Jessica Beamgard of M& J Photography captured the love between a woman and her dogs while preparing for the newest family member is this dreamy maternity session. After the baby was born, Jessica was able to draw on her experience as a dog lover and observer and this pitbull’s gentle temperament to safely get some really sweet images.
From Jessica: “Sadie is six-year-old Golden Retriever mix and is a rescue.
The other handsome fur-baby is 13-year-old Pitbull mix Manny-Bear. His mama rescued him from the humane society when he was just a pup! ”
I love how content and relaxed Manny-Bear is when he’s near the baby. While Manny-Bear is clearly comfortable with the baby, another dog might not be. It is always better to be safe than sorry.

Do not jeopardize their safety for a photo! Know the signs of stress in your dog and respect his limits.
