Client Session

Loki | Ritter Farm Park, Lakeville MN

February 18th, 2018. The weather was pleasantly perfect for February, the snow a wonderfully thick covering during Loki’s session at the Ritter Farm Park in Lakeville MN. Rocking boots and a new camera, we couldn’t have asked for a better day.

(This golden retriever is a seasoned pro at strutting his stuff in front of the camera – you can find him on Instagram as @lokiofmn. )

We strolled into the park (thank you Nicole for introducing me to this gem!), paused at the bridge, stepped into tall golden grasses set in nearly knee deep snow, moved uphill and through some scraggly pines. Further uphill gave me a low angle vantage point in attempt to capture a flying run over the crest. Loki was happier to prance up the hill. What a goof!

Into knee deep snow, where Loki pounced, pranced and played, happy to entertain his mom and I as he chased his ball.

The light began to draw from the sky, painting it a pastel pink purple. We continued on the loop heading in the direction of the parking lot when the sky transitioned into a vibrant orange that painted everything with perfect golden light! Our trek stopped to capture those last images flush with color.

That wonderful bandanna Loki is sporting is by Banded Pines (or find them on Instagram @bandedpines)

If you were curious about coordinating a winter session, the answer is yes we can! This is a great way to enjoy the season and explore a new area (or see the changes in a familiar one!). Keep in mind if your dog is a freeze baby, a winter session may not be the best option!

Suzi & Ellie | Minneapolis

A warm, perfect weather day had me in the GINORMOUS Theodore Wirth Park for a session with the lovely Suzi & Ellie. We meandered around the trails, stopped by the Wirth Pavillion, found a pocket of backlit dandelions and an adorable bridge (Suzi didn’t believe me when I said there was a dinosaur there…), ending the loop on the beach with an amazing sunset.

Their mom is a MEGA awesome human – she works at the Animal Humane Society! This is where she met the abused shar pei who was nearly to the point of giving up. Time and a ton of love has allowed Ellie to blossom into a wonderful dog. (Ellie is the cover dog on the website – that image is one of my favorites!)

And Suzi the puggle as the matchmaker for her mom and dad! She also sports an amazing head tilt at the mere mention of food – and is also very serious about food haha!

Two amazing dogs with a ton of character! Plus these two are super mega ADORABLE!

Rex & Ross | Starbuck MN

The fall rolled around and partnered with a pair of rambunctious labs – Rex & Ross. These two are besties and Rex’s mom wanted to do something special for Ross’s owner as well as getting pictures of Rex. We met at the lovely Glacial Lakes State Park – trees, grasses and best of all the water! Ross was a total superstar (and a tripod!) and Rex was happiest zooming through the water.

Piper & Moses | St. Joe MN Dog Photography

A balmy day in July 2016 featured a session with the bouncy Piper and a little shy Moses for their session. We started at their house for a jaunt chasing tennis balls and posing with the hosts in the front yard. Piper has a very toothy “smile” she shows when she’s waiting for a ball to be thrown!

Does this image above look familiar? That’s because Piper is the cover girl on the About A Dog website!

A little energy burned off we meandered to Millstream Park in St. Joe. The mosquitos weren’t overly awful and we only encountered a small group of disk golfers in passing. Moses was nervous and more concerned about being close to people rather than standing by his sister. Piper didn’t seem to mind the extra time in the spotlight!

An adorable family! Thank you for the awesome experience!
