Julie Botos

Julie Botos is a graduate of Kent State University with a bachelor’s degree in Photojournalism. She has worked as a staff photographer with The Repository since 1998, where she has photographed everything from presidents to rock stars, from births to deaths, from sports to crime and from the bad in people to the amazing in people—all of which she would not change for the world. She is married to Tim and has two daughters, Claire, age 10, and Lily, age 12.

Last Look: Puppy-dog eyes

Our mischievous chocolate Lab puppy, Gracie, can find our shoes in the best of hiding places. Our first reaction is to get frustrated — and in this case, grab a camera — but it is tough to stay mad at her with her tilted head and droopy eyes. She has doubled in size in the four months since this photo was taken. And many shoes later, her picture-perfect puppy-dog eyes still have the exact same effect.
