What a very special day we had with Chestnut! When Kaitlyn contacted me about this precious girl, I was all in. We decided to shoot a special glam ‘Pretty Pup session with Chestnut to show off her personality and coloring, as well as her girly side.

This sweet girl has been in the care of Homeless Pets Foundation for several months and really deserves to find a loving home. Chestnut is an American Bulldog/Boxer mix with a gorgeous brindle coat that has a very striking grey sheen. She is young and healthy and has a lot of love to give.

When Kaitlyn and Chestnut arrived, we got them prettied up in full out girliness: a pink tulle full length skirt on Kaitlyn with an adorable denim jacket and couture headpiece by Australian designer Helena Rose, a perfect combination of classy and country. On Chestnut we did a pink tutu I made plus a flower headband. She looked ADORABLE. For the session itself we headed out to a park near my studio and enjoyed a gorgeous spring day for this photo shoot.

Kaitlyn looked so stunning I just had to take some portraits of her, too.

By the end of the shoot, Chestnut was rolling and wiggling with joy!

When Russell first asked me about scheduling a session for his dog Zeus, I agreed, envisioning an afternoon at the local park.  Time went by and schedules and life developments pushed plans to the back burner, but eventually the subject came up again.  This time the conversation went into more detail and a plan to capture a “Day in a Life” at the family farm was hatched.  Since I have wonderful memories of spending time in rural Georgia with my extended family, as well as several summers working at a Ranch in upstate NY, I was more than happy to leave the city behind for a day and smell the country air.

We set off from Atlanta mid-morning, stopped for supplies, then made a stop in Crawfordville to take a few photos around town.  Then we headed out to the Greene Acres, and the previously laid back Zeus was up and excited with his head out the window once we approached the property.  Despite the 100+ degree heat and humidity we had a great time with tractors, all terrain vehicles, sticks, swimming holes, and wide open spaces.  Both the two legged and four legged guys were definitely in their element.  The collection of images reflects the landscape, activities, neighbors, and the aura that makes this place such a special retreat.

At the end of a lovely and full day with my dear friend Russell and his boy Zeus we headed back to Atlanta and saw this gorgeous sunset.  Georgia on my mind, indeed.
