I got to meet the nicest fur baby and her mom, and wanted to share their photos from our photo shoot.  Molly is a 5 year old rescue pup, adopted by her mom Marie. They are the best of friends, and it was so amazing to see this bond between them. Molly was so well behaved. I was really impressed, and was so honored to capture these special moments for them. I typically do photoshoots in the afternoons to catch the golden hour, but Molly is a morning pup, so we caught the sunrise at Papago Park in Tempe. I really need to do more sunrise shoots because that soft light was so beautiful!

Look at how happy Molly is with her momma! Doesn’t she just want to make you smile? Marie adopted Molly when she was 1 year old, and trained her to be this sweet mellow companion. Marie is actually in the ABC Animal Behavior College and about to complete the program to be a Certified Dog Trainer. She will be helping a lot of dogs stay in “forever homes” instead of being dropped off at the shelters because of behavior issues.  How cool is that?

So after the photoshoot, Marie was going to stop at Starbucks for her morning coffee and Molly’s puppuccino. Now that is a best friend indeed!

      Yes, ask for it next time you have your pup with you! It’s just whip cream, but dogs go crazy for them! Thank you!

    What a gorgeous dog! It’s nice to see photos of people and their pets. Wish my dog would sit still for long enough to have a photo taken.
