Maddie the Cancer Survivor Dog! (Photo Session in Del Mar, CA)

I simply cannot describe how thrilled I am to be writing a second blog post from a second photo session with Maddie! Longtime blog readers might remember her first photo session from last year, and as it turns out, in the past year Maddie has not only been a cancer survivor but has surpassed every potential time frame that her doctors gave her!! She’s been through a lot – seriously, a lot – but I’m so happy and proud of her & her mom for fighting through it all. So what better way to celebrate than a photo session on the beach, just in time for this year’s Christmas cards? :)


It’s good for Maddie to get plenty of rest these days, so she spends most of her time at home. She goes on walks, sure, but not too many places beyond her neighborhood too often (besides the vet, of course). So our photo session marked Maddie’s first time at the beach in over a year! Can you believe it? Maddie sure couldn’t – she was so excited to be there that her barks turned into high-pitched squeaks! Haha! It was so cute to see her so switched-on and invigorated with each sight of something new. She used up so much energy that she must have been passed out for the whole drive home – and probably the rest of the night, haha! But I know she enjoyed every second of our beach trip, and I did too. :)


 Here she is! Maddie the cancer survivor champ! Look how thrilled she is to be running around with her mom!

Maddie certainly hasn’t lost her sense of humor…

These two have been through so much together, and I absolutely adored the chance to photograph their relationship again. Trust me – these are two strong ladies, because they have each other to lean on.

Leslie, our session was a total pleasure, as always – give Maddie a hug for me & I’ll see you again soon!
