I met these sweet pups and their parents at Blydenburgh County Park to do a long-awaited session that we'd planned all the way back in 2020. Zoey is a black Lab/Chow mix, which is exactly the mix that my dog nephew Ash is, so I have a lot of experience photographing a dog with fur like hers. I couldn't believe how soft and fluffy she was, and she was so amazing at posing. Her doxie siblings Hero and Robin might be much smaller than their big sister but they more than make up for their small size with big personalities. Dachshunds are especially fun to photograph with their long beautiful snouts and big expressive eyes.
We went for a walk in the woods for our session and even though we got a particularly hot day in May, these pups were up for any challenge. They even did a great job posing on the skinny long bridge on the trail. I thought I might have to do a ton of intricate editing to get shots of all the dogs looking at the same time, but for the most part, they did such a good job posing together that my compositing expertise wasn't even necessary!
Here are some of my favorite shots from this fun session!

Meet Mama! She’s a beautiful 11 year old pit bull and an absolute sweetheart. Her mom Elizabeth got in touch with me to take some photos of Mama to be displayed at her wedding in October. Her photos will be featured on the table number cards so that Mama can be a part of the big day. We met at Blydenburgh County Park and the weather had been looking a little iffy. But we persevered and only felt a drop of rain or two and we were able to get some great photos of this adorable girl.
Elizabeth had some very cute props for us to use, like wooden signs and some flower crowns she made herself for Mama to wear! She was so patient and took every one in stride. Even though she isn’t a young pup anymore, she was game to go everywhere we led her and she sat beautifully for our photos. We got some nice shots of Mama on her own and also some very sweet photos of the special bond she shares with her mom Elizabeth.
I’m so happy I was able to help capture some special memories for Elizabeth and Mama, and I can't wait to see some snapshots of how the photos are incorporated into their special day!

I’ll be back at the Islip Public Library for another pet portrait program on their beautiful outdoor terrace. The program will be on Saturday, June 12th from 1pm to 4pm, by appointment. Please keep 6 feet of space between you and other patrons. Any pets are welcome, but please make sure they’re restrained with a leash or in a carrier to keep everyone safe. Appointments are available now to Islip patrons but will open to out-of-district patrons on June 9th. You’ll receive a free 8x10 and a digital file of your photo!
