I was so pumped when Shantel contacted me about setting up this session at the pumpkin patch in Country Apple Orchards. She and Neil wanted to get some photos with their new dog, Ari, a very cute and spunky mini golden doodle.
Ari was so excited to explore the orchard! So many new smells and things to see, so it was fun to try to keep his attention and sitting in one spot long enough for pictures. He definitely had plenty of puppy energy! He had such a cute personality.
It was a cold and windy day when we scheduled this session, but Neil and Shantel rocked this session and braved the cold. The great thing about the cold weather is that we had most of the orchard all to ourselves, which worked out great! We didn’t have to work around a lot of other people, which was so nice. I was a little bummed that the sun didn’t come out at sunset, but the overcast sky looked great and allowed us to get some great photos with even lighting! Shantel also did an awesome job of picking out their outfits! The colors fit with the orchard and I got all the fall vibes with the rust colored dress paired with Neil’s green sweater.
I had so much fun with this little family and I can’t wait to have them again!
