Big Dogs in Pretty Places

Oh, I just loved this session! I shared a fantastic morning with Jamie, Rich & their three dogs, and when I try and think about what specifically made this session so great, I can’t just think of one thing:

~  We started the day at a relative’s farm out in Molino. Future clients: if you have access to wide open spaces and/or beautiful property out in the country, PLEASE let me know! This was a great spot to start our day!

~  We took a sweet ride in an open-air Jeep.

~  If you’re a regular blog follower, you know: this session was (in part) my birthday gift to myself! Because in two years of business, I had never photographed a Bernese mountain dog, and I think they’re such beautiful dogs. So it was my pleasure to meet Juno the Bernese – and she didn’t disappoint!

~  The two other dogs were a golden retriever and a chocolate lab. Hellooooooo happy dogs.

But enough talk! Let’s get to the photos! This is an extra-large Sneak Peek so here we go…


 Let’s start with Juno! She’s 3 years old, she loooooooves that ball, and as you can see, she listens when her mom talks to her. (a.dorable.)

A fun Bernese mountain dog playing with a ball and with her owner.

Sydney is the next-oldest at 7, and she’s a total goofball! I love her “turtle” pose in the studio.

Last but certainly not least, at 14 years young, is Shiva. She is a sweet girl and loves playing with her parents.

Jamie & Rich, thank you so much for a session that was nonstop fun. Your gallery is sizing up to be extra large – I can’t wait to see you all again soon!

  1. […] win! She brought her sisters (a chocolate lab and a golden retriever) along, of course, and we had a ridiculously fun session together. I can’t wait to meet this year’s winner – so, to all you Afghan Hound […]
