Sassie & Dr B

I met two wonderful dogs, Sassie and Dr B, at a recent pet portrait session.  Sassie is an energetic Australian Shepherd mix who loves agility and frisbees; she’s even going to start herding trials.  dog_frisbee_pet_portraits_warrenton_va

Sassie loved to pose and was the perfect model.  dog_pet_portrait_warrenton_va

This was a best of both worlds session that included studio and outdoor photos.

Dr. B is an older Lab mix who isn’t crazy about having his photo taken and his owner was concerned that he would be ‘unphotogenic’.  I think he looks beautiful, don’t you?dog_portrait_warrenton_va

I especially love him with his owner’s fabulous boots!dog_boot_pet_photography_northern_va

Warrenton Horse Show

The Warrenton Horse Show is a USEF Heritage Competition and is one of the most fun recognized hunter shows in the area. Thoroughbreds are near and dear to my heart and there is a Thoroughbred division.

Ranier won the Sallie Wheeler National Hunter Breeding Championship for the second time.

An anonymous donor gives money to the Fauquier SPCA based on the number of points riders score. So Be It (another TB!) won and Mary Todd accepts the check for the SPCA.fauquier_spca_hunter_classic_warrenton_horse_show

Pets get to enjoy the show too.

Don’t forget, if you’d like your own personal paparazzi at your next horse show, drop me a line. I’ll get great shots of your preparations, warm up, performance and hugs from your friends.
