Next stop Wilsonville

Pet portraits at Nature’s Pet Market Wilsonville.

We are thrilled to return to Nature’s Pet Market Wilsonville and help them celebrate their third anniversary. I find it so hard to believe that it has already been three years since we first visited the store. It’s one of our favorite stomping grounds.

This year we are bringing out the antique blue settee, perfect for every dog.

Nature’s Pet Market Wilsonville always has an awesome party. Their knowledgeable vendors can direct you to the best food for your pets and the best part, there are always amazing treats for you and your pets.

Come see us on Saturday, October 21 from 11 am to 3 pm for a pet portrait of your favorite furry or feathered friends.

Nature’s Pet Market Wilsonville, 9740 SW Wilsonville Rd., Suite 210.

For more information or to make an appointment, call 503.999.1926 or email Holly at holly@terrijacobson.com

That’s a wrap Santa Paws

Siberian huskies

Zoe and Della

With a twinkle in his eye, the jolly ol’ elf traded his red velvet and white fluff for his Southwest desert wear and he is officially headed south in his bright red sleigh.

We had the best of times these last two weeks. I’ve said it before, he is the best of the best and I am so lucky to be able to work with him. There just isn’t another one like him, anywhere.

Bantam rooster

Jethro the rooster

This year we changed out our locations and it was better than perfect. We both loved being in the great outdoors and the settings felt so natural. We started our time together at a farm in NE Salem.

Blond American Pit Bull Terrier

Rue

The backdrop was the best and fall days in the Pacific Northwest can’t possibly be any better.

Yellow and black lab

Ranger and Remi.

Yesterday, we spent the wandering around our own greyhound gardens. A few bales of hay and we were set for a more farm-like setting in front of the barn. The gardens are close to hibernation, but they are still beautiful. We were able to have three set-ups. In front of the barn.

Jefe

We opened the doors of the barn, threw in a couple of bales of hay. This spot came in quite handy during the downpours we experienced. Yes, even in schizophrenic weather, the show must go on.

Basset hounds with Santa Paws

Cooper and Mabel.

And just because we could, we brought out the antique settee to the gardens.

Oh how I loved being out in the open with options. Yesterday was the best day ever.

Japanese Chins

Yoshi, Hiro and MagiMai

And we finished our time together at Nature’s Pet Market Salem. And today was another awesome day.

I want to give Santa Paws a huge shout out. He is amazing and always so willing to work with me as I move here and there.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart Santa Paws. You will always hold a special corner of my heart.

And, I have a secret. I thought this would be our last year together… And then, the jolly ol’ elf and I made plans for one weekend next August. Stay tuned.

It’s magical when Santa Paws comes for a visit

Our visit with Santa Paws at the farm last Saturday was one of the best. It was truly magical.

One by one Santa Paws greeted all of the dogs, a rooster and even a little old kitty. It was as if he never even left the Pacific Northwest.

He is having too much fun in the sun though. Even on the hottest days, the jolly ol’ elf loved his new digs. Where does Santa Paws go when it’s hot you might ask? The pool of course. His rosy red cheeks are sporting the best tan ever. When you think about it, who wouldn’t trade in their boots and white fur trimmed coat for a pair of swimming trunks?

We have one day left with Santa Paws. We’ll be at Nature’s Pet Market Salem on Sunday, Oct. 1 from noon to 4 pm. That’s it. Then Santa is hopping in his sleigh and heading south. The best Santa Paws in the west won’t be in the Pacific Northwest again this year, he’s gonna be in the southwest.

Come see Santa Paws. Again, we encourage appointments. You can email Holly at holly@terrijacobson.com and book a time.

One of these is not like the others.

Joy, love and a new lifetime of happiness

Boston terrier puppy

El Jefe, new love, new joy and a lifetime of happiness

Just a little over a year ago I had the pleasure of photographing Buddy, a very sweet Boston terrier. Buddy had recently been diagnosed with cancer and shortly after we took the photos, Buddy lost his battle. Hearts were broken almost beyond repair.

I have always believed that nothing heals the heart faster than bringing more joy, but it always has to be in the right time.

Enter little Jefe. The time was right and all of the stars aligned.

Meet the newest member of their family

This little guy is responsible for bringing joy back into the hearts of Sarah and Celso. Jefe just turned four months old and as soon as he got his last puppy shots, he was ready for an adventure with my camera.

Seriously, can this little guy get any cuter?

We returned to Wilsonville today to spend some time with Jefe. He’s everything and more than Sarah could have ever hoped for. She looked far and wide to find another Boston terrier. She did all the right things and when Jefe came into the world, they became a match made in heaven. Celso was a rockstar as he helped me move little Jefe throughout the park. We walked here and there, we stood on everything that looked like a safe platform and walked from one end of the park to the other.

I have no doubt that Jefe slept the afternoon away once we were done.

El Jefe. It means “the boss.”

Sweet little puppy, I wish for you many years of happiness and joy, many happy romps through the park, and a million toys. You are bringing Celso and Sarah a new love. Your tiny little paws will keep Buddy’s memory a happy and vibrant one as you build a whole new spot in the hearts of Celso and Sarah.

How much joy

Santa Paws

One of these is not like the others

Can one jolly ol’ elf bring?

I don’t think I have ever enjoyed working with someone as much as I enjoy working with Santa Paws. The jolly ol’ elf is a genius in his own right.

*Insert here: Damn those warm southern winters for taking him away.

Santa Paws is always up for whatever I ask of him. And, he does it with a smile and a twinkle in his eye. His expressions are on the other side of priceless and I really believe he loves what he does.

Together we powered through a whole big bunch of pets last year. I was exhausted by the time our whirlwind tour was over. I experienced a whole range of emotions when he hopped in his sleigh to head for the deserts of the Southwest. I was sad, I knew how much I would miss him. I was happy for him, while we were shoveling our rare snow fall, he was swimming in the backyard pool. I was delighted that we had such a successful season. We were able to donate a nice chunk of change to three area non-profit pet organizations.

Santa Paws is almost always my biggest fundraiser. I think I need more time with Santa Paws.

We have just a couple of appointments left for Saturday, Sept. 23 at the farm. If you would like a unique photo of your pet with Santa Paws, email Holly at holly@terrijacobson.com soon.

And, your last chance to have a photo with the jolly ol’ elf is Sunday, Oct. 1 at Nature’s Pet Market Salem. We’ll be there from noon to 4 pm. Again, we encourage appointments. You can email Holly at holly@terrijacobson.com and book a time.

Unless by some minor miracle, this is it. Your last chance to get a portrait of your pet with the one and only Santa Paws.
