Bunce & Butter

Bunce and Butter are the funniest pair. Bunce is a two-year-old yellow lab, and Butter is his partner in crime, an eight-month-old French bulldog. Even though they’re about the same color, they are definitely not the same size! But that doesn’t keep them from wrestling all day long, or negotiating who gets the next chew or toy.

Even though Butter is the younger of the two, she’s a little less active only because she’s too busy cuddling. Bunce, as you may expect, is always up for a good game of fetch but is just as affectionate and sweet as well. He came to his dad through the service dog organization Warrior Canine Connection, as his dad is a veteran who lost both his legs while in service to our country. (Hopefully I will be able to do a special post on that in the future, but for now, this is a sneak peek featuring the dogs!)

Bunce’s mom and dad are recently engaged, so of course we had to sneak that into the shoot somehow – you’ll see that photo below among all the other photos of Bunce and Butter. A big congratulations to them, and a heartfelt thank you to Bunce’s dad for his service and sacrifice.


Buckley is a very striking one-year-old standard dachshund who is quite possibly the fastest and the longest dachshund I’ve ever photographed! He loves to play fetch, which is beautiful and funny at the same time, with his shiny coat and svelte figure, but his floppy ears flying every which way. When he’s not playing, he loves to follow his people around and give them kisses whenever he’s allowed. Isn’t he handsome?

Lily & Toby

Lily and Toby are Yorkie/Bichon mixes who are too cute for words! They are the biggest cuddlebugs I’ve ever met – when we started the session, we sat them down on the bed by themselves and they immediately wanted to be picked up and held instead. They both love being in your lap and resting their head on your shoulder.

Lily is the little boss and LOVES her treats, while Toby is the athlete whose favorite pastime is chasing water from the hose. He will play fetch all day long, while Lily can only be bothered to run (well, trot!) if there’s food involved. Lily is six years old now, and Toby will be six later this year. Aren’t they the sweetest duo ever!?
