I am so happy to share this image by the amazing lifestyle and wedding photographer, Tammy Swales. I hope your weekend will be as happy as Courtney, AJ and Sampson are in this photo.
From Courtney: ” AJ and I have been dying for a dog since we got out of college. When we finally got a house in 2012, we immediately starting looking for a puppy. We had settled on a boxer, and got a great referral for a breeder outside of NYC. We knew we wanted a white boxer, which is a color of puppy that every litter has but is not recognized as breed standard. They used to be euthanized by many breeders. But, we think there is nothing more beautiful than an all-white boxer. So, as soon as we knew the litter had two white puppies, we asked for a picture of him and it was love at first sight. We literally ached for him until the day he came home, and we’ve been in love ever since. Sampson is the best puppy – no chewing, no barking, no mayhem – he’s pure joy.”
Be sure to check out Tammy’s blog and facebook page! Tammy and her team have also made some fun and some serious/inspiring videos including this one that every parent/friend/loved one should watch! Remember it the next time someone points a camera in your direction. Better yet, book a professional photographer to take a portrait of you and the people/animals you love!
