Personal: I’m going to Europe!

So guess what! I’m going on vacation!!

It’s been a crazy year and a half in my life, and even more so for my husband. The long story short: he’s a helicopter pilot but he’s getting out of the Navy. So much has happened, so much that we never expected, both good and bad… talk about UPs and DOWNs! So right before he officially becomes a civilian again, we’re going on a trip! To Europe! It’ll be great to explore new things together that aren’t Navy medical policies and review board applications, haha…

Our itinerary includes Munich, Paris, Prague, Zurich, Lake Como, and Vienna! Maybe more! We’re usually the type to plan out every aspect of our vacation, all the way down to the order of rides we go on at Disneyworld (I know I know, it’s obnoxious), but because of our flight arrangements (or lack thereof), we’ve decided to take the opposite approach! We’re going to rent a car and just drive wherever we want each day – did you know Vienna is only 3 hours from Prague? I’ve actually already visited Munich, Paris & Prague – I studied abroad in college in Toledo, Spain, and that’s when I took the photos you see here.

I’m sharing this with you because A) I’m WAY excited, and B) I’d like to ask for your help! It would be a dream come true to do a pet photography session in Europe! Imagine: a hunting dog perched at the top of a rolling grass hill in Germany. A St. Bernard walking through a small Swiss village with the Alps in the background. A cute little terrier sitting outside an equally cute French bakery. There are soooo many possibilities!

So here’s my request: will you please share this blog post with your friends/relatives/acquaintances in Europe? Especially if they live in/around one of the cities I mentioned? You never know if they – or one of their friends – might think it’s the perfect time for a photo session with their pets.

It’s as easy as that!


The blog will be a bit quiet until I get back; I just had time to schedule one more post because I’ve been so busy with packing & preparations. Thanks so much – and get ready for a massive travel photography post when I get back! :)

    Have a fabulous time over there. I’ll be sitting drinking in Lake Martin next week. I will think about y’all having a ball. I’m sure I will relive the warm reception my poodle boy reached with open paws to your sweet Bailey.
