I'm taking a break from the Christmas photos to wish a happy birthday to Baxter! At 12, he’s the elder statesman of his pack, which also includes sisters Misha and Hazel. These three are so sweet and so incredibly devoted to their mom Irene. That’s why I was so excited when she asked me to photograph Baxter’s 12th birthday picnic at Blydenburgh County Park. Irene even made Baxter a doggy bone shaped cake, which the pups were not shy about enjoying. It looked delicious, but I have to admit I didn't try it :D
By a crazy coincidence, we ran into the family who owned one of Hazel’s puppies during our shoot. We ended the day with a very sweet family reunion, where Hazel was overjoyed to see her son again. It was a great day. Here are some of my favorite photos from the session. Enjoy!
