Ozzie, his owner Lexei and I spent the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend exploring an area park in Northville, MI. Ozzie, an Australian Koolie, frequently goes hiking with his mom by parks near their house so it was only natural that we would try to photograph something that they love to do in their free time. I knew that it would be a fun session when the car pulled up with Ozzie’s head sticking out the window!

If I learned anything from this session, it is that you need to give Ozzie time to explore before trying to get him to pose for treats! 😉 He loved to run and scope out the next great spot.

We finished his session out on an open field where we caught the sun going down behind Ozzie. It was a wonderful evening with a dog that reminded me a lot of our own German Shepherd, Ripley. To see more adventures of Ozzie, check out his Instagram account at @superkoolie.

Last month, I met up with the cutest little furry friends, who are behind the adorable @PeakePups on Instagram, in Livingston County at an area park. The dynamic duo consists of Delilah, a 10-year-old Maltese/Chihuahua mix, and Riley, a 3.5-year-old Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix. Together with their mom, Lauren, we ventured around the park to capture a variety of photos.

Delilah & Riley

We first went to the start of a hiking trail at the park where the light was hitting the trail perfectly. Their mom was worried that Riley would be skeptical of me and this process, but he ended up being quite the model! As you can see below, Riley perfected his head tilt throughout the evening and modeled his fluffy tail! Delilah was not to be outshone by her younger brother and, after investigating the trail, plopped down in the perfect pose.

On our way back from the trail, we came across a picnic table where we perched both dogs for photos with the beautiful sun setting behind them.

As the sun was getting lower in the sky, we moved the Peake Pups out to an open field that had this beautiful, dreamy lighting.

We finished our evening together by Kent Lake to get a few shots with the beautiful water in the background where the dashing duo showed off their good looks!

I was so sad to end our session, as it was the perfect evening with these two munchkins. It was tough to resist putting six-pound Delilah in my purse!
