Ambassadogs: Peggy's Cove

September’s group session with my 2018 Ambassadogs was at Peggy’s Cove! I don’t go there very often, so it’s always nice to enjoy a beautiful evening right on the water and away from the city.

They practiced posing on benches, docks, and big rocks. And our backdrops included colourful buildings, boats, the lighthouse, and that gorgeous sunset. This was such a fun session!

Here are some of my favourite photos from that evening! They definitely have an east coast feel :)

Diesel - Frenchie Cuteness Overload!

I absolutely love how all the connections I’ve made over the last few years in business have all intertwined and led to even more connections!

Back in 2015 I photographed a very sweet French Bulldog named Maple, and got along well with her wonderful mum. I didn’t cross paths with her again for a few years, but then discovered she works at Planet Paws! She then enrolled her new pup, Bismarck, as one of my Ambassadogs in 2017 so we got to catch up again and I found out that her dream of becoming a French Bulldog breeder was finally happening for her. So exciting!

Through the Ambassadog program that year she connected with one of my other wonderful clients, who then ended up bringing one of the puppies from that first Frenchie litter home. That puppy was Dante, who is an Ambassadog this year!

And just last month, one of Dante’s littermates, Diesel, had his very own Wet Nose session!

I hope I didn’t lose you with that story and the various connections! But it’s so cool to see how small and connected this dog owner community is here, and how many wonderful people and dogs I get to meet (and photograph)! I feel so lucky and so happy to be doing what I do.

Alright, and without any further ado, I want to show you some of Diesel’s portraits from his session at Fisherman’s Cove! He’s only about 8 months old, but he was a fast learner and got right into his modeling career. Check him out!

Azalea + Leon: Dog Photography at Peggy's Cove

On a beautifully warm summer evening last year, I headed out to Peggy's Cove to meet up with Azalea, Leon, and their mum for a special East Coast photo session. Their mum wanted something that was quintessentially Nova Scotia so that she would have these photographs of her dogs to look back on, if someday their adventures took them to a new province.

Peggy's Cove was the perfect choice!

Azalea the Boston Terrier is full of sass, and Leon the Pug is deaf and nearly blind... so they make a unique but very loving duo. It's adorable to see them together (you should follow their mum's account on Instagram, too! @saltydog.petsitting).

We started off near the small, colourful houses and shops, and then finished the evening on the rocks with the lighthouse in the background. We did not go anywhere near the black rocks! Not even close.

This session was mainly for Azalea, as she is one my Ambassadogs for the 2017-2018 season, but Leon was there to show his support, and I couldn't not include him in a few portraits!

What is your favourite place that feels perfectly "East Coast"?
