Finally!! You can find it on Amazon now by going to the link below. (Details to follow about a book signing at King St. Coffee on Labor Day!) It's been ruff for me and my friend, Jeanette Burkle, my designer and editor in Colorado, to finish during this pandemic, but it's now done and we had lots of laughs doing it!
Enjoy the trailer!
I like you just the way you are -Mister Rogers

I love my job! As many know, so much happens behind the scenes! Recently, I had the pleasure of photographing this precious Standard Poodle, Leia.
Leia and her Mom, Karen Elarde, from Leesburg, are now officially a registered therapy dog team through Pet Partners. (You can contact Karen to coordinate a visit with your group.)

Among many things, a therapy dog is trained to provide affection, comfort and support to people...... look at the affection in Leia's face!
And, wouldn't a portrait with or without your best friend make a wonderful Mother's Day gift? If you'd like to schedule an appointment, please contact me. www.kathykupkaphotography.com


I had the pleasure of photographing this precious min. Bull Terrier, Puppet, today...also lovingly known as a tripod. She was such a good model! Look at that smile! I think many people know Puppet, she goes to work with her "Mom" who owns Bark 'N Bubbles of Leesburg. www.kathykupkaphotography.com

Just had a wonderful photo session with Lisa Ann Adams' precious pups, Puff and Buddy! Another wonderful session, if my sunroom could talk! So many memorable sessions over the years. Got a new card from one of the photographs taken today that I will share shortly!

Today is World Cancer Day. If you order my book TODAY from Etsy or Amazon, I'll include the attached (very popular!) card. I will also sign and can inscribe if ordering for someone in particular. Thank you!

Here is just one of the many testimonials I've received over the years. "a breast cancer survivor..our staff sells and donates wigs to those with all types of cancer. This book sits on my station counter....Thank you Kathy for making us all laugh and cry at the ups and downs of battling this disease.“
$12.95 soft covered book


Well I had my coffee at a different location this morning! I attended The Loudoun County Social Collective coffee hosted by the Virginia Army National Guard. So proud of these very young men! One wanted to show me how he dismantled his M249 SAW, (Squad Automatic Weapon, if you didn’t know), and then put it back together again. I tried to hold it, It weighed 15 lbs!
Thanks to Lisa Ann Adams, administrator/coordinator of The Loudoun County Social Collective for being such a good deed doer. Combined business networking and helping to spread the word about Operation Social Collective Care packages to send to our troops!

Here we go again! 😂 just received another Best In Show for my “Let’s Play” portrait! This time at The Artists in Middleburg’s new exhibition (until 2/13) called “Anything Goes.” Here is a very patient model, Robert Heron with a very thrilled photographer! Try to stop by to see the rest of the show, so many beautiful paintings, in The Artists In Middleburg


I checked with some of my friends around my age; and I asked them "what's the first thing that comes to mind about getting old?" I couldn't add some of their suggestions :-)

What a wonderful testimonial! MADE MY DAY!

Fellow procrastinators!! Still time to order one of my books for Christmas! "Cancer is Ruff" and "Online Dating is Ruff" are soft covered photo books, great stocking stuffers. Both books feature humorous portraits of dogs, in a loving way. (Over 1,450 copies of "Cancer is Ruff" have helped to make those going through cancer treatment smile to date.) $12.95 each
Being a survivor of both I understand how humor can get you through the ruff-est times!
When you order through my Etsy shop www.etsy.com/shop/KathyKupkaPhotos or Amazon, or if you're local to Leesburg, stop by to pick up a copy - you'll receive one of my doggy greeting cards along with your purchase!


This beautiful woman (some may recognize) is turning 50 years YOUNG soon, and wanted to treat herself to a photo session. We had a great time coming up with exactly what she wanted!
Still time to treat yourself to a photo session before Christmas, or purchase a gift certificate for someone who has everything!


Don’t tell Sandra but I love this precious Spinone Italiano, Ligio! And his whole family too! Last photo session this weekend. Getting close for Christmas portraits and cards! (truck not mine but still have the Victrola 😂)


Reminder!! Still time to purchase my Black Friday Special with the Victrola, with or without this great chair!! Purchase today and schedule up until 12/1 in time for your Christmas cards. Scout was a VERY good model this morning!! Info on my website: www.kathykupkaphotography.com


The possibilities are endless with this 5' tall antique Victrola! It's only available until 12/1, but you need to sign up before Black Friday to take advantage of my Special. I can add words from any song to go along with your dog's expression for your Christmas cards. Also can add a chair next to it for little ones. Please contact me with any questions! www.kathykupkaphotography.com


Good Morning! Maybe someone needs this encouragement today.... (Thank you Koa, beautiful Great Dane)

I just received this wonderful testimonial after my program at the Loudoun Photo Club....
"......when I saw the news today about Powell having cancer as well, I just thought about everything you spoke about and it was just so touching and well done. You educated us without it being a science lecture... Your book helps to show the emotional side of loss and pain and educates people to know how to communicate better with someone going through something - whether it is cancer or any other illness." Samatha Marshall

Thinking of my brave Mom who lost her battle against Breast Cancer. She would have been sewing for all the nieces and grandchildren she never got to meet.

My book is still putting smiles on those going through cancer treatment and is available for $12.95 on Amazon.com, www.etsy.com/shop/KathyKupkaPhotos, Gateway Gallery & Gift Shop LLC, Vintage Magnolia, Local Colour Old Town, LLC


Great photo session yesterday, this is one image that will become a card! Anybody recognize those ankles? HINT - a relative from PA with her precious new puppy. (Will show their faces later.)
Well, hard to believe, starting to schedule sessions for Christmas! Let me know if you're interested in full body and/or funky shoes and paws!! www.kathykupkaphotography.com
