Relaxing in the Front Yard: Beckham the Labrador

Beckham is not your typical labrador. He’s happier laying down than running around, and he’s built more like a bear than a dog! Beckham is a gorgeous, goofy 7-year-old lab who was so much fun to photograph! We stayed in his front yard for most of our session because that’s where he loves to be, and he was more than happy to lay around and let us feed him treats.

He lives a pretty great life, but unfortunately, he’s always been plagued by health problems. Recently, his parents found out that he has a tumor in his heart. I can’t imagine what they’re going through. It’s just not fair for a dog that’s so sweet and has so much love to give… but we didn’t focus on the negatives today. We had a wonderful time and Beckham kept us laughing throughout the session. Thanks for a great morning, big guy!


The yard is his domain… I don’t know what would happen if he didn’t keep watch over it.


He actually ran for us! This boy has get-up and GO! (I was only slightly scared for my life when I saw him barreling towards me)


… bear-like paws, wet with the morning dew…


We finished up by taking a bath. In the sunlight.


Karin & Mick, it was an honor to meet you & Beckham. I hope you had as much fun as I did today! Thanks again, and I’ll see you soon!
