Two baby pygmy goats joined a loving 4-H family – and we were beyond blessed to enjoy their sweet and playful company. They were so tiny and we were surprised at how light they were to hold….. almost like they were full of air, not nearly as dense in weight as a puppy would be of the same size. As Chad was shooting one of them kept jumping up on his back as light as a feather barely feeling his little hooves. One of them decided to have a quick nap during the shoot and his little buddy just laid down and hung out, waiting for him to wake up again. These kids are going to have so much fun with their new goats and you can tell just how much they love them already. If you love animals like we do, contact us for your unique photoshoot today!
Elijah’s story is a miracle. Andi was hiking up a Phoenix mountain and had reached the summit when she was confronted by a pit-bull mix. She was terrified due to a past experience….. however, she quickly noticed that this dog was brutally injured. He was bleeding from gun shots! Her instincts overcame her fear and she carried this 47 pound dog ALL the way back down the mountain by herself. It took about an hour and by the end he was barely moving. She called for medical help from AHS and her husband. After much care Elijah survived! Rather ironically, that very week fell the national Pit Bull Awareness Day. News crews and magazines flew across to country to interview their family and spread news about this amazing story. > CNN article here “Dog’s best friend: Woman Carries Wounded Pit Bull Down Mountain” > AZ Humane Society article “Good Samaritan Carries Shot 47-pound Pit Bull Down Arizona Mountain They adopted him and called him ‘Elijah’ and is a beloved family member along with their other dogs. As if that wasn’t amazing enough – years later, Andi’s husband Jason had been increasingly feeling the calling to work with rescues and AHS more deeply. His dream of […]
We saw photos on Facebook of our friend Tracy’s rescue pup Jax after he was rescued from a hideously abusive situation. Jax was saved from being euthanized in December by E-List Angels and have been fostered by Tracy and her family since then. He needed a lot of love and 3-days of medical care in the animal hospital. It was suspected that Jax had been either attacked by dogs, possibly cats or other animals, perhaps sadly as a puppy entering the fighting dog world – maybe a ‘bait dog.’ Nobody knows for sure. What we can see is that poor Jax was literally covered in wounds and bite marks. We knew we just had to help in some small way!!! Jax is an overcomer with a heart bursting with love. You will see on his face tons of little white fur spots – these were at one time bite marks. They are a testimony of his strength and will to live. This 45 lb. lab/pitt mix is a S W E E T H E A R T !! He loves laps, doesn’t bark hardly ever Tracy says (in our session, he didn’t bark either……….) he immediately greets and loves on every person […]
What a great time we had with the J family at the McDowell Sonoran Preserve! They brought along their giant Golden Doodle Thor – what a show stealer! LOVE HIM! They asked if they could bring their dog and we said – of course !! We absolutely love pets of any kind. We have two dogs and know that pets are truly a part of our family. This setting was gorgeous and just what they were looking for to showcase to their family in the North West from where they have recently moved from. Being from that area ourselves many years ago we know….. nothing is more different than the evergreen state than Arizona! The boys were relaxed and had fun, the love you see for their dog – and parents – is just beautiful. Here are a sampling of images from our session with this sweet and fun family.
We love dogs – here are some fun shots of these two lovable basenjis – Tiki and Hana. Tiki was very food motivated during the shoot; while Hana loved to relax and lay down on the job. She seems to love having her photo taken. 🙂 If you would love to schedule a photo shoot for your pet, furry, feathered or otherwise… give us a shout!
