Fall is my favorite time to explore local vineyards with my pups and we are so lucky to have so many beautiful, dog-friendly venues to choose from here in Virginia. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For example, the @wineryatlagrange hosted a perfect day this summer for the @dcdogmoms! We did wine tastings and vineyard mini-shoots. And while it ended up being a misty day Hannah and @its.luna.time rocked their shoot like seasoned professionals. #winedogs . . . #dogphotographer #lifewithpets #hannelelahti #dogadventures #humandogbond #loveyourpet #vineyard #commercialdogphotographer #lifewithdogs #dogphotography #petphotography #doglife #puppylove #wagmorebarkless #dogsofig #dogworld #yearofthedog

While I love to talk about dogs with anyone I meet, I'm not as good about letting new people get to know me (Hello #INFP 👋). So I figured I'd give this #fridayintroductions a try: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. Nature is my religion and a walk in the woods is my version of going to church. The world is an amazing, magical place and I can't help but feel spiritual when surrounded by nature. I especially love this spot on Cadilac Mtn in Acadia National Park. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. My name origin is Finnish not Hawaiian or from Puff the Magic Dragon. When I was a kid I hated having to to pronounce it for everyone but now I like having a unique name. It’s from the paternal side of my family and pronounced “HAH-NAH-LAY” — “LAH-tee” (last name) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3. I'm still friends with the girls I met in Kindergarten + elementary school. They are my soul sisters and I love them to pieces. 💙 . . . . #dogphotographer #lifewithpets #hannelelahti #aboutme #commercialdogphotographer #lifewithdogs #dogphotography #petphotography #doglife #puppylove #wagmorebarkless #yearofthedog #threethings #infp #bostonterrier #hikingwithdogs #acadianationalpark

Hard to believe it's been 17 years since 9/11. It seems appropriate that today has become a day of service – a day to give back to your community, help one another, honor the tragedy by putting positive energy out into the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The alternative is to become shriveled by fear, anger and blame. And if you ask me, there is no place in this world for that. . . . #dogphotographer #lifewithpets #hannelelahti #commercialdogphotographer #lifewithdogs #dogphotography #petphotography #doglife #puppylove #wagmorebarkless #yearofthedog #giveback #dayofservice #servicedog #officedogsofcapitolhill

Yesterday was #PetMemorialDay so I need to pay tribute to my best dog angel, Murray. It's been almost 2 months since we said goodbye and the grief is still fresh, especially in the quiet moments. But we're able to talk about him now with more smiles than tears so I guess thats progress. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'd like to thank this community for all of your support during our healing process. Your messages, texts, emails, hugs and cards helped us remember we are not alone. Murray taught us so much about love, companionship and the beauty of the little things in life. Miss you, buddy. 💙 . . . #dogphotographer #lifewithpets #hannelelahti #bostonterrier #rainbowbridge #loveyourpet #commercialdogphotographer #lifewithdogs #dogphotography #petphotography #doglife #yearofthedog #dogmemorial

Its’ that special weekend of the year when DC area pools open up for doggie swims! My pups have absolutely no interest in this but it’s so fun to watch all the other pups get some pool play in before the end of the season! Have fun out there, friends! 💙🐾🌊

Once again Mother Nature is not cooperating with our plans to hike Mary's Rock. 😭 100% chance of rain on Sunday out in the Shenandoah so I'm going to move this hike one more time –– to SATURDAY SEPT 15th @ 1pm ⠀UPDATE: canceled due to weather AGAIN. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Meet us at the Panorama Rest Area (between Skyline Dr Mile Markers 31+32) on Sunday, 9/15. Best bet is to enter through the Thornton Gap Gate, pay the fee and head south. The rest area is the first right. See you soon! 🌲🐾🐶⛰ . . . #dogphotographer #lifewithpets #hannelelahti #commercialdogphotographer #lifewithdogs #dogphotography #petphotography #doglife #puppylove #wagmorebarkless #yearofthedog #hikingwithdogs #dcdoghikes #travelswithollie #dcdogmoms #dcdogs #hikingwithdogsdc #districtdogs #dogsofdc @dcdogmoms @wethedogsdc @dcsingledogparents #shenandoahnationalpark #visitvirginia

