Have I ever mentioned how much I love engagement sessions with dogs? Or family sessions with dogs, for that matter. Sure, it can be a bit nutty – especially if your pups are anything like ours. They jump, they run, they pull constantly at their leashes, and are just generally excited at and about everything. Tails wagging, tongues hanging out, panting heavily because they just can’t contain their enthusiasm… for everything. I love it all. And there’s nothing a fast shutter speed can’t capture when it comes to including your pets, especially when their puppies. [Cue all the cute noises as you get a load of little Meeko, below!]
Emma and Sean recently moved to Indianapolis from North Carolina, right in the height of the pandemic. So while they’ve been limited in their exploration of the area, it hasn’t stopped them from planning their 2021 wedding and taking in some favorite spots in Fountain Square as local spots have learned how to operate safely in this changed world. I think Emma and Sean are also my first 2021 couple to have their engagement session with me this season, which means we didn’t meet in person until we stepped out of our cars on the evening of our session. We slipped easily into a groove as Meeko stole (and ran) the show. I had known in advance that Emma and Sean would be easy to shoot – they’re laid back, love to be outdoors and have fun, and I quickly found it to be sunset before I knew it.
To top it all off, though, as I was editing their session, my 2-year-old came up to the computer and with as much excitement as a kid on Christmas morning, exclaimed ‘A LION SUNBATHING!!’ as he pointed to a photo of Meeko that was up on my screen. It made my day and I still grin every time I come across a close up of the cute golden doodle, replaying the moment in my head. And with that, I leave you to browse this post, lioness and all. Enjoy!
