I love it when clients come to me and want to surprise someone they love with a pet portrait session!  I always think to myself “what a wonderful gift” – I know I’d love it if someone ever did that for me… hint hint, Brian.  So when Marty + Stewie’s dad contacted me earlier this month, I was really excited to work with him to create something special for their mom.

Stewie + Marty are both tri-colored Shih Tzu’s – Stewie is the darker of the two and also the older gentleman at 7 years old.  Marty is the lighter pup and only 3 years old.  Stewie was definitely quick to warm up to the camera while it took Marty a little more time to get used to me rolling around on the ground with them.  It was all worth it because we were able to grab some fabulous photos of them and I hope that their mom is thrilled with her Christmas gift!  Here are a few of my favorites from their session…

First up is Stewie.  Isn’t he just the cutest?  I absolutely love their little sweaters too – adorable!!
