Last week I shared some great Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Dog Lovers, but if you want to get her something special, consider a dog-friendly pet portrait session. Although most dog lovers have thousands of photos of their favorite muse, a photo with her dog is generally harder to get. The bond a person shares with her dog is special and should be celebrated with beautiful images. Like this portrait session of Brooklyn, and her dog, Chico, from Austin Garnette Photography in Columbus, Ohio.
From Austin: “Everybody who knows Brooklyn knows that she refers to her dog Chico as her son! That alone tells you just how much Chico means to her. Just like any proud mama would, Brooklyn planned a beautiful autumn Mommy + Me photo session for her and her son! They coordinated outfits and got beautiful photos taken at the Topiary Gardens in Columbus, Ohio!
Chico is eleven and is a Pitbull. Brooklyn’s dad bought her this dog in Michigan from the original owner who was looking to find him a new home!”
From Brooklyn: “Chico means the absolute world to me. He makes my day every day. He brings me comfort when life is just too much, and I couldn’t imagine my life without him. Having moved away and on my own. He has eased my loneliness and reduced my stress, anxiety, and depression.”

Such adorable shots. And that mural is the perfect backdrop. Love it!
You can see all the love and dedication; the mural is amazing too. Thanks for sharing this.
I would love to do a photo shoot with my three fur kids. I’m just afraid it won’t be possible to keep them all together.

These are some beautiful portraits! I need to get some photos done with our dogs!
This amazing dog is so sweet! Love its kind eyes!
Ahh how cute is this to do with your fur baby! Love it!
Such a cute pair! This is a fun idea for a photoshoot. I would love to do this with my pets.
Chico is such a cutie pie! Michigan dogs are the best (I have to say that because I’ve from Michigan). You can really see the love that he shares with his mommy. What a wonderful idea for Mother’s Day! I don’t think anyone would ever regret having beautiful photos with their furbabies.
