It isn’t easy to get beautiful photos of dogs in the snow, but Alexis from AW Creates captured these gorgeous images of her dog, Ekko, in Brian Head, Utah. Ekko is so handsome, and he has the most beautiful eyes!
From Alexis: “This is my doggo named Ekko!
We were celebrating his one-year adoption anniversary with us with a trip up to the cabin in Brian Head, Utah! He absolutely loves playing in the snow and is a total doggy model.”

I LOVE seeing photos of dogs playing in the snow, and it looks like there is a significant chance of snow this week in many places. However, before you take your pup outside for a round of snow photos, make sure it is safe for you and your dog.
Safety Tips For Winter Dog Photography
Avoid going out in frigid weather or high winds.
Be aware of your surroundings: thin ice, branches covered in snow, and icicles can cause serious problems.
Keep your photo session short, especially for puppies and senior dogs.
If your dog has a thick coat, he will be more likely to enjoy the snow. Some dogs love a sweater or coat, but be sure to let it dry between excursions.
Trim long hair between your dog’s footpads if he is not wearing boots.
Unless your dog has a great recall, keep him on a leash or in an enclosed area, especially if your pup is in an unfamiliar setting. The snow can cover up scents, making it more difficult for a dog to find its way back to you.

That dog looks like a natural out in the snow. We have a lot of snow here in the east and my dogs like to play for short bursts so i have to take a few more winter scenes.

Aw, so sweet! It snowed here in Texas and I brought my cats out and they were like “nope” and ran back inside.
Ekko looks like such an amazing fur baby. You can tell he loves the snow.
These photos are incredible. It makes me wish that we had snow here. I bet my dog would love it.

Ekko is absolutely stunning, a very handsome pup. There is something about his eyes that instantly draws me in. It looks like he had a great time both modelling and playing in the snow – I know that our dogs would be all over a photoshoot like this as well! Congratulations also on the one-year adoptaversry – that’s a great milestone to celebrate!

You are right – Ekko has stunning eyes! What a cutie pie – I wonder what breed/mixture he is. I love being able to capture images of dogs in snow – they just come alive in it. Something about winter weather can make dogs very zoomy. Not sure how Alexis did it – but the juxtaposition of Ekko’s colors, along with the snow, and the sharpness of his eyes make the entire picture captivating!
