Chops Photography bio picture
  • Welcome to Chops Photography! I have been photographing pets since 2005 and professionally since 2009. I love capturing the spirit of animals and being able to offer people memories of their best friends. I specialize in pet photography, but also enjoy shooting sports and events.

Adorable puppies Annabel and Verona were so much fun to work with. Energy for days, and so great together, rolling each other in the tall grass, investigating everything. I could have watched them play all day.

Both of these girls are being fostered by my friend Laurie through On Angel’s Wings, a wonderful rescue in Crystal Lake, IL. OAW has a great resale shop and proceeds go to their animals.

These particular pups were from a momma dog (who has since been adopted) that was found in Missouri and taken in as a stray. The litter had nine pups, and all have been adopted except for these two.

Annabel loves to give kisses. She is hard to resist.

Verona is the best at cuddling. Also hard to resist. Who doesn’t love a good cuddle?

I had the pleasure of puppy sitting this adorable border collie puppy for the day. His mom won a photoshoot in a fund-raiser auction that I had donated. I picked Grit up from her early in the morning and we did several short photo sessions throughout the day. He was a star! He loved my cats, he was just curious enough to not be annoying, and they were fast enough to hop up on the fence and get away from him when he chased them!

Grit loved to play with every toy I threw his way, but his favorite thing of the day was Chops (alex). He shadowed Chops and learned some new things such as how tasty grass is, but you have to choose the right pieces, and it’s better to roll on your back in the sun, but if you want to stretch out and nap you’re better off in the shade. Life lessons that he will have for all of his days, no doubt.

I took Grit to several locations on the Chops Property and fully expected he would wander off sniffing, so I kept a long line on him for peace of mind. He did not leave the front view of my camera once. He was totally engaged with me, playing, posing, being a puppy just for me! He could have a professional career as a dog model. Grit will be back for another session as he grows up (sigh… which will be quick, of course) and I can’t wait to see if he still fits under Chops’ legs!
