That first year of puppyhood goes so quickly, and larger breeds go through such a significant transformation. It makes me happy when photographers capture those fleeting moments of puppyhood. Cooper, the Golden Retriever puppy, was only four months old when Michelle Stoker Photography took these pictures.
From Michelle: “Mike and Katy both wanted a Golden Retriever since they were kids. They thought ‘there’s no better time than now’ to add a little bundle of furry joy to their family!
Mike and Katy added Cooper to their family when he was just a few months old and wanted to capture the exciting puppy moments before he got big with a photo session at the University of Tampa. Cooper was 4 months old and growing into his big paws when I photographed him.
You can see more of Cooper, Katy, and Mike on Michelle’s blog.
