Puppy Smell

A pet photographer’s dream, I had the opportunity to photograph an EIGHT-WEEK OLD PUPPY on Friday evening!!!! This little golden retriever’s name is Dakota, and she’s off on new adventures with her loving family – including an early trip to meet the salt water she’ll undoubtedly get to know so well!


Dakota has some human siblings as well as a four-legged sister you’ll meet later in the next year. This lucky pup [read: lucky photographer] will be hooked up with three or four sessions, including backdrops of foliage and snow in the coming months! Get your own one-year “Coming Home” package HERE.


Dakota is such a baby-soft white color right now, but she wasn’t bashful about romping in the sand, mud and grass! I could have sat with this sweet girl for hours and hours…


This is just a sneak peek for now – many more to come! Diane & John, thank you so much for reaching out to me, and I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed smelling your new puppy!

    Jess - Stacey – I LOVE the picture in the top row, third from the left. I don’t know if you planned to get Dakota in that part of the frame, but it’s a great composition!!
