Trinity River Pet Portrait Session | Dopey and Monica


You can tell Monica loves her dog, Dopey, as much (or more) as any person in her life. She is always buying the best foods, providing him with vitamins, giving the finest care, and doting over him at every chance she gets. No doubt it was exciting to photograph their relationship and I hope you enjoy seeing it in their Trinity River pet portrait session.

“On October 25th, 2014 I picked up my best friend. I remember he was the last boy in his litter and him jumping and running over his sisters to get to me. He was such a goofy, silly boy that I knew the name Dopey would be the perfect name for him. Being the first dog of my own makes him especially dear to me. He is the perfect cuddle buddy and is always by my side, through the good and the bad. I hope to have him in my life forever.”

Monica and I happened upon some of the tallest, greenest grass I have ever seen. Obviously I was beyond excited to take their photos at this location. I told her at the start of our session to be herself with her best friend. Dopey smiled the entire time, so happy to be the center of attention with his mom. Every time I would pose them, I’d look at his huge pit bull smile and tell Monica to copy him. His happiness was contagious.

Between prancing through the grass, taking naps, and exchanging hugs and kisses, my session with Monica and Dopey was a joy. I’m convinced if more people loved like Monica and Dopey love each other, the world would be a better place.
