family dog included in maternity photos | the ‘first baby’

A couple’s dogs ‘before kids’ often have a very special place in their lives. Many times, that special dog is referred to as the ‘first baby’, and it’s only natural to include them in some of the pictures if they’re comfortable with it. Of course, I’m a stranger to them and just setting up lights, etc. is stimulating and new. So, sometimes they’re just a little too excited to stick around for a picture. When they do, though, it’s so sweet! Here we included their beautiful golden puppy, not even a year old, and I love the results:
