Lucy - Puppy Lifestyle Newborn Session

I’m going to start this off by saying this might have to be one of my all time favourite sessions ever! Amanda and I had been talking for some time about her wanting to get a puppy. She knew my husband and I have two black labs, and she wanted some advice on getting her first puppy. Once they picked out the breeder and knew when they were going to get her, I started to think about how cute it would be to have a lifestyle newborn session with the puppy! When Lucy was born, Amanda started to share her photos from the breeder’s site with me and I fell in love! I approached Amanda and Dustin with my idea and they were totally game. We set up the session about 1 week after they brought her home, when Lucy was 9 weeks old. Now, I haven’t photographed many puppies and I wasn’t sure how this would go. But OH MY GOODNESS, it was cuteness OVERLOAD!! Not only did she sleep through part of the session, but didn’t oppose to getting wrapped up or placed in a bowl. I think I could have stayed there all week photographing her.

I got an added surprise when Amanda messaged me a few weeks later to tell me that Bosley’s had chosen one of Lucy’s images to be in their annual calendar! So cool!
