When your job involves documenting some of the most important memories a family will have, you realize how quickly babies and puppies can change. They grow up in what seems like an instant. Photographer Samantha Coleman didn’t waste any time in taking these adorable newborn portraits of the newest member of her family: Willow the toy Australian Shepherd puppy.
From Samantha: “When my boyfriend and I decided to get a puppy, I knew I had to take newborn photos of it. I take real newborn photos all the time in my studio in Athens, TN, so why not take them of our new Willow? Surprisingly, Willow Grace slept like a baby when swaddled and let me pose her without hesitation. It was so sweet! Of course, my boyfriend and I also wanted to be in some of the photos, so I set up my camera in my studio and stepped in front of the lens for a change. Willow Grace is a toy Australian Shepherd.
I also captured a couple of sweet images of my other dog, Finley. Finley is five years old and is a Snorkie mix. My boyfriend wanted to take a formal photo with him at the end, and we did just that!”
