Nightly Routine on the Upper West Side

A nightly routine is a beautiful thing for a child to have with her parents. I was honored to witness this family’s special time with their daughter as they closed out the evening.

Happy Bolognese Dog with His Humans

I love seeing how happy dogs get when they’re around their humans. Lexus was no exception! I met everyone for a PAWS NY session, and it was quite clear that this dog lives a good life.

Excited Service Dog for PAWS NY

This is the third year I’ve worked with PAWS NY to help them put together a calendar for one of their fundraisers. It’s fun to be able to travel to different parts of city and meet all the lovely pets, clients, and volunteers. Trudy, the sweet service dog, was my first session earlier this spring. I met the volunteer outside the building, and was told that Trudy loved to greet him by jumping up the moment she was let out the door. She did not disappoint!

The relationship between animals and kids can be so special. Plus, I find it great that a small child is walking a dog that’s almost as tall as her.

A small mid-walk photo session was requested. How could I say no to this face?

There’s not a lot of serenity in their family walks, which makes them all the more fun.

This guy was done with shopping at this point, but his sister wanted to help out mom a little more.

Their favorite bakery – a perfect way to wrap up a walk! The reflection on the right is dad looking in, as he had remained outside with the dog.

An Afternoon at Home on the UWS

From the sweet & tender moments, to racing loudly around the apartment, life at home with a kid is never dull.
