Pet Photography - Laurie + Jaxson
Labs are some of the best dogs on the planet. Do I prefer prissy lap dogs like a Bichon-Poo who lean back on their hind legs and bat their little front paws for a treat? Yes, I do – I’ll be honest. I love little fluffs of happy that I can humiliate by dressing up.
However, if I want to go hiking, throw a tennis ball into an open field for an hour, or feel protected, I’m going to go with a lab. They are so full of energy, outgoing, and friendly. Labs are excellent kid dogs and are the #1 breed in the U.S for 26 years in a row. Size is just a word for them and they definitely do not consider theirs when they lay right in your lap – all 70 pounds of them.
Okay, so this isn’t a lab commercial and I am not paid by the American Kennel Club but I have an AMAZING lab to show off to you today. A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of shooting my first pet photography session. PET PHOTOGRAPHY IS A THING YOU GUYS. And it is the most adorable thing I’ve seen since witnessing two toddlers dress up as the couple from Up! for Halloween. When I first met with Laurie and Jaxson, we sat outside a Starbucks, sipping our iced teas, and chatted about the feels of the shoot. During our brainstorming, Jaxson leaned his whole body weight against me and demanded extra luvins by locking his beautiful brown eyes with mine and staring into my soul.
It was love. It was fate. It was a lab.
Jaxson always had a big smile for Laurie which made snapping these shots a bit easier while constantly chasing this big bubba around.
Nothing can come between the bond of a girl and her dog.
