Zeus & Ziggy

Zeus and Ziggy are a sweet pair who live right on Lake Washington. The day of our shoot the weather was supposed to be really wet, but the sun came out and it ended up being beautiful. I was so happy about this because this particular shoot has so much meaning. Read on and you’ll see why.

I love these dogs, and loved this shoot! Zeus-bigger dog- is a full pitbull and Ziggy-smaller dog- is a Staffordshire- I think of the English variety. Ziggy is all about her ball and playtime, and Zeus just wants to snuggle and get love. They are the *sweetest*. Below: It’s easy to get dogs to follow you when you have stinky treats in your hand. lol


Ziggy reminds me of Fergie in that she is ALL about play.



The reason why this shoot was so important is because Zeus, the big handsome boy, has terminal cancer, and this was most likely his only chance to get professional photos taken. This was a gift for Ziggy’s dad, a very special gift from his sister. You can just feel the love between Zeus and his dad in the following photos.



Crazy silly dogs. Zeus & Ziggy love to romp and play and have fun, and they get along smashingly.



Oof! Being a dog is so ruff….



Hope you enjoyed Zeus & Ziggy! Gene & Jessica thanks for the fun shoot and giving me the opportunity to work with your sweet dogs. 🙂

  1. I loved this set when it posted a few weeks ago! Seeing it again and knowing the reason for it fills my heart! Your blog always seems to tug at my emotions…

  2. I kind of did the same thing yesterday. My sister’s dog has cancer and is terminal also. I am nowhere near a professional photographer…but I play with it, and enjoy it. I admire your work. 🙂

  3. Everytime I see a blog post about a poorly dog I can’t help but feel really sad but it’s such a beautiful thing you get to do and I absolutely love your work.
