It’s FRIDAY!!!!  Everybody say hallelujer to putting this week behind us and moving forward.  What are you plans for the weekend?  How about flopping down on your belly and chilling out, ideally with a cuddly companion (human or furry) next to you.  Of course there are always movies and sporting events you could watch BUT there is also this thing called….talking.  [retro, right?]  There’s a lot going on in the world, and there’s no time lie the present to unplug and truly connect with the ones you love in a real way, face to face and heart to heart.  for an excellent demonstration of flopping and chilling I give you Brandi and Chico.  Nice technique, you guys!  this sweet boy is available for adoption through Canine Cellmates.  Find out more about Chico and other adoptable dogs at https://www.caninecellmates.org/

Andy’s mom (my friend Jenna) stopped by today to bring him in for a holiday portrait, and he did great. He’d just had a bath and looked mighty handsome. I’m opening up a few additional spots this weekend for holiday portraits….. give me a shout if you’d like to drop by. We have a few slots Saturday and a few Sunday afternoon. The holiday package is $75 for the shoot and two high res digital images you can use for prints or holiday cards. You can reach the studio at nina@ninaparkerphotography.com or 770-330-5414

Hope you and yours had a FAB time the last few days. There are really tough things happening in the news, but still so much to be thankful for. My plan is to keep an attitude of gratitude going through the holiday season and into the new year. It helps to have great people in your circle who are positive, give back, and just are all around nice humans. And have dogs, of course! Case in point: Alison, who is active in pet rescue and organizes a yearly event called Marietta Muttro Fashion Show. Loved this one from her recent shoot with her rescue dogs. ⠀

Thankful. THRILLED. Found out that Stevie, a very special girl and favorite of mine, now has a new home. A big-hearted little girl decided to adopt a dog for her birthday, and on Saturday they spotted Stevie at Petsmart. Love at first sight. Now this gentle dog has a human sister to adore and a doting family to cherish her. There is indeed so much to be thankful for. Sending out heartfelt wishes to you and yours to enjoy this holiday of gratitude, and praying for peace for all the lonely and hurting souls still looking for their place in this world.⠀homelesspets_atlantadogphotographer_ninaparker_5473

♬”It’s beginning to look a lot like……..”♬, well, you know the rest. It may not be a winter wonderland yet here in Atlanta but I was in the mood. So I converted this recent portrait of Darcy from fall to ‘Frozen’ via some post processing magic. Princess Elsa’s got nothing on this adorable little Chihuahua. Can’t wait for her Mom to receive her prints. Give us a shout at the studio if you’d like something similar for your pet without a trip up North!⠀
