Oh, the pups! I do adore my tiny human subjects, but I have a special spot for their older (fur) siblings. It's so important not to let first borns feel ignored when a new baby arrives, so I always love to include them in our family photo sessions. And so, this post is in honor of the first babies of many families....
My sunshine doesn't come from the skies/It comes from the love in my dog's eyes.
No one will invent and no one ever did/A happier pair than a dog and a kid.
The dog was created specially for children. He is the god of frolic. - Henry Ward
When Finn was about three, he and I borrowed (okay, dog-sat) the remarkably sweet Walter-dog for a week, and it was pretty awesome to see them enjoying naps together. And amazing how they slept with their legs mimicking one another almost perfectly....
The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants.― Johnny Depp
The photo below with two pups looking right at me nothing less than a hard-earned miracle!
Thorns may hurt you, men desert you, sunlight turn to fog;
but you're never friendless ever,
if you have a dog.
To all the families with big, brave hearts that choose to parent a pup and a babe, what an impressive and lovely feat! Thank you for the honor of photographing all your babies, the human and the furry alike!
Postscript for you all:
Do you need beautiful photos of your small people with their fur siblings? I would love to take them!
