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!?

Jaimoe & Georgia

I had the honor of photographing Georgia six years ago when she was four years old – I can’t believe she’s ten now! She still as active as ever, thanks to her new little (but huge!) brother Jaimoe. Jaimoe’s two now, and was just skin and bones when he was rescued off the streets. Of course now he looks amazing, and it was also amazing how quickly Georgia took to her new brother. They hit it off almost immediately and are the perfect pair. When they’re not wrestling and tugging together, they’re napping together!

Georgia’s favorite thing is still the ball, and while her markings have lightened a bit, that sparkle in her warm chocolate eyes hasn’t. Jaimoe loves whatever his sister loves, and when she’s trying to take a break he’ll grab a stuffed toy and push it on her to try to instigate play. (Then he’ll walk away dejected if she refuses. So sweet.) They even look like a matching pair, as Georgia is white with light tan markings and Jaimoe is light tan with white markings. These two are the cutest!

Jake, Lucy & Farley

Between these three, there’s pretty much every type of dog! Jake is the super chill, laid-back guy who will roll over and beg for belly rubs, Lucy is the sleek athletic girl who loves to walk in the park. And Farley is the goofball who’s always ready to play, overflowing with energy and zest for life.

Jake is the old man of the pack, a 12-year-old shepherd/lab mix who has an amazing lost-and-found story. On a family vacation years ago, he got lost in Florida. His family drove down almost weekly for six months to search for him. Finally, he wandered on to a golf course and thanks to the tags he was still wearing, he was reunited with his family. As soon as his dad came to pick him up, he hopped into the car like nothing had happened – like a doggie walkabout was an everyday occurrence. (Can you imagine?!) Luckily, nothing so dramatic has happened since and he spends his days lounging on cushy dog beds and when he gets really bored, chewing on grass – ha!

Lucy is a 10-year-old boxer/bulldog/lab mix (the DNA test said so!) and you can definitely see the boxer in her athletic build as she bounds around the yard, keeping the puppy in check. Farley is the baby of the family, a golden retriever who’s nearly a year old but is still 100% puppy. She’s a bouncy, happy girl who is happy to play with anyone who’s willing, and she loves every dog and person she meets.

Don’t you just love this pack?!
