What more is there to love than a pug who loves the beach? Kingston’s photo session at the beach really shows off his personality. Mary from The Sage Hound sure nailed memorable photos for his human with a mix of photos that show off his smile and the relationship with his mum.

From Mary of The Sage Hound

I met Kingston when I was asked to photograph the 2018 Petco calendar. We wanted beach images with lots of personality and Kingston brought a ton. He was ready for anything and would have gladly run up and down the beach all morning. He was either at full speed or flat out on the sand. Nothing in between with this handsome guy. Kingston had the best head tilt and very clearly loved his mom. His image in the calendar is one of my favorites. (posing with the surfboard) and he is now known as Mr. July.

Mary has been photographing pets since 2011 and working with rescues and shelters to help dogs get adopted through better pictures and fostering. In 2016 The Sage Hound was born as a way for Mary to combine her love of dogs, the outdoors and living a healthy inspired life on her new farm in Central Oregon. She has always loved animals and can now literally have her own ‘farm’ with chickens, goats, mini donkeys and her dogs, Molly and Marty. You will often find her in the garden picking vegetables and herbs for some healthy treats or in her kitchen blending essential oils for both hounds and humans. She specializes in outdoor adventure sessions with you and your dog and the Central Oregon wilderness in the background.
