Last week we welcomed the sweetest golden retriever puppy home. Meet Atlas!! We fell in love immediately, as you can tell. We asked our favorite photographer, Alicia Lacey, if she wouldn’t mind taking photos for us. You may remember her from our wedding photos! Luckily, it wasn’t hard to convince her – obviously adorable puppies are always a photographer’s dream!! She said yes right away, and we started planning the details.
We took these at sunrise, and the forecast threw us for a bit of a loop with last-minute rain. While I did my hair and got my makeup done, it was already drizzling outside. We decided to move ahead, however. You never know what will happen, and sometimes rainy / cloudy skies are the prettiest!! As it turn out, we guessed correctly. A beautiful sky opened up for us, and the rain stopped just in time for photos. It ended up drizzling for just a couple of minutes, but we barely even noticed. It was simply perfect!
Despite Atlas looking like a complete angel in these photos, he was not quite as calm while we were taking them! He was so excited to be there he could barely sit still. But Alicia is so talented she captured him at just the right moments! It was quite a good lesson for me too – even when a session feels a little chaotic, magic is being captured. I tell my clients this all the time. Being on the other side of the camera is a little different, though! Alicia was also fantastic and reassured us that even though we had a wiggly puppy on our hands, she still got amazing photos. When we got the gallery, we fell in love with all of them! It was so hard to narrow down to this set for the blog.
Now if you don’t mind, I’m off to design our album and order some prints!! These obviously will be all over our home very soon. 🙂 Thanks again, Alicia!! We will be forever thankful for these photos.
