Rescued Dogs from Afghanistan

The dogs in these photos have a long & fascinating story, and it’s simply too much for me to tell in one little Sneak Peek post! Rest assured, I’ll spill all the details soon enough. But for now, I’m going to whet your appetite with one simple fact: the white dogs in these photos were rescued from Afghanistan. I’m so honored to know these pups and their awesome parents; I’ll write a longer blog post all about them next month, after my little Christmas vacation and after their parents have had a chance to see ALL the photos from our session. But I’m very excited to introduce you to Siena, Olive, and their American-grown brother Gabe! :)


This is Olive, an Afghan puppy that I met a few months ago – I think she was half the size she is now! She’s always on the go and super-curious about pretty much everything.

Sometimes she tires herself out and crashes on the couch… for about five whole minutes.

This is Siena, Olive’s biological mother. She’s very sweet, and much more calm than her daughter! Look at those EYES!

Last but certainly not least, this is Gabe! You could say he was their ambassador to American living, haha… they all get along great!

That’s it for now… I can’t wait to share more of their photos with you! Especially after our trip to the beach! :) Thanks for reading!
