In honor of Mother's Day this Sunday, we wanted to give a "BARK"out to all the dog moms in the world! We forget that pets can be kids too. So whether two-legged or four-legged, Mother's Day should celebrate all the moms who love and support their kids.

In honor of the American Humane Association's Adopt-a-Cat-Month, here are two FURociously cute felines to inspire you to give a loving home to a cat in need. According to the ASPCA, a staggering 3.4 million cats enter shelters every year in the U.S. This number could be diminished if we all opened our hearts to a cat. They are amazingly easy to give a good home to as they can be happy in small spaces like apartments. So don't get discouraged, we can all adopt. They just need food, water and plenty of LOVE! Might as well adopt two too! Like Kishore who I photographed with his two sweethearts, Moss and Yuri.
Meet Luke. He loves playtime with his mom and dad. He loves his stuffed animals, which double as chew toys for him to ultimately destroy. He absolutely LOVES giving people kisses on the cheek and of course, getting his picture taken. I got the opportunity to photograph this handsome guy in his natural habitat: His loving home
Curly hair, don't care! Take a peek at Japsar, a lovable poodle with a big personality. His tongue was out and his tail was wagging away throughout our entire shoot.
A girl and her dogs! These sweethearts are the light of her life. It was so cool to be able to photograph this trio and their mom in their own backyard. I got to capture them in their happy place at their most comfortable which shows through these sweet images!
On a sunny afternoon in Santa Barbara, Anabelle, her person Holly and yours truly took a walk amongst the live oaks for a photoshoot. These ladies know sure know how smile!
I joined the cutest little terrier Bob and his people on an adventure to a San Francisco park. With plenty of green grass to play on, it was the perfect backdrop for a doggie photoshoot!
I had an absolute blast with Bella the Frenchie. She was all smiles and ready for her close-up during this studio shoot. Indoor photoshoots are the perfect location to let a pooch's personality shine!
Children and pets are two of the most intriguing subjects to photograph and the results are always so special. This German Shepherd, Elvis, loves his two boys so much and they sure love him. He is their protector, playmate and cuddle bug. The bond between pets and their people, well pets and their little people is unbreakable!
Euro, the perfect name for this Bichon Frise. This pup knows how to smile with his eyes like a French supermodel. So much fun photographing this lovely little family!
This guy may look intimidating walking down the street, but as soon as he greets you with a big 'ole kiss on the cheek you know he wouldn't hurt a fly. Chip the Doberman is a big hunk of love with an even bigger heart! He got his name from his dad who is a CHP officer. There used to be a TV show titled "CHiP's" in the early 80's. It followed to CHP motorcycle officers on their adventures on the highways of California. I fell in love with Chip and his family during our photoshoot at my studio in San Francisco!
I joined Baxter and his people for an adventure to the Wilcox Preserve in Santa Barbara. The Wilcox Preserve is the perfect doggie friendly spot for an afternoon walk, not to mention it is a beautiful back drop for a photoshoot. The golden hour sunset light peeks through the groves of Eucalyptus trees gorgeously!
Smiles for days! These two Pomeranian pups brought the biggest smile to my face with their exuding happiness. These brothers were up for anything, their people and I put them through. They wore their costumes (sunglasses) and posed with their props like champs!
Dogs are family and these images exemplify this perfectly. Photographing this trio warmed my heart seeing the love they share for one another. I am so glad to have had the opportunity to capture this adorable little family!
Look at that face! Daisy the Basset Hound is one of the cutest pups I think I have ever photographed. She has such a funny personality, running around like a wild woman during our photoshoot. From chewing on her owner's sneakers to making the funniest faces for the camera she was an absolute joy to capture!
Siblings can be our longest lasting and most meaningful relationships in life, animal siblings being no different. This duo are each others best friends, besides their loving people. I have always felt that having two dogs in the same home is so beneficial for the pooches happiness. They keep each other company when us humans are at work, they are each others play buddies when it's time to have fun, they are partners-in-crime (the only downside is the mischief they get into together). With Cassidy and Sundance two is definitely better than one!
Gotta love pets and their people! Loved photographing Louise and her loving owner!
Butters, the cutest bull dog I think I have ever seen!
Frenchies Kayla and Kipp!
The best gift you can give in this world is love. And dogs offer unconditional love. Therefore the best gift you can actually give, is a dog. Also life is just simply better when these four-legged sweethearts are apart of our families, our packs. I got the chance to shoot this fur-kid and his dad to give as an anniversary gift to Harry's mom!
