I first met Mary a few years ago when she got in touch with me to photograph a session for her daughter’s dog Finn, who was a beautiful black lab. I’m so glad I got to know Mary, because she’s such a fascinating lady. She’s a huge dog lover and very talented, she even makes her own rugs. She’s showed me some of them and they’re so amazing! She also likes to hide little homages to her dogs in her rugs, which I think is so fun.
Her dogs Bell and Pike are two gorgeous titled Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. Bell has brown and white fur and gorgeous soulful eyes. Pike has beautiful deep black and white fur and a peppy spirit. Sometimes with more than one dog, there can be a fair amount of Photoshopping to get a final product of them sitting together. That was not necessary at all with these two. They listened so well and posed together beautifully. Mary was going for some classic formal portraits that just focused on these beautiful pups and their bond. We got them both together and individually on a bunch of different backgrounds to get a good amount of variety and show off their best features in many ways. It was so great getting to know these adorable pups and spending some more time with their awesome mom!
Here are some of my favorite photos from our session! Scroll to the last photo for my favorite outtake. Sometimes I love these silly shots so much that I include them in the proofs for my client. This one makes me smile every time I see it!
