Georgie | Pinehurst Photographer

Furry family members are just that…family! My family got a Shih Tzu last summer to “replace” our son going to college. As a Pinehurst Photographer, I have documented his first year.  A different kind of Watch Me Grow Package, right?

Georgie turns ONE tomorrow and I had to take this opportunity to celebrate his big birthday! I made this little, layered, dog-friendly cake for his Cake Smash Session. It had apple and peanut butter in it and he quite liked it (thank you Pinterest)! We also tried to recreate the image I took of him in my Pinehurst studio a few days after we got him. Unfortunately, he had outgrown the bowl!

I often get asked if family pets can be part of sessions.  My answer is YES! I have done Maternity Sessions, Sitting-Up Sessions, and Family Sessions with furry family members. It’s always fun with a hint of unpredictability! Honestly, working with pets isn’t much different than working with toddlers. I try to take the images with the family pet first thing.  I have great luck doing it this way! Some clients bring a friend to watch the dog after their picture and some have had a crate in their car (when the weather is cooler – not in the spring or summer!). I recommend bringing a leash, a toy (preferably one that squeaks) and a treat.  If you get your dog groomed on a regular basis, you should schedule a grooming session the day before. After all, you want them to look their best!

As a Pinehurst Photographer, I encourage all family members to join in your session.

Happy 1st Birthday, Georgie Sewell!
