Meet Jack

Jack's story:  Two doctors living in NYC owned him and because he did not get enough exercise and attention, he barked a lot.  They actually took him to a kill shelter at four years old, but luckily a family was able to foster him, so he would not be put down.  Then his Forever Family came along and because of them, he is loved by a bunch of kids and gets along with everyone . he is a very mellow eight year old pup and not a barker!

Our grand-daughter , Mazie, just turned three, and although she gave us a run for our money in the studio, we managed to create an album full of portraits--as she grows older, we will always look back to remember this  significant time in her young life.

This handsome young man was 2 years old when we started photographing him!  He visits our studio every March, for his yearly portrait.  His parents have heirloom portraits of their son that not only celebrate his birthday, but continue to remind them of how he has grown and matured through the years.............

Happy Mother's Day

This Mom and Dad waited years to be able to get her grown sons together for a portrait.  She finally made it happen before one of them was moving to Israel the following week!

Now she has an heirloom portrait on her wall and an unforgettable memory that will be important for generations to come!

Happy Birthday

This cutie-pie has been a visitor to our studio every year since she was a small toddler.  We enjoy her red curls and adorable smile and look forward to see how she has grown and matured when she arrives during her birthday month..........

Adopted and Loved

This smiling pup was adopted last year by a most loving family who had already adopted a dog two years ago from Puerto Rico.  They decided to go local this time and then they fell in love with her when they were just 'looking'.  She is still a puppy, but is in training to be a therapy dog, as her personality is loving and gentle.  So just like she was given a chance, she will give back working with people who are in need of some extra comfort in their lives.

Puppy Love

These darling pups came to their new family terrified because of the conditions in which they had been living.  They are now bonded with their owners and while still shy around strangers, are beginning to relax and come out of their shells.  The consistency and love they are now receiving show what can happen when you give the time and effort. 

If you are looking for a dog or cat to add to the family, please feel free to get in touch with me and I will volunteer my time and energy to help you adopt!

We have loved this family since they came to us when their daughter was born.  They return several times a year for updates and holiday cards and portraits.  The children are sweeties and we have such a good time with them in the studio.  It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of their lives and watch them grow.  Jane and I feel like honorary grandparents!

Adopt, Do Not Shop

I am not sure if you know, but black dogs are the most overlooked in shelters because they do not show as well under the less than ideal lighting conditions in shelters.  Well, Hailey's mama did not let that stand in her way and adopted this well-behaved cutie.  Adopt, Do Not Shop is the credo for all shelters.  And I will assist anyone who would like to adopt. Just call or e-mail and I will dedicate myself to helping you find a new family member!

Capture The Moments of Life!!

Lucky Pup

There are many blind dogs available for adoption and most people would not even consider this an option.  But Ziggy was a lucky pup, because his family thinks blind dogs are amazing and they continue to help others whose dogs are in the same situation through illness or birth.  Hooray for heroes like this!

Have Fun Being ONE!

Furry Friends

These three pups were all adopted when they were brought to a kill shelter (at different times) because they were old or sick and their owners no longer wanted to deal with them.  Rbari (Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge, Inc--a no-kill shelter), where I volunteer, rescued them, and they all found a forever home with a staff member who takes elderly dogs in and gives them an amazing life for whatever time they have left. She has a most generous heart for all creatures large and small...........
