I’ve photographed many puppies and they are ALL adorable! I’ve never met a puppy that wasn’t stinking cute. Here are some of my favorites from my years as a puppy photographer in Denver.
Frances the Maltese Puppy was once described as a “Q-tip” and I suppose there is a resemblance! She posed on a simple Adirondack chair on her back porch. You don’t need a fancy house or special furniture for a pleasing pet portrait.
Boston Terrier Puppy
Bozley the 3 month old Boston Terrier puppy was very sweet and didn’t nip like most puppies. However, he did enjoy charging at me to lick my face and liked playing tug-of-war with my camera strap. Oh well, that’s a small price to pay for getting my puppy fix. He was as soft as a feather and weighed about as much.
It’s a lot of pressure coming up with the perfect name for a puppy. After all, you will say a dog’s name a million times during their lifetime, including literally yelling it out the back door. Bleu’s new family was having a hard time agreeing on a name for the 8-week-old until they were inspired by the color of his collar. His breeder had put different colored collars on each puppy in the litter so she could tell them apart. You guessed it… His collar was blue.
Now that Bleu is full-grown, he’s well over 100 pounds and still just as cute!
King Charles Spaniel Puppy
When I met Chelsea, she was 9 weeks old and only weighed 4 pounds. She has a black and tan coloring. King Charles have silky coats that come in 4 colors – Blenheim (chestnut and white), Tricolor (black, white, and tan), Ruby (solid red) and Black and Tan.
Golden Retriever Puppy
Roo did a very pretty sit-stay on the red chair. At only 11 weeks old, she was already a supermodel! This red chair is a very popular prop for puppy photo shoots since it shows the scale of the pup. A full-grown golden retriever wouldn’t fit in the chair but a baby golden will.
Just when I thought puppies couldn’t get any cuter, along came Clementine. She was an 8-week-old Pembroke Welsh Corgi. I love how she’s standing at the edge of the kitchen steps, checking out me and my camera.
We took a few of Bailey’s photos in a vintage Chevrolet Bel Aire. Pretty cute!
Silver Lab Puppy
It’s always an exciting day when a puppy joins his new family. I was lucky enough to document Desmond on his second day home. Like most puppies, he was either racing around at the speed of light or sound asleep. Puppies are either on or off!
French Bulldog Puppy
Petite little Avery was 11 weeks old when I photographed her. I love how she peeked around the grass. The tall step makes her look even tinier.
Sweet, little Kiva posed on her back porch. I think big, fluffy breeds make the cutest puppies!
