It was Jaxon's first Christmas, and his mom's friend thought they would enjoy a Christmas-themed pet photography session. What a thoughtful gift! We headed over to Seneca Creek State Park in Gaithersburg, Maryland on an early December afternoon, set up a few Christmas sets, and then enjoyed the beautiful sunset... the best I've experienced at Seneca Creek as a pet photographer. Enjoy some of my favorite images from Jaxon's dog photography session! He is awfully adorable with his big brown eyes and Christmas sweater!
'Tis the season, so for the first set above, we packed up the two white birch trees and silver pumpkins that adorned the 1st floor of our Maryland photography studio to give this pet photography session a wintry theme.
But this second Christmas set below was my favorite of the two holiday sets for Jaxon's dog photography session. As with the birch trees, we took the mini-evergreens that were by the front door of our photography studio, along with some lime & red ornaments and glittery 12" candy canes to decorate the trees with. Jaxon's mom provided the gifts, and everything together makes a fantastic backdrop for Jaxon's Christmas pet photography.
Much as I love all the dog photography above, though, our pet portraits at sunset are the ones I most adore. The dramatic light and saturated warm colors of the sunset both in the sky and reflected in the lake make me say "wow, what an amazing pet photography session"!
