Claire was a bridesmaid in her sister Sarah's wedding that I photographed a few years ago.  Their family dog Ozzie has recently undergone surgeries and chemotherapy due to cancer and she wanted to do a photo session to commemorate all their years together.  Ozzie had a pretty choppy haircut on one side of his body, but I think we did a pretty good job of avoiding it!  With all he's been through, I didn't imagine him to be so full of energy and happy, but he definitely still had a spring in his step!  Thanks for a fun session, Ozzie & Claire!

Paladin + Samson | Canine pet photography session | Urbana, IL

My past roommate Andrea saw my pet session posts from a couple months ago and jumped at the chance to get some photos of her family's adorable chocolate lab, Paladin. When I lived with Andrea, Pal was just a young, hyperactive pup but now he's grown into a somewhat more mellow, beautiful adult dog. They also brought along Samson, who happens to be Paladin's full brother. He belongs to a family friend of theirs. Leave a comment below the post and after 25 comments, Paladin's family will receive a complimentary 5x7 print! I LOVE this one. :)
