If you know me, you know I have the biggest soft spot in my heart for bulldogs. My first dog of my own was an English bulldog and I thought she had ruined me for all other dogs. That is until a little wrinkled face with very large ears waddled into my life. My french bulldog, Remy, came from the loving arms of Joyce with Forever French Bulldogs here in Tallahassee. Some breeders simply produce puppies for profit, but with Joyce, my baby was loved and doted on from the moment he was born. Of course, his breeding made him so handsome and perfect, but it is the amount of love he received from Joyce and her family that made him the sweetest, snuggliest, most loving pup when I got him. When Joyce had the idea of me photographing her entire crew of Frenchies, of course my answer would be YES! What is more fun than a session of wiggling, snorting bullies!?
My name is Linda and I am addicted to bulldogs. Admitting you have a problem is the first step, right?? My first dog was a bulldog and she was the greatest dog ever. (Completely non-biased opinion here). Ever since, I go bonkers for any roly, snorty, chubby, wiggly bulldog. A bulldog puppy? Yeah… that’s like my version of crack!
So, when a good friend happened to mention that he was dog sitting a bulldog puppy… yeah… well… I puppy-napped the bulldog. In exchange for some snorty puppy kisses, I spent some time photographing Chipper here at the studio. I spent the rest of the time playing and snuggling, but at least there was a part of the day that was productive!
So brace yourself for the irresistible cuteness of Chipper the bulldog!
I grabbed my two crazy babies and our even crazier fur-baby for a quick session on the Pumpkin Patch portrait set last week. Its always a challenge to photograph your own children… especially when one is in the midst of his “terrible twos” and the other is a puppy. 🙂 Despite the chaos, we did manage to get a few of everyone together and a few fun ones of the boys alone! On another note, this has to be my favorite Pumpkins set we have done yet! Now to start thinking of the holiday set!
Its been almost two months since Bella, our bulldog, passed away. She was my first dog and such an amazing friend. We have definitely been feeling her loss in our family and the house just seemed empty without her. Even our other dog, Beau, has been lonely and out of sorts.
We made the decision to add another puppy to our family not as a replacement, but as a new friend who will find her own role in our crazy family. We also decided that she won’t just be a puppy to stay at our house, but we are hoping to make her a studio dog as well. So, she is joining us at the studio almost every day and keeping me company while I edit. We are hoping to train her well enough that she will be an assistant in some portrait sessions– at least in getting the kiddos to smile!
So, if you come by the studio anytime soon, be sure to ask to see her and please overlook her whining in my office while we do sessions! 🙂
