The Dallas Arboretum 
If you've never been to the Dallas Arboretum, I can't stress enough: GO THERE! It is beautiful beyond words. I love bringing my camera there. I think it just might be my very favorite place in Dallas.

Now's a great time to go. Dallas Blooms! All the gardens are bubbling over with blossoms & bulbs in every color you can imagine. But I've been there in the dead of winter and been blown away by the beauty of moss on the stone walls. No matter what time of year, and what the weather is like, the arboretum is a lovely place to spend an hour or two or three...it's a guaranteed pleasant experience.

Here are a few shots I've gotten at the Arboretum, that really show its versatility as a backdrop.

SPCA 
My little dog, Mickey Maus, was a rescue dog from the SPCA. Our whole family just loves him. He was recently ill, so my boys and I took him to the vet (also the SPCA) for some testing. While waiting for Mickey to be released, and to avoid a wrestling match on the waiting room floor, I brought the boys next door to the adoption center. Honestly, I don't know why I EVER do this. I look, longingly, at each puppy and kind-hearted dog, and wish I could take them home with me. But we're a one-dog-family. Hopefully, it will be many years before it is our time to adopt, again!

In the meantime, here are a few of the puppies (and one cute kitten) who are up for adoption at the Dallas location of the SPCA.

To learn more about this organization, visit http://www.spca.org/site/PageServer?pag ... about_2004 .













FYI: A portion of every pet portrait print order I receive is donated to the SPCA! To learn more about my pet portraits (and, of course, my people portraits!) visit my website at www.janemaus.net .

April's Special 
Unbelievably, it is almost April. This means my baby boy is another year older...he'll be 5 in just a few, short weeks!

The approach of April means something else, as well...a new monthly special!

So, any client booking a portrait session in April will receive 10% off their print order! Woo-hoo! April is already filling up, so if you want to take advantage of this offer, contact me soon--there are only a couple more spaces.

Have a wonderful day, & thanks for checking out the blog!

Miss Tammy Kay at the Dubliner 
I really love shooting musicians. And the people in this band were so sweet & funny—so enjoyable to work with! This is Miss Tammy Kay and her band (including Jimmy Lee Reeves, who’s a great Texas blues musician in his own rite.) Check them out at http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fu ... =249765427 . As Jimmy pointed out, it’s surprising to see that Miss Tammy Kay’s tough, gritty voice comes out of this cute little lady! I’m so happy to have met these folks, to have had the opportunity to photograph them, and to have had the chance to hang out with them & swap some stories.

Here are a few of my favorite shots from the session. Oh—and by the way—a big thanks to the Dubliner on Lower Greenville for letting me do this shoot there. Check this place out--along with a truly comfortable atmosphere and friendly staff, they’ve got a really good menu…not your typical bar fare. http://www.dallasdubliner.com

Sweet Family 
Here is why I love this baby...

1. He looks SO much like my sweet little nephew who I adore.

2. When I walked in the door for the shoot on Sunday morning, he just looked so cute & cuddly I couldn't resist asking to hold him. The second he was in my arms he cuddled up & laid his precious little head on my shoulder--melting my heart instantly.

3. He was a total sport...super sweet & patient throughout his shoot, despite missing a nap, earlier. What a guy!

4. Just look at him. Who wouldn't love him?
