Over the weekend I met up with Maria + Dan at Palisades Interstate Park for their engagement session. After talking with Maria for so many months over email it felt like meeting an old friend. Maria and Dan are easy going, smart, sensitive and funny. I was really looking forward to this session because they wanted to feature their pug Caramel, who is 13 years old. I’ve had a few couples choose to feature their pets this year, and being an animal lover myself, it’s something I really enjoy. Caramel did great, and was definitely ready for her glamour shots. She has a face that just makes you smile, and it’s clear she is so loved by her parents. As they pulled her through the park in a wagon, she had this expression on her face like she was saying “WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?!” She’s also going to be featured in their wedding, and I can’t wait to see what they have planned for her.