#OfficeDogsofCapitolHill :: Not only did Miss Daisy help bring her parents together in Senator Schatz's (D-HI) office but she gives the security crew in the Russell Senate building a daily dose of cute. . . "It doesn't matter who you work for or what side of the aisle you're on, people love to bond over their dogs. Once when I was coming into a Senate office building with Daisy, a staffer ahead of me in the security line looked relieved to see her smiling face. As he buried his hands in her furry head, he said, "We all need a little dog therapy these days, right?" Turned out, he was from a Republican office. I guess we are feeling the stress on all sides." ~ Daisy's Owner, Mika. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The full project and my mission behind it can be found on my commercial photography website under "projects." #linkinbio . . #dogphotographer #lifewithpets #hannelelahti #commercialdogphotographer #lifewithdogs #dogphotography #petphotography #doglife #puppylove #wagmorebarkless @natgeocreative #dogsofig #dogworld #yearofthedog #capitolhill #thehill #uscapitol #congress #dogsofcapitolhill #officedogs #photoproject #goldenretriever

Happy Labor Day! In our "busy is a badge of honor" culture, I hope everyone is taking time out for relaxation and play this long weekend! Dogs are great at reminding us to enjoy the small things. 💙🐾💙 . . . #dogphotographer #lifewithpets #hannelelahti #dcdogmoms #commercialdogphotographer #lifewithdogs #dogphotography #petphotography #doglife #puppylove #wagmorebarkless #dogsofig #dogworld #yearofthedog #winedogs #winery #virginiadogs #virginiawinedogs #virginiawineries #visitvirginia #wineryatlagrange

We are hitting up one of my favorite local hikes for the September #travelswithollie trips! This time we'll head west to beautiful Shenandoah National Park to tackle Mary's Rock –– a 3.7mile out and back hike on the AT (Appalachian Trail)! It's a moderate hike with elevation gain of 1200+ft but the view is so worth it! . . Meet us at the Panorama Rest Area (between Skyline Dr Mile Markers 31+32) on Sunday, 9/9 at 1pm. Best bet is to enter through the Thornton Gap Gate, pay the fee and head south. The rest area is the first right. . . Comment below if you’re planning to join us!

Happy #NationalDogDay! 💙 Shout out to my best bud Ollie for always being a “gracious” model when I’m testing lighting equipment... 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How are you celebrating your best buds today? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We’re busy all day with a full line-up of 15 minute mini-sessions to raise money for @citydogsrescue and @btrtn! Thanks to everyone who stepped up to support animals in need. . . . . #dogphotographer #lifewithpets #hannelelahti #charityevents #rescuedogs #bostonterrier #petportraits #studioportraits #charityevent #giveback #commercialdogphotographer #lifewithdogs #dogphotography #petphotography #doglife #puppylove #wagmorebarkless #dogsofig #dogworld #yearofthedog #dogglamourshots #rescuedogs #nationaldogday

Krembo joined us last weekend for the 1st round of mini-studio sessions. Sunday we set up for Round 2 – on #NationalDogDay no less. I can't think of a better way to celebrate :) How are you celebrating? . . Our Mini-Studio Sessions raise much needed funds for local animal rescues. So far we're raised $5500 for animals in need. The events are a ton of work but giving back to my beloved community is an important part of my mission. Plus, the dog models make every chaotic minute super fun. . . . #dogphotographer #lifewithpets #hannelelahti #charityevents #rescuedogs #petportraits #studioportraits #charityevent #giveback #commercialdogphotographer #lifewithdogs #dogphotography #petphotography #doglife #puppylove #wagmorebarkless #dogsofig #dogworld #yearofthedog #dogglamourshots
