Athena and Tigger’s Amazing Red Rocks Session
Hi Friends! Have you ever had a to-do list, blinked, months went by and you TOTALLY thought you had completed your to-do list just to realize you didn’t? So, here is my WAY overdue blog post on one of my all-time favorite sessions last Fall: our gorgeous and super fun pet photo session with Athena, Tigger and their pawrents!
We met this amazing family in a less-crowded (Tigger likes his privacy), but equally stunning, part of Red Rocks Park. Being late October here in Colorado, we still had gorgeous sunlight and a comfortably warm day. And of course, our backdrop was the stunning landscape of Red Rocks. I don’t think I have had a more smiley pair of doggies than Athena and Tigger. These two are clearly the heart and soul of this family and the love between them all was incredibly palpable. My heart was full from the second we met. Here’s a little bit about this adorable duo, as expressed by their momma before the session:
Tigger (the handsome boy with the adorable smile and bow-tie)
Age: Somewhere between 10 and 12
Breed: Staffordshire Terrier
Weight: 45 lbs
Likes: Cuddles, Being Picked Up, Baby Talk, Hammocking, Wearing Jackets
Dislikes: Being Surrounded, Strangers, Loud Noises
Other: I adopted Tigger from the pound in Lubbock Texas about 7 years ago. He looks very good for his age. Recently he has been getting nervous around crowds and strangers. He has been my baby from the beginning. He emotionally supported me through college and has been a wonderful dog. Him getting older is a big reason for wanting to get professional pictures. He has arthritis and signs of dementia.
Athena (@adventurepupathena on Instagram – the pretty girly with the amazing ears and smile)
Age: About 4
Breed: Mutt (All American Fence Jumper)
Weight: 75 lbs
Likes: Ball, Running, Jumping, Ball, Hiking
Dislikes: People Touching her Feet, Being Picked Up
Other: Ian and I found Athena about 3 and a half years ago (before we were married) as a baby. She was on the street and scared. We took her home and spent a few weeks looking for her family with no luck. She and Tigger got along so well right off the bat and she quickly became part of our family. She always keeps us laughing. She has a lot of energy, is very stubborn and loves to be in the middle of everything. She gets very easily distracted, especially by food.
How SWEET are these bios?!?!?
You can imagine how much fun we had on this session, but there’s really nothing that can express the fun, adorableness and incredible bond and love these four share better than the photos I was so lucky to capture that day. So without further ado, here are some of my favorite photos from Athena and Tigger’s two dog photo session. Hope you enjoy!
We wish these four all the happiness in the world!
