cyd + nina {a girl and her dog}

I can’t tell you how thrilled I was when Cyd of The Sweetest Occasion fame, asked me to photograph portraits of her dog Nina.  Okay, I guess I can tell you… I was super thrilled!

Everyone who knows me, is very aware of my dog obsession.  I own three dogs myself.  As if that isn’t enough, I literally point out every dog I see to whomever may be keeping company with me.  By the way, that is not any kind of exaggeration.  Well meeting Nina, was no exception.  Not only is Nina such a good girl, this five year old black lab is quite the beauty…

Nina is also very affectionate.  She gives her family lots of kisses…

Of course, Nina is the target of much affection herself…

Like most dogs, Nina loves nothing more than to hop in the car and go to someplace fun like a great big park…

But sometimes her regal ways do subside, and she goes bonkers for rolling in the grass or chewing on a favorite toy…

Being a labrador retriever you know Nina loves water!  While she didn’t get to go in this time, she seemed happy enough to be sitting near it.  I was basically in Photography Heaven at this point.  I mean just look at this next series with the lovely Cyd and Nina, and that incredible sunset…

This is definitely a new favorite for me…

I confess by the time we were done with this fun day of shooting, Nina was ready to go home and go to sleep.  So a big thank you, to both Cyd and Nina, for all that you gave to make these great portraits… you are awesome!  xoxo, Alice

P.S.  If you are not familiar with Cyd’s blog The Sweetest Occasion, you will definitely want to check it out.  She posts all kinds of amazing ideas for weddings, birthdays, baby showers, and much much more!
