How bloody excited was I when Serena from Pretty Fluffy booked her new puppy, Butterscotch, a 2019 Adorable Puppies diary photo shoot? VERY excited, that’s how much!

Butters is one of the best behaved subjects I’ve ever had. I was SO impressed.

Because he hadn’t had all his shots yet Serena asked if we could shoot somewhere with no risk of infection from unvaccinated dogs. Since they live in a very pretty home with lots of natural light it was the perfect location. They also have a three-year-old so I didn’t even have to bring any cute puppy furniture!

There was too much sun in the garden so we did indoor action photos. I hope this is still cute when Butters is fully grown and he remembers being rewarded for doing zoomies in the house, ooops!

That tuckered him out. Time for a quick recharge on the sofa.

My focus at a session is typically on the furry family members but I’m always open to including the humans in some photos as well. Wrangling the two leggeds can often be harder than the puppy but these gorgeous people nailed the shot in record time.

And just when I thought Butters was ready for a nap he took to the deck for some more posing and stick chewing. He sure knows how to turn on the cute.
