Say hello to Belle! She is a Havanese doggy diva belonging to a wonderful family. When Belle’s mother contacted me to take her picture, I was informed that the 1.5 year old pup is very loved, very spoiled, and very much the center of the household… and indeed she is, and rightfully so. :) She is surrounded in these pictures by her identical twin bothers, John and Christian. Good luck telling them apart – inside their house are several portraits on their wall, and John and Christian can’t even identify themselves! :D The boys and Belle are super adorable, and I had a great time getting to know them. I send Belle’s mom this recommendation for her Halloween costume afterward as I think Belle would demand a costume that would highlight her assertive nature. ;)
You’ll see a lot of pets coming up on the blog. :) I’ve always wanted to get more heavily into pet photography, and with the help of clients past, present, and future, we arranged a bunch of mini pet portrait sessions for this spring with some adorable dogs and cats!
Meet Gracie+Gigi: the dogs of my very first wedding clients (who are two of the kindest and hilarious individuals I’ve ever met). Gracie is a Miniature Schnauzer (the larger, grey one) who enjoys being the protective older sister, treats, and being very well behaved. Gigi is a Shih Tzu/Poodle mix who likes following her mom around, being spoiled absolutely rotten, and dressing up in a bikini.
I knew this was going to be a great session when I was finalizing dates and times with Julie, their mom, and her first question was: “What should they wear?” ;)
The below picture is 100% candid, and pretty much captures the hilarity of the household. I do believe Julie was criticizing Gigi for being spoiled and unappreciative of her array of toys as she stands there in a dress with a little bow in her hair. Oh, Gigi.
Stay tuned for more Raleigh pets! :)
