About The Cover

This month’s cover image is by Paws and Play Studio — Dog Photography by Andrea Ou of Belmont. Ou lives and breathes that a house is not a home without photographs of your pup. She is honored and pleased to photograph her clients’ beloved furry best friends and creates custom photographic artwork of them. She said bringing joy into people’s lives — particularly seeing her clients light up when they see something that touches their heart — is the biggest motivational force behind her work.
