The thing about being a photographer is that it is all too easy to miss documenting your own life. And even more challenging to create photos of you with your family. We knew we wanted photos with our Giant Schnauzer Max (we have tons of images of him, and tons of him with each of us, but very few with him and both Dave and I). We also knew we were not alone in needing photos with our beloved canine baby. Amy Hawkes of Click Imagery is a supremely talented photographer in the Boston area, and she has a fabulous furkid, Jaxon. So we proposed a trade.
On one lovely afternoon in June, we ventured to Wellesley College‘s beautiful gardens for family photography and then a bite to eat. And here we have a few of our faves from the session.
Amy and Jax, all smiles.
Love how Jaxon looks up at Amy. So expectant and attentive.
Amy has a great sense of humor. This one absolutely captures the amusement in her relationship with Jaxon.
Jaxon is a ball dog. And for those of you who have ball dogs, you understand the intensity involved.
Communicating about the ball.
A simple portrait of Amy’s best friend.
Dave was fascinated with Jax’s squirrel like tail. (I imagine this was because Max didn’t have one, but I can’t be sure.)
We left the cover of the trees for the warmth of the grasses. Jaxon has beautiful bright brown eyes.
Another thing about Amy, she’s a competitive runner and triathlete. So she and Jax often enjoy jogging together.
Oh and a super cute High 5 trick.
One last image, I think this is Dave’s favorite from the whole furkid session. So funny and whimsical.
Many thanks to Amy and Jaxon for spending the afternoon with us in Wellesley and being such great models. We love you guys!
Love it guys….great job (as always!) Such a fun memory & so psyched to have some pics of me & my lil furman together!!! XOXOX~A+J!
Cute photos! Love the “ball dog” photo, though Oscar sure isn’t one.
