Isla, the Bluenose Pitbull, joined her favorite people for the engagement session with Alycia from Fig + Willow Studios in Las Vegas. As a person who hasn’t visited Nevada outside of the airports, I often equate Las Vegas with casinos. However, there is much more to it. Alycia has a knack for finding gorgeous dog-friendly locations near Vegas.
From Alycia: “Corrina and Aaron are definitely one of the cutest couples I’ve worked with all year! I started chatting with Corrina a few months ago in the midst of the pandemic, and we really just hit it off, and it was so fun to help them plan their dream Las Vegas engagement photo session. One of the cutest parts of the session (besides them and their adorable puppy!) was definitely their beautiful luxury picnic set up by the talented Eileen Entertainment.
For the first half of the session, Aaron wore his military uniform to pay tribute to his job. So much respect to him for everything he does! And knowing that he was deploying a few short weeks later — made me honestly a bit nervous, haha. I always recognize the significance the photos I take will play — serving as nostalgic memories. Still, this one was happening way sooner than I expected since he was deploying so soon!
We decided to do their Las Vegas engagement session at Floyd Lamb Park in the Northwestern part of the Las Vegas Valley for a few reasons. One, being neither of us have been there before! I’ve been trying to get couples to venture out there with me before, and they’ve all turned me down. But obviously, Corrina is awesome, and it was nice to experience the park with someone else who hadn’t been there before. It’s one of the most unique places in Las Vegas I’ve ever been – that’s for sure! For one – it’s humid! I’ve gotten kinda used to the dryness that accompanies being here, and that was NOT the case. There are hundreds of birds that live near the pond in the middle of the park, and they made their presence known with lots of loud noises (Isla loved that!)
Corrina was adamant that they include their adorable Blue Nosed Pitbull in their engagement photos. And I was more than happy to accommodate.
Look at Isla; she’s a cutie that loves ALL the attention. She plays an integral role in her humans’ lives, so I feel it’s ALWAYS valuable to incorporate your pets into your engagement photo session. Isla was a CHAMP during this session, and look how happy she looks with her humans! (pssst. who are we kidding? she was the real star of the show.)
Wishing this little family nothing but the happiest of lives together!”
