When we first started visiting our current church, these kind souls were some of the first to welcome us with open arms and make us feel included. Pretty soon we found ourselves in the same small group, then a couple years later practically neighbors, both buying our first homes in Maumelle. Daniel and Shelby are just fantastic people – we always enjoy being around them! Shelby has a heart of gold when it comes to all things animals, and I’m pretty sure if the world had more people like her it would be a much happier place! And Daniel, well, he (I think secretly) loves animals too, even though he and my husband bond over hunting them.
A couple weekends ago, we met up for a super quick mini-mini-mini session to capture some Christmas Card photos. They were sure to include their #1 pup, Koda, and he seemed eager to please his people and put on a happy face.
The day we took these was a dreary, rainy one, but I love how the clouds made the colors pop. Their outfits were perfect for the season, and even Koda wore a festive bib. Koda may be tiny, but his personality makes him appear much, much bigger. I think it’s safe to say he’s a true member of their family, and I loved seeing how well behaved he was.
Here are my favorites from our session – enjoy!
