Usually when someone buys a gift card from me, I have to wait a little while to meet the person that they bought it for. Joel's daughter Donna reached out to me around Christmas for a present for her dad. I offer gift cards in almost any amount, so she decided she wanted to cover the entire session fee for her dad, plus some extra so he'd have a bit of credit to buy himself a few prints after our session. Well, Joel must have been pretty eager to get some photos of his French Bulldog Bella, because less than three weeks out from Christmas, he was in the studio with her and his wife Gloria.
I could tell Bella was very special to Joel. He even wanted a few photos of her and him together. I love when pet parents get in the photos too, so I was happy to hear he wanted to join in. Bella was absolutely adorable and such a good model. French Bulldogs have such adorable little faces.
After the session when I was dropping off their products, I got to see Joel and Gloria's beautiful lakeside home. Bella is certainly a lucky pup to have such a beautiful backyard to romp around in. While I was there, Gloria brought out a professional photo Joel had gotten done of his dog in the 1970s, a beautiful Siberian Husky. I think it's so great that after all this time, he still values photography and loves his pups enough to get a great headshot done of them. I'm so glad that my photos of Bella will hang close to that cherished one!
Here are some of my favorite shots from Bella's session!
