Maybe it was serendipitous. Maybe it was just a fluke. Regardless of how it happened it did, and now I’m writing about it. Last Friday I had a newborn shoot. The little man was 11 days old and really had no plans on sleeping more than about 3 minutes total for me in about 4 hours. In the off moments while he nursed and I changed out blankets, I became best buds with their Yorkie named Pepper. If you know me then you know how much I love animals, and in particular dogs. Our Cockapoo, Lucca, is really like my first. My husband promised as soon as I got pregnant with our first child then we would get a dog. Two weeks later I excitedly declared that I was pregnant and asked when we’d be getting our new addition. He has been my best buddy and attached to my side ever since. If he isn’t already in our bed when I head up at night, I seek him out, pick him up and carry him to bed. It’s just the way it goes. Ask my husband. That being said Pepper the Yorkie, I believe, could sense my love for dogs and really enjoyed being around me. She even jumped up on my beanbag while sweet little Wyatt was with his momma and I SWEAR she was posing for me. It made me laugh, I captured it, and then I posted the image to Instagram. It started a flurry of activity on my part as a friend declared that maybe I have found another niche–pet photography. As such, I started posting other client images with their own fur babies. So with this post I do invite you to add your beloved four legged friend to our future shoots together! It would make me very happy! xoxo
