Elle the Lab Mix in her Backyard

At only 8 weeks old, a little adoptable puppy appeared on television one day, on a promotional show by a Pensacola animal shelter. Lewanda, a wonderful woman who lived nearby, received a phone call from a friend to “turn on the TV right now – you’ve got to see this dog!” Lewanda tuned in, and fell in love. She immediately called her son, asking him to go to the shelter and grab that dog – but it happened to be so early in the day that the shelter’s adoption hours hadn’t started yet. So, while at the shelter, Lewanda’s son called her back – but instead of saying he was waiting to adopt the puppy, he told her that someone else had already come and gotten her! Lewanda was sad, but says she figured it wasn’t meant to be. But of course, unbeknownst to her, that puppy was on its way to her house! Her son showed up, knocked on her door and surprised her with the puppy from the TV show! Lewanda was thrilled, of course! She named the dog Elle (pronounced “elly”) and they live a peaceful, happy life in Pensacola! And let me tell you: this relationship was definitely meant to be.


We spent the session in their backyard, because it’s huge and beautiful! The weather was perfect for our session and we tuckered out poor Elle pretty thoroughly! :)  This is just a Sneak Peek, so there aren’t TOO many photos… but take a look!

Thanks so much for a fabulous afternoon, Lewanda and Elle! I can’t wait to share the rest of your photos with you!
