This session was a gift from Janelle's husband Richard, to showcase her strong bond with her sweet pup Louie! I love when people give the gift of photography. It always ends up being such a special gift because it's both an experience and the end result of getting beautiful photos with the ones you love most. Janelle is so close with her boy Louie, she described him to me as the love of her life. I totally understand that feeling! They've been through so much together and it was amazing to hear a little bit about their story. Louie is not only her companion and pet, he's her hero.
We met at a local park to take a little hike in the woods. The whole family came along for the ride, but this day was just about the special bond between Janelle and Louie. I love the way his beautiful cream coat looks against the dark background of the trees and plants. Louie was such a good sport, jogging when we asked him so we could get action shots, sitting and laying when we wanted portraits. He also posed really well with Janelle for some sweet shots together. I was so glad to be able to capture some beautiful shots of this special pup for his biggest fan to cherish.
Here are some of my favorite photos of Louie from our session!

I first photographed this beautiful family in 2018, and every year since then I've had the honor of being a part of documenting their family's memories. When I dropped off their products from this session, mom Sarah showed me the many places around their house where my photos are displayed. It meant so much to me to see that!
This last session was done to commemorate their youngest James' first birthday. We decided to do it at a local dog-friendly park so that their furry eldest child (Benjamin Franklin, a consummate professional), could join in on the fun. James takes after his family in that he can pose with the best of them. We joked that with his suit and bow tie, he looked like an adorable tiny Godfather.
Older twin siblings Nathaniel and Caroline blew me away with how well they behaved. They were about 2 months away from turning 4 at the time we shot this, and they listened so well, I was thoroughly impressed! As long as we allowed them to do the occasional silly shot, they were game for anything. You'll see one of those shots in the slideshow below. I love showing these types of photos to clients because (though I am -AHEM- a serious artist and professional businesswoman) I am at heart a very silly person myself.
As a small business owner, when clients come back repeatedly, it's such a gift. To have clients who book every year and really show their appreciation for what you do, I can't tell you how much it means! Here are some of my favorite shots from our session!
