Photo Session with Tricolor Dogs Tate & Skyler!

I’m so excited to share this photo session with you! And I know calling these dogs “tricolor” isn’t very descriptive… but for two pups with no identifiable breeding and yet look like they might have been separated at birth, that’s the best I can come up with! Haha! :) Tate & Skyler weren’t separated at birth, though; Tate is a 3-year-old border collie mix, says his DNA test, and Skyler is a 10-month-old Siberian husky/Rottweiler/border collie/sheltie mix (whew!) according to her DNA results. Regardless, both dogs are gorgeous, fluffy lovebugs and I had an absolute blast playing with – I mean, photographing them! :)

I really enjoyed getting to know these pups’ beyond the surface during our Dalmatian Package. Because for as similar as they look physically, they have incredibly distinct personalities – Tate has come a long, long way in becoming less dog-reactive since his mom adopted him. They’ve worked hard for him not to freak out upon seeing another dog, even at a distance… and today, you’d never guess that it was an issue he struggled with so much! His mom Robbin has done such an incredible job helping him overcome his fears! Skyler, on the other hand, is a happy-go-lucky puppy who’s “a sweetheart 95% of the time”, Robbin says! Luckily, she was a sweetheart 100% of the time for our photo session, haha – and I never got tired of photographing her beautiful smile. (Seriously – this pup could be a doggie model!) Skyler loves to play, too, but she leaves the task of fetching tennis balls to her brother – otherwise he completely runs her over as he charges toward the ball! But I think it’s still safe to say that playing together is their favorite pastime.

Okay, enough storytime – I simply can’t wait any longer to show you their photos!


This is Tate! He was pretty much a pro at posing for the camera, don’t you think?

And this gorgeous girl is Skyler! How beautiful is she?!

And here’s one of several portraits that both dogs were willing to pose for together… I was so impressed at how willing they were to snuggle up together & smile for the camera, time after time!

Robbin (and Jen), thank you so much for a wonderful afternoon! I hope you had as much fun as I did – and I can’t wait to show you the rest of our photos! :)
