I’ve photographed their family four times over the years, and Mr. Mason has always been a part of them, in front and leading the family on his leash, with a happily wagging tail trailing behind. In this submission, I wanted to share a few images from each family session over the years, because I just love how they’ve always incorporated him in the family photos and been excited to feature him – he has been part of the family since the very beginning!
Their toddler is four and super close with Mr. Mason, as I loved documenting in the solo shots of the two of them.
Mr. Mason is 13 years old and has aged beautifully in the past four years of family photos. These photos were taken at Gantry State Plaza Park in New York City. From the family: “Mr. Mason is almost 14 now and still as loveable (actually more so) than he was in puppydom. He’s great with his little human siblings, with the sole exception of being a pacifier stealer (and eater). He keeps under the high chair spotless. Is especially fond of watermelon. And relishes being the only “baby” to sleep in his mama and daddy’s bed every night all night long.”
