I am definitely not a wedding photographer, but I couldn’t say no when a very close friend needs photos for their Save the Date card before they could book their wedding photographer! Darra and George recently got engaged, setting a wedding date for Feb. 3, 2018, so I helped them out with an engagement photo session by Quarton Lake in Birmingham.

As you know, I’m a Michigan pet photographer so I don’t typically focus on human portraits. That being said, I am happy to take family photos when the fur kids are included! Below are some images from a beautiful family session I did in Mt. Pleasant. The lighting that evening was truly magical, creating a lot of gorgeous bokeh!

This wonderful family had a Golden Retriever named Penelope (Nellie for short) and a Labrador Retriever named Tucker!

Bexley was having a hard time during the session because what 1.5-year-old wants to be stuck in mom’s arms trying to smile for a camera? She had some fun when their wagon came out!

Eight-week-old Jack’s photo session came one day after he was adopted by his parents from a rescue in Chesterfield. Little Jack is a German Shepherd/Collie mix, and he was literally the sleepiest little pup I have ever met at that age!

Did you know that we offer a special package called the Puppy’s First Year? Your puppy will change SO much between the time you bring him/her home and that first birthday. For some breeds, it’s just a change in size. For others, it could be a change in the coloring and fur in addition to size. With this package, I will do four different sessions with your dog over the first year to capture all those physical changes as well as your pup’s little quirks over that first year.

Bentley’s grandma won an auction package from Christy Schulte Photography at the Humane Society of Livingston County‘s Fur Ball event. She gifted the complimentary package to her daughter, a vet student in Ohio. We did the session at Island Lake Recreation Area in Brighton when she was in town for the week. Her Border Collie, Bentley, is a very well-behaved rescue, who loves to adventure with his mom!

I was thrilled with the opportunity to photograph beautiful Lacy of Instagram fame (@goldenlacy). We held her session at a park in Sterling Heights as the sun was setting, which created this gorgeous bokeh, to capture some colorful images of Lacy in all her glory!

I like to perch dogs on a picnic table or bench at some point during their session to give a different height and look to the dog. Lacy rocked it on this park bench!

At the end of the session, we came across a doe and her two fawns. We couldn’t believe our eyes that the loud noises of the bikers and families walking by didn’t scare them off!

If you are interested in booking a session with Christy Schulte Photography and capturing beautiful images of your dog or horse this fall, please contact me today!
