Over the weekend we celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday and Valentine’s Day! This year for his birthday I made my main squeeze a gift basket with all of his favourite things. A bottle of Hendrick’s Gin, red wine, chocolate, Keg steak sauce, stemless wine glasses, a travel pillow, and a Jamie Oliver grilling guide.
To do something a bit more personal I asked our talented dog walker, Hayley, to take some shots of our baby, Ellie. I’m not picky nor did I have any standards whatsoever of what these pictures may turn out like. For anyone that knows our baby they know having Ellie sit still for a photo is an obstacle in itself. To be honest, I was hoping for all of Ellie in one frame, and Hayley went above and beyond my expectations.
Hayley sent me the photos and I couldn’t believe the amazing shots she captured of Ellie. My jaw dropped and I could barely contain my excitement. I was so happy I nearly cried. Yes, I’m a crazy dog owner who loves my girl like a child. It took everything in me not to show my boyfriend immediately. Instead, I sent the photos to all of our friends and family to show them the stunning pictures. I printed off plenty to give to our loved ones. We also decided to blow some up and have them printed on canvas.
Hayley took these gorgeous photos in our house after Ellie’s walk. If anyone in the Georgina area is looking for professional pet photography I highly recommend her. You can leave a comment below for her email address. Not only is she incredible with Ellie but these photos are something we will display in our house forever.
I’m hoping to invite Hayley over one day to have a family photo done, in the nicer weather of course. In the meantime, I am so happy to have these special shots of Ellie.
