Meet the little (and soon-to-be famous, I’m sure) dog models Brewser and Scarlett McLean, furry children of the wonderful Raleigh wedding planner, Erin McLean. :) Brewser, a Yorkie Poo, enjoys treats, chasing his sister around the yard, and not having to dress up for pictures. Scarlett, a Toy Poodle, likes wearing a dress, being spoiled, and staying indoors when it rains. Together they were very good on their photo shoot, posing in what they thought was a very sophisticated manner and trying not to make Erin run all over the place. ;)

Little Brewser, although impossibly tiny, is 8 years old and is a very sweet little guy about a third the size of my cat. Scarlett is a newer member of the McLean household and had a sad background story as a rescue from a puppy mill, but is now doing wonderfully and is the happiest little gal on the planet! They’re both very lucky to be well-loved by Erin and her husband. Part of the reason I love photographing pets so much is seeing how happy they all are. They all have great homes and are spoiled silly just like children… and it makes for a very happy photo shoot. :)

Royal is a 2 year old Brittany Spaniel who came into my life via his parents’ relationship with the parents of Hermine the Cat. And I could not be more thankful. He was such a grounded and polite subject and his name describes him perfectly. He would sit, stay, lay down, and even fake sneeze. That’s right. They taught him how to fake sneeze. They’d say “Achoo!” and he’d make a sneezing sound on command. Then, when he realized sneezing equaled treats, he’d sit there and sneeze and look at us like, “Hello! Here I am! I am sneezing! Where is my treat, please?” In his spare time, Royal enjoys chasing his toy pheasant, sitting on blankets (he dislikes hardwood floors), and playing with his soccer ball.

I was happy to have another wonderful client reunion with yet another CSP original couple (one of the first three!) on Monday. And while we had craaazy weather with the epic evening storm was that brewing, overcast skies and cows-flying-through-the-air wind, the doggies and us made the best of it!

Peanut is a Maltese/Poodle mix and enjoys chasing and biting his little sister, dragging around his toy duck, and treats. He cracks me up because he reminds me exactly of a stuffed dog I used to have when I was little. Butter is a Yorkie/Poodle mix that enjoys running, jumping, and running. Peanut was Erika and Dustin’s first dog, given to Erika on Valentine’s Day. Butter came a while later and was named to go along with Peanut… but Peanut ended up being much larger… and now they enjoy snickering behind their photographer’s back when she confuses their names a lot. ;)

These two were great, energetic little pups who enjoyed having the run of the park on this crazy windy day!
