National Train Your Dog Month

January is National Train Your Dog Month! While Mark is happy to photograph dogs of all obedience levels, having a well behaved dog can make a huge difference for the day-to-day life with your family. We've had the privilege of working with several dog trainers in the Denver area over the past 9 years. We have a dog with some behavioral issues and have tried out multiple trainers to find the right fit for both us and his issues. We stumbled upon Matt Clark and he was incredible. He understood the issues we were facing and gave us an action plan and the confidence to work through our problems with our little guy. 

Fast forward a few years and we added a rescue dog to our family to be a companion to our dog with issues. We were doing more off-leash hiking and wanted to get our dogs e-collar trained. We found Kris Mavis and this is one area she specializes in. We were actually surprised at how quickly we were able to e-collar train our dogs with Kris's input and training. She offers all levels of dog training from puppy obedience all the way up through more advanced skills.

Mark had the privilege of photographing Kris's two amazing dogs and they were some of the easiest dogs he's ever worked with!

Record February Snow for Denver

With the string of recent snow storms, Denver has broken the previous 103 year old record for the snowfall in February. While not everyone has been excited about the snow, our dogs have been loving it! Here's a fun shot of Duncan out playing with one of his favorite toys in the snow. He'd be a happy dog if it snowed every day! We hope that you have found a way to have fun in the snow, too.

Friendship comes in all sizes!

Meet Rex, the Great Dane puppy, and Weebles, the Shih Tzu puppy, who have recently become best dog friends since being rescued by Life is Better Rescue and they came in for a puppy photography session last week. Despite their huge size difference, they have become pals and spend their days playing with each other in their foster home. What makes them even more special is that both puppies are special needs dogs. Rex is a tripod and Weebles has a neurological disorder that makes life very wobbly for her. Even with these added challenges, Mark was able to get some great portraits of these dogs for the rescue.


Dogs are Family, too!

Families come in all shapes and sizes! While we photograph a lot of families with their children, we also have a lot of clients who have fur kids instead of or in addition to human kids. This family just added a new little brother to their family and came in for a new family portrait of their dog kids. We think the puppy is extra cute, but what a fun looking bunch this is! 

If you have a special four legged family member, be sure to consider bringing them in for a professional pet photography session with Mark. He works with all ages, dog breeds and obedience levels and will capture something truly special just for you.
