life and death for some adoptable pets. If you are considering adopting or fostering a new pet, please go to your local shelter today! Many shelters are waiving or discounting adoption fees in an attempt to save more pets.
Today’s adoptable dog is an adorable Pit bull named Duncan who was photographed (with his foster family) by Jess from Chocolate Moose Images. Duncan was pulled from animal control by Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue. If it weren’t for the Rescue, Duncan might have been slated for the euthanasia list.
From Jess: “Duncan and he is pretty amazing. He is just over 1 year old and so well behaved it’s incredible. His foster family includes 3 young children and another pittie so he clearly gets along well with a variety of folks. He knows a lot of commands and LOVES treats.”
From Duncan: ”Hi!! My name is Duncan. I know what you’re thinking – I look like a Duncan. I get that a lot! I also hear people say how cute my nose is. I am a little over a year old and quite the gentleman. I LOVE kids, playing tug of war, walking, cuddling and playing with my foster sister. She is great!! I have a whole bag of tricks that I’d love to show you if you have the right treat. If I was to describe myself as a color I would have to say yellow because I’m always so happy!”
I love that Duncan is being fostered by a whole family! You can see what a great dog he is in these photos. Big cheers to Duncan’s foster parents for not only helping Duncan, but for raising three great animal advocates!
You can read more about Duncan on his Petfinder listing. Duncan is currently available through the Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. As a general rule, the organization only adopts within Minnesota, however if someone is interested they can certainly email to inquire if an exception can be made.

It is easy to see why Izzie is the pride and joy of Jenna and Brian. They made sure to include her in their lovely engagement photography session with Leo Timoshuk.
From Jenna: “Our dog’s name is Izzie. She’s a 4-year old mini Labradoodle. We got her when we first started dating – Brian’s parents actually picked her out for us in Colorado and we flew out together to get her from Colorado and brought her back to Hoboken, New Jersey where we were living at the time. We spent a week out there touring the state and getting to know Izzie and then brought her home. She lived with Brian for about 6 months (we weren’t living together at the time). She would come stay at my place on occasion (she had a kennel at my house, etc.). We moved in together about 6 months later, so she’s really been our dog her whole life.
If this family looks familiar to you it is probably because they were also featured on Style Me Pretty.
