One of my favorite things about dogs is how they live in the moment. Watching them romp joyously through the fresh snow reminds us to appreciate the simple, clean beauty around us – even if we’re not frolicking quite like they are. Photographing dogs can be tricky, and I find it’s best to let them explore their new surroundings before asking them to settle in for portraits. On this day, the pups bounded through the deep snow for a bit, and then snuggled in on the bridge over the Rapid River for some photos. As they leaped off for some more snow racing, Mom and Dad huddled for a few portraits of their own. We all marveled at the perfect Michigan winter scenery, the dogs had a blast playing in the fresh air, and we captured some marvelous memories!
