My small but BIG surprise.....

The house was much too quiet after Griffon was gone .......

May I introduce to you: FRANCESCA ~ a.k.a. "FRANKIE"

You can see our sweet boy "GRIFFON"  in the latest issue of Style At Home.  He was the life of the party and will forever be missed by everyone that met him.

A ruff time.

With a heavy heart, I'm sad to say that Griffon, my just shy of 11 year old dog passed away last weekend.   It's been a very tough few days, trying to get over the fact that he's not clomping around the house or lying by the fireplace beside us.  He will forever be in our hearts and I want to thank you for all of your well wishes, it means a lot. On the flip side, work was beckoning and yes, I had to post pone some shoots in order to get my head straight but as I have always said, I love my job.   I'm very thankful that I was able to shift my thoughts away  just for a little while to shoot some beautiful spaces.

Always nice to shoot for Zoe Pawlak.  Her paintings are absolutely stunning ....... this one found a good home.  FYI, Zoe has an exhibition on this Thursday, January 24th 605-55 Water Street.

A beautiful space always puts a smile on my face.  Here is a peek into a shoot I did for Kirk Talent, designed by Lesa Kirk & Shannon Powell.

I don't normally get too personal on my blog posts but I am slightly side tracked this week.  Our dog Griffon has been really sick lately and we've been informed by our vet that we have only a short time left with him.  Yes, he's just a dog but he's a BIG part of our family and has been for almost 11 years.  He'll be going into surgery this week and then if we're lucky, we'll have him for a few more months, we hope. Please say a little wish for him.
