Remember When?

For anyone who has followed the Triple D animals, is starting to follow, or even if this is your first is always fun to witness the development from  baby to teen to adulthood of our animals.  So I just wanted to take a moment to post a few "Then & Now" pictures for our amusement.  ENJOY!!!

Overview for 2014 Road TripSSSSSSSSS

That's right!  The Triple D will be taking more than one road trip in 2014!

We have already announced that in April, 2014 we will be traveling to Cortez, CO; more specifically the Canyon of the Ancients near the Four Corners.  We will have our best wildlife models exhibiting their natural physique amidst impressive Anasazi ruins.  In addition, we will offer an Authentic Western Horse Roundup, which includes a running herd of beautiful horses that will be showing off their majesty alongside the distinct red rocks at McElmo Creek!

Below are some images of one of the available Anasazi ruins that we will be using for our April sessions. Just imagine....a bobcat, a wolf, maybe even a mountain lion jumping up & around this incredible ancient structure!!!

So if these amazing ruins weren't enough to get you through the year, don't you worry....we've got you covered!!!!  Next stop, SLOT CANYONS!!!  Canyon X to be more specific....
Dates and more information will be released soon, but I'd love to post a teaser image just to get those photographic wheels spinning....

We will have exclusive rights to ensure an uninterrupted experience for our guests and our animals.
