I had the best time with “M”, her awesome mom, and their sweet Brittany Spaniel!  M is graduating from Kaneland High School soon, and we did her senior photos at LeRoy Oakes in St. Charles.  When they asked if they could bring their sweet pup “D” along for a few photos, I was thrilled!  I wish I could have had my dog in my senior photos, but we didn’t have awesome outdoors sessions back then.  I’m so glad her best bud was able to join us at the beginning of our session.  And, D had on a Cubs collar, so I knew we’d be friends immediately!

As a member of the tennis and soccer teams, as well as student council, M is a very involved senior at Kaneland.  And, one of her hobbies is photography, so it was awesome that she brought her camera with and we were able to incorporate a few shots of her with it during her session!  As a photographer, I absolutely loved that!  I can tell she has a good eye for photography, too!

Things to bring when you have a dog at your session: his or her favorite treats, anything that might get their attention such as a favorite toy, their collar and leash (this is a must), and a sense of humor because they will undoubtedly make us all laugh at some point!  This sweet pup stayed with us for the beginning of the session, then dad came and picked him up, which was perfect so he didn’t get too bored.

Thank you, M, and your mom for letting me capture some great memories during your senior session.  It was great to spend a fall evening getting to know all of you, and I wish you nothing but the best as you finish your senior year!
