A high elevation day …

The perfect brooding moody sky, the feel of late summer early fall, mushy earth from a recent rain, not a sign of another person, and a complete lack of oxygen while hiking at 10,000 feet was exactly what we needed today. Sweater on, bag filled with food, toys, leashes, and harness, and off we went….

A Midwinters Day Dream

Sometimes you just need to get out, go for a walk, breathe clean perfect air, and appreciate the silence. And sometimes you need to do it all together, with the ones you love. Me, my dogs and children have been working pretty steadily on designing and testing matches for our World Treibball League, re-writing curriculum for our puppy…

Rhumb & Story – winter time

The snow is here in the mountains, and my favorite time of year is right now, especially when it comes to photographing my dogs. We all love to be outside working, but there is something magical and challenging about being able to capture them, and light, and moving snow, and a feeling of sorts. Rhumb…

A Story kind of day …

Sometimes I just like to sit and take photos of my dogs. They do their thing, and I just watch. Today out by our pond, my dog Story stopped on the other side of the fountain and was watching me watching him. … And I fell in love all over again… Nancy

lavender & dogs

It was an early morning in the gardens, and too pretty of a moment to not stop and take some photos. I have plants in various stages of everything, this is my favorite time. Even when a plant is done blooming, there is still so much beauty there, like my red Oriental Poppy. I might like this…

Victor & ‘Hot’ Chocolate

I love when I have the chance to go and spend an hour or two photographing and visiting with some of my ranch clients.  Being with working dogs in their element is good for the heart and soul. There is no other way to describe it than a feeling of complete. I haven’t seen Victor…

snowball treibball

Well, it was a treibball afternoon in the yard. My husband and kids love this game with the dogs. While they were playing away, I decided to try some ‘moving action shots’. The light was kind of funky, it was snowing pretty good, and the wind was strong, but I love the motion… my B…

bits and pieces of my dogs …

OK, I’m still getting use to this fabulous camera my friend gave me. I’m not use to so many options, but the cool thing is that it is giving me the opportunity to, (1) learn more about photography, (2) take the photos I see in my head but have never been able to capture, (3)…

Sunday at the Dog Gym …

I love my Sundays. It’s the only day where we have things going all day long, 8-10 hours straight, at the Gym. Usually I have 3 hours here, and four hours there, a break, and then late evenings with classes. But Sundays are straight thru and I just love them! Open gym, privates, play dates,…

the super models of snow

OK, we had the most amazing snow last night, over 12 inches at our home. Big luscious flakes! And this morning, blue bird skies and diamond sparkle snow. The sun gods were shining on my dogs while we were out working this morning. I had so much fun playing and photographing them! My favorite… My…
