It’s #takeyourdogtoworkday! 🐶 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ About a year ago I began the #officedogsofcapitolhill project as a way to learn more about life behind the caustic headlines of the political world. Since then, I've photographed over 30 dogs in offices all over the political map. . . Meet Bo: After being adopted through the Homeward Trails Rescue in Virginia, Bojangles,(@its.bo.time) began the important job of entertaining staff and visitors to Representative Mark Walker's Office (R-NC). - - #dogphotographer #lifewithpets #hannelelahti #commercialdogphotographer #lifewithdogs #dogphotography #petphotography #doglife #puppylove #wagmorebarkless @natgeocreative #dogsofig #dogworld #yearofthedog #officedogsofcapitolhill #capitolhill #ushouseofrepresentatives #rescuedog #dcdogs #dcdogmoms #politicalpup

I'm featuring a few of the #officedogsofcapitolhill models from my personal project in honor of #takeyourpettoworkweek. . This is Cricket the #Morkie in the office of Rep. Nydia Velázquez (D-NY) who was the first Puerto Rican woman to be elected to Congress in 1993. She’s been an outspoken advocate for the Latino community ever since. - - Cricket works with her Chief of Staff —training interns to dispense treats, attending meetings and welcoming constituents. My guess is they've been busy this week… . . #dogphotographer #lifewithpets #hannelelahti #capitolhilldogs #commercialdogphotographer #lifewithdogs #dogphotography #petphotography #doglife #puppylove #wagmorebarkless @natgeocreative #dogsofig #dogworld #yearofthedog #dogsofcongress #officedogs #uscongress #capitolhill #hope #powerpup #standupforwhatsright #immigrantsmakeamericagreat

"Children and dogs are as necessary to the welfare of the country as Wall Street and the railroads." ––Harry Truman . . It's #takeyourpettoworkweek so I'm featuring a few of the #officedogsofcapitolhill models from my personal project. As contentious as our government is, it is a reflection of all of us. But if you look deep enough, there are glimmers of hope, bipartisanship and decency. I won't give up on our country and I hope you won't either. . . Image: Carmela (@chiefmoraleofficer) is only capable of spreading love and joy to the halls of the US House of Representatives while working with @repstephmurphy (FL) and her staff. . . #dogphotographer #lifewithpets #hannelelahti #doodlesofinstagram #commercialdogphotographer #lifewithdogs #dogphotography #petphotography #doglife #puppylove #wagmorebarkless @natgeocreative #dogsofig #dogworld #yearofthedog #officedogs #capitolhill #goldendoodle #caphill #uscapitol #officedogsofcaphill #bipawtisan

Cloudy days make for dreamy black + whites so all the @dcdogmoms who came out to the vineyard on Sunday will get those in their proofs as well! #canthelpmyself #iloveblackandwhite . . Look how adorable @benimcproctor and his family are running through the vines!

PHOTO TIP TUESDAY >>> Leading Lines ~~~ Leading lines are useful for making your image appear more 3-deminsional. Elements like hiking paths, stairways and fences when used in the composition can help move your eye into the scene. . . Think back to Jr. High art class when you began working with perspective in architecture –– the lines become smaller and converge the further away they are. The same technique applies here. . . Try combining our last tip on "getting low" with this one and as always, have fun out there! . . #dogphotographer #lifewithpets #hannelelahti #commercialdogphotographer #lifewithdogs #yellowlab #dogphotography #lab #petphotography #yearofthedog #phototip #petphototip #phototiptuesday #leadinglines #makephotos

The torrential rain yesterday forced us to reschedule the @dcdogmoms Winery Day + Photo Shoot. Our new date is June 10th + there are a few openings for both the shoot + tasting and the tasting only. Join us for a fun day at a local vineyard! . . Grab your spot via the link in bio and hope the monsoon season in dc has come to an end! . . . #dogphotographer #lifewithpets #hannelelahti #winedogs #lifestyledogphotographer #dogphotography #petphotography #doglife #puppylove #yearofthedog #dcdogevents #dcdogmoms #vawine #wineryday #petportraits #dcdogs #dcsingledogparents #booknow

Update on my dear little Annie on the eve of her 12th birthday | 11th #gotchaday 💙 . The ultrasound results came back tumor free and since they got clean margins on the mast cells they removed last month, right now things look OK on the cancer front. We just have to be vigilant about checking her for new growths. . . While this is a huge sigh of relief we are still dealing with the effects of CCD (Canine dementia). Some days she forgets how to eat, gets stuck in places she should be able to navigate, paces at night and house training has gone out the window. She doesn't bark at strangers anymore – which if you know Annie, is huge. She still knows who we are and we get glimmers of her old, playful self but those moments are getting more and more rare. . . I share this because we didn't realize canine dementia was really a thing. We watched her do "weird things" for the past 6 months thinking it was just her eyesight or hearing going bad. But everything she's doing lines up perfectly with Canine Cognitive Disorder and it came on fast. . . So if you have a senior dog starting to act strangely, ask your vet about CCD. There are supplements you can use to ease symptoms but like dementia in humans, there is no cure. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . I'll continue to share updates as we navigate this new territory. In the meantime, Miss Annie will continue to be treated like the Queen Bee that she is. . . As always love those pups of yours. 💙💙💙

We had a fun, treat-motivated group at our #travelswithollie hike yesterday! Despite the weather and rescheduling debacle, everyone had a great time. Lots of sleepy pups afterwards, I hope! . . Next hike: June 9th – Billy Goat B+C trails along the Potomac River in Maryland.

PHOTO TIP TUESDAY: Today we're getting our knees (belly, entire body) dirty so we can get low! When photographing dogs, my main goal is the see life on their level – which means changing my perspective. . . Adjusting your point of view – even slightly – can significantly change the subject and meaning behind your photograph. Want to make a small dog look larger than life? Shoot up at them. Want to see life from their point of view? Shoot at their level. Don't be afraid to get a little dirty in search of a dynamic image!

Murray, Wesserunsett Lake, Maine 💙 . . While Ollie adventured with us around Maine this week, Murray relaxed at my parent’s house near the lake. We know the days are limited with our sweet boy but as our vet reassured us — “he’s got a good heart”... . . . . . #bostonterrier #lakedog #maine #mainelife #seniordog #optoutside #seniordogsrock #mainelakelife #olddog #dogphotography #doglove #petphotographer #pets #doglife #wagmorebarkless #lifewithpets #dogphotographer #puppylove #barkpack #commercialdogphotographer #ilovemydog
