This cute little teddy bear looking Yorkie is Tai Jee Prince. Tai Jee is Prince in Chinese (words from old Chinese Royal Emperor). He was named Tai Jee-Prince because he is a real prince in his family, very spoiled and loved every minute of his life. Tai Jee is a very adorable and sweet puppy. I first met him and his owner Claire at the New York Halloween Dog parade in 2013. He was dressed as Batman and I couldn’t cope with his little chubby belly popping out of his costume that day. It was wonderful to see them both again at this year’s Parade, dressed as a Japanese Samurai and geisha. Claire told me she had her heart set on a portrait shoot down at Jane’s Carousel under the Brooklyn Bridge in Dumbo, so after a lot of rescheduling due to rain, cold and even snow. We finally got to create some fun, stylish images of Tai Jee Prince and Claire to treasure forever.

These 3 are just wonderful to watch together. Even though Rosie & Barkley tower above and weigh 10 times more than Chet, they are best of friends. Rosie 9 years is a fairly average size for a Newfoundland weighing in at 130 pounds. Though Barkley aged 6 years tends to tip the scales at 180 pounds. I love being able to show the love and friendship between children and animals, seeing Chet take the leashes and walk these two big beautiful Newfies down a typical suburban Brooklyn street, makes every passer by smile. As you can see from these fun black & white portraits of them, they bring lots of joy to the whole family.

This years 24th Annual Halloween Dog Parade in Tompkins Square was a huge success once again. 100’s of people and their pets really went all out with such creative, colorful costumes. Some scary, some cute and all really really creative. The crowd pleasers were definitely, Mamma Biscuit as Stevie Nicks at the top. Khaleesi and Jon Snow with there 3 baby Chihuahua/Dragons. The winners being the RMS Titanic with Rose, Jack and the captains. Some of my personal favorites being Miss Vixen as Pugcasso, the little baby bulldog named Pork Chop, dressed as the sweetest squishy pumpkin you have ever seen. Plus the brave kitty called Taco, who dressed up as a puppy and seemed to go successfully unnoticed by all the other pups on the day. Being a dog photographer, you can imagine how much I loved being able to capture all the little furry faces waiting for their turn to parade around the ring. If I did take your dogs photo on the day, please feel free to email me for your image. I tried to get as many up on the blog as I could, but I had to try and keep it under control. ha ha!
Happy Halloween! 🙂

Lacey Playing dress ups
Little Miss Lacey, LOVES to dress up. I have never meet a dog that gets this excited about clothes. I have met dogs that will tolerate it, but as you can see by the video she is totally flipping out about choosing an outfit for the day. Cutest thing ever! She is a lady about town and absolutely loves getting out and about in her furry fashion. She loves any attention, compliments, sleeping in, cuddling, being held, walks, running around, eating, going shopping, traveling (planes, trains, automobiles, she does it all), the wind in her hair, laying in the sun (especially at the beach or floating on a raft in the pool- as long as she doesn’t get wet!) Just your typical girl! She hates sneezing and will run to attack an obnoxious sneezer. She maybe small, but she has one of the biggest personalities I have ever seen in a dog! I can’t wait to she what she chooses to wear next!

Miss Piggy has put up with a lot over her nine years. She has faced multiple cancer scares and surgeries and has conquered them all like the strong girl she is.
The scars make her tough, but she always keeps her amazing spirit! AND after all of that, she still loves going to vet for all of the attention. Piggy also puts up with a lot from her Mummy who thinks it’s funny to dress her up at Halloween. She’s been Minnie Mouse, Little Red Riding Hood, Super Piggy, a jester, a Playboy Bunny, a biker chick and a judge. I wonder what she will be this year. Piggy and her Mommy have been fostering a Mumma pug that was rescued from a hoarding situation with a litter of pups. Most of the pups have found their forever homes already, except for little Miss Sassy here, sassy is her temporary name that has just stuck because of her VERY sassy nature. Sassy is now 3 months old and is still waiting for a home, just like her Mumma. Mumma pug is such a sweet gentle lady, very quiet and no fuss at all, she has really started to come out of her shell since having her babies and being in a loving foster home with Piggy. Mumma has even begun playing with Piggy and Sassy, just like a normal dog should. It would be so great if they could stay together and find a forever home that would continue to nurture and give love just like her wonderful foster family has done. If you know anyone that could be a good fit for these two black beauties, please feel free to share and get the word out there, that they are ready to love and be loved by someone special.

This handsome blonde boy is Rusty and he is sweet, playful, loving and even a bit cheeky too. Rusty was desperately wanted by Sarah the second youngest of the 4 girls in his family. She picked him out of the litter and waited till he was old enough to come home. After 2 weeks of sleepless nights she sold him back to her dad for $1 and he has been dad’s boy ever since. He also gets along great with his 3 cat siblings and loves walks on the beach with his dad. Though Rusty does have a slight Kleptomaniac issue, he tends to collect shoes, bra’s and even underwear from everyones bedrooms. Then he leaves the items out on display, waiting till someone discovers him, because he loves being chased around the house. He really is just a big ute fluff ball of happiness.

This little man is Beau and he really is the sweetest little pup. He is one on the most well behaved puppies I have ever met, seriously chilled.
I met him at the Dogue Manly store and the first thing that made me absolutely fall in love with him was his but wiggling. It wiggles when you say hello,
it wiggles when he gets a treat, basically it wiggles every time he is excited. He was the perfect model, we took him down to Kirribilli to get all the iconic Sydney harbor backgrounds and he just sat and posed like he did that kind of thing every day. Though he did take bit of convincing to keep walking around, as he is not a fan of walking in general. After meeting Beau I am seriously leaning towards getting a Frenchie now.

As I pack up AGAIN and prepare to leave Sydney today, I feel so grateful to have such amazing friends and family here in this stunning city of Sydney.
I have loved spending time with everyone and photographing lots of new people and puppies, like this beautiful little baby boy Beau. Also I get such a buzz out of shooting many of my past clients here, it is such an honor to see and capture your families as they grow. It is to say goodbye to loved ones, but I am excited to keep moving forward and finding new furry friends to photograph in new cities. Farewell Sydney!

I am in Hong Kong again this week and I am finally be able to share a sneak peak from Cotton Candy’s latest collection.
I shot this look book for her back in April and now we are delighted to be seeing it on the catwalks at Hong Kong’s fashion week.
From simple inspired head wear, to really pushing the boundaries and totally metamorphosing into whole other species, Cotton Candy’s new collection does not disappoint. Even though some critics said they were hoping to see more updated styles from her eye wear collection, most dogs agree that her classic simple frames are timeless and love that she has stayed true to her brand. In this latests ready to wear collection, Cotton Candy insists on modeling each outfit herself. To show that even with extra fur than most, the garments still look chic and is totally on trend.
