This is Rocky and his family, they came into the photography studio to get some updated family photos. It had been about ten years since they had professional portraits. We designed for their home a three-portrait wall art series.

Rocky, is a four-year-old Springer Spaniel rescue from the American Brittany Rescue. He is a playful dog who loves to run after balls and chase birds. Rocky is completely food motivated, any treat will do for him. He insisted on being part of every photo his humans were in. You’ll always find him snuggling in between his humans. 

Speaking of his humans, Desaree and Rick are both Army veterans, they met when they were both stationed in Korea, and then both were moved and stationed in Fort Worth, Texas. They like to say that things happen for a reason because they’ve now been married for almost twenty-five years. Both of them are outdoorsy people, Rick especially likes to take Rocky for walks and go cross-country skiing. The two are big fans of the Minnesota Wild and are season ticket holders so, we wanted to include their jerseys in the portraits. Being lovers of Star Wars, we did a super cool lightsaber portrait with the whole family in it. Great work Rocky and your humans!
