Sasha & Shelby

Sasha and Shelby are beautiful six-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. Shelby was rescued from a puppy mill raid three years ago, where she was used as a breeding dog and was terrified of everything when her parents first brought her home. It was wonderful to see how much she’s blossomed in her new home now that she has a family that loves and cares for her. She’s happiest when she’s tearing around the backyard with Sasha and loves to chase toys, although she hasn’t figured out how to pick them up and bring them back yet. :p

Sasha was a complete and total ham and made it clear from the moment I arrived that I was there only to give her belly rubs. There was actually a point where I was trying to roll her back onto her stomach because all I had were upside-down images! These girls will be getting their first human sibling this winter, so we had this session so that the girls will have their own round of photos before they have to share the limelight.

Sasha has the Blenheim coloring, and Shelby the tricolor (but missing the tan, funnily enough!):

Liz - Leesia, these are gorgeous!! I had a King Charles Cocker Spaniel growing up, and she was a beautiful, friendly dog. These are such great photos. I love the focus on the eyes in the close shots!
