Some of you might remember Wrigley from Lori+Hassan’s engagement session back in January! Wrigley, a little Jack Russell Terrier, is an adddorable bundle of energy the love of this couple’s life! So Lori, a very faithful and wonderful client of mine, wanted to surprise Hassan with a session of Wrigley for his birthday on May 3rd. :) So we took these back in the verrry beginning of March (which is why these photographs look a little more wintery than recent) and I’ve been waiting to share them with you! But Lori broke a few days before Hassan’s birthday and showed them to him early, so I’ve been given permission to blog them now, hehehe.

So here’s Wrigley! Wrigley enjoys her green polka dot ball, cheering for UNC, and dancing around in her tutu. She is the most lovable energenic bundle of cuteness!! And for your information, Wrigley is named after Wrigley Field, as Hassan is a big Cubbies (and baseball!) fan.Raleigh pet photographer

Surprisingly, Wrigley isn’t motivated by treats. She was more motivated by this little polka dot ball, so I’d have to play tug of war with her in order for her to cooperate for the camera. But I was more than willing since she’s such a sweetheart! And I’d much rather take pictures of doggies doing their own thing than forcing them to sit still and pose. :)

Happy (early) birthday, Hassan!!! We hope it is a good one!! :) :)

I blogged his owner’s engagement session yesterday, so now it’s Clive’s turn! :) Sarah and Jimmy got Clive in October, and he’s been getting big fast. They had been following my pet sessions and wanted to book him one after their engagement as well as get some “family portraits” with Clive, and I was happy to! Clive is a black lab mix who enjoys his green rubber stick, his green rubber ball, and getting his belly rubbed. Although he hasn’t gone hiking or swimming yet, I imagine he’s going to go on a lot of outdoor adventures this spring and summer now that he’s a little older and the weather is nice. :)

Clive is a sweetie pie. “Want me to turn my head a little like this?” :)

Clive decided he wanted to get some Doggy GQ shots in and voluntarily cross his paws and was looking very majestic. We love you, Clive! It was an honor to be your doggy photographer!

Awww, meet little Fitzgerald. :) He’s 4.5 months old and a rescued stray who is nothing but adorable cuteness! He has a bad case of Stranger Danger like my own cat Buckles and he stayed hidden under tables and shelving units pretty much the whole time (coming out only briefly to take a stab at catching the laser pointer or the feather stick) but he is so so so cute! And during the brief moments when he stopped being incredibly suspicious and concentrated on catching his toys, I was able to get Fitzgerald action shots that capture his loving kitty personality. :)

Fitzgerald was rescued when he was really small by his mom Nikki when he wandered onto her friend’s property. She had to feed him formula since he was so tiny. Now he’s a lot bigger and doing very well in his home. He enjoys playing laser pointer, trying to get on the kitchen table where he’s not allowed, and sitting on the window sill behind the couch. Fitz is such a little sweetheart and had  a good time playing away during his shoot. Enjoy!
