Sometimes it can be a challenge to photograph pets, but that wasn’t the case for Nina K. Photography. When she had a family photo session with Belle the Chiweenie and Bentley the Dachshund, both were perfect models.
From Nina: “I photograph a lot of people…adults, children, families, weddings, newborns…and pets. They are all a lot of fun, but not all of them can pay attention or remember to look at the camera (particularly the toddlers and the pets, haha!) When Jamie brought her dogs, Belle and Bentley, to the shoot, I was so excited because I love animals. These dogs were the best listeners. Belle and Bentley looked RIGHT at the camera every time. They weren’t nervous, or fidgety. They were just adorable, and their eyes are fantastic! This was seriously one of the easiest sessions I’ve had…with or without pets!”
From Jamie: “We have two dogs: a wild-boar, dapple dachshund, named Bentley, and a Chiweenie(Chihuahua/Dachshund) named Belle. They definitely got Bentley’s breed right when they said wild boar because he is our wild child. Belle, on the other hand, is our mellow fur baby so we’ve got a good mix of personality for sure! Stephen gave me Bentley for our second wedding anniversary…best present ever!!!
We rescued Belle while visiting with my uncle for Thanksgiving in Fall 2016. We heard about an abandoned little puppy in a trailer, and of course, I had to investigate. About an hour later, I was driving away with my sweet little Belle. Stephen keeps telling me we better own a farm one day because he knows I’m going to keep coming home with stray pets. A farm full of dogs sounds like absolute heaven to me! Dogs are just the best!
‘If the kindest of souls were rewarded with the longest of lives, dogs would outlive us all.’ I absolutely love this quote. Dogs are the most selfless, loving creatures on the planet. Life would be so boring and sad without dogs. We just recently moved to Florida from Maryland where Stephen was stationed in the Army. Stephen traveled a lot while in Maryland, so Bentley and Belle were great companions for me at that time. Bentley and Belle are loving the Florida sunshine and so are we! Stephen and I have been happily married for a little over 3 years now. We have known each other since grade school, so we enjoyed a long friendship before we finally decided to tie the knot. We are both from a tiny town in south Alabama, so we are so blessed to live closer to our family where we are now.
Life is good!”
