Happy Monday! This adorable family portrait session from Sarah Der Photography is the perfect way to start a new week.
From Sarah: “Hudson is prettttyyyy much my favorite dog ever–I met him a week or so after they brought him home, and though he is a bit nervous when first meeting new people, he quickly warms up and becomes the most snuggly, sweetest dog I’ve ever met! Katherine is as crazy about dogs as I am (she also happens to be a talented North Carolina wedding photographer!) and could barely contain her joy and excitement when she and Chad brought Hudson home. Hudson currently loves snuggles on the couch, peanut butter Kongs and/or treats, and walks. He also has the cutest speckled nose and is so, so soft to pet.”
From Katherine: “The organization that rescued Hudson is called Petsaver-NC, based in Chapel Hill, NC. We aren’t completely sure of his breed, but the lady that we got Hudson from thinks that he’s an English Pointer-Border Collie mix, and any images I’ve seen of this combination look a lot like Hudson. He’s just a little over 1 year old, and we got him when he was about 10 months. I am SO glad that you want to reinforce the idea that rescue dogs make great pets. I couldn’t agree more! And now that we have Hudson, I can’t imagine ever getting a dog any other way than through rescue adoption.”
When we went to meet him for the first time, he already had a name–Scrappy! Ha! We changed it to Hudson, named after the Hudson River since we just moved from New York City down here to North Carolina. Hudson brings us so much joy, I can’t even describe it. He still has puppy energy, but at the end of the day just loves to snuggle. In fact, I think he values getting his belly rubbed over any treats.”
You can see more of this delightful anniversary session on Sarah’s blog. Follow Sarah Der Photography on Facebook, I think she might have a clause in her contract that all couples have a incredibly cute dog.
