I’ve been so anxious to share this session! You might remember Rome’s story from this year’s Unconditional Love Contest. Although there were some great entries, as soon as I read Kori’s heartfelt submission, I knew I wanted to photograph this dog and capture Kori and Matt’s relationship with their baby. Rome loves the beach, so we decided to meet at Downs Park Dog Beach in Pasadena, MD. Rome was in his element, and every bit the playful, loving boxer I read about.
If anyone doubts that pets are like children, I point them to this picture. There’s something about it that I love. Mom and Dad fussing over the outfit, Rome with a slightly embarrassed look on his face (like he’s thinking, “Aww jeez, do I really have to wear the hat?!?”).
A family portrait…Who couldn’t love a face like this?
