Spring Valley Pet Photography Session with Bridgette the Miniature Poodle!

I shared a lovely & intimate Spring Valley pet photography session with Bridgette the poodle and her parents recently! I describe it as “intimate” because we spent the whole session at their house; I simply adore when images are so personal that they feature my clients’ pets in the places they love the most. And Bridgette decided to show me her bed (okay, technically it’s her parents’ bed) and backyard, the two spots where she spends most of her time!

Bridgette is a mama’s girl, in every sense of the word. When she felt like our photo session was moving too fast, she would retreat to mom’s feet and politely asked for a quick break from posing. It was so sweet to see… they have an incredibly close relationship, and I loved photographing the bond between them. Bridgette is not technically a puppy anymore – in fact, she’s been by her mother’s side for over a decade. People describe dogs as “loving” and “loyal”, and Bridgette is a shining example of that incredible canine devotion!


Like I said, Bridgette loves her mom more than anything, but I think grass comes in at a close second! She was constantly “snacking” during our session, haha!

Bridgette is in her happy place. Clearly.

Oh, Bridgette… those eyes. That personality. I can barely handle it.

Thanks again for a lovely afternoon, Carla & Stephen! I can’t wait to see you both again soon. Give Bridgette a hug for me! :)
