Golden Retriever Topsy

I know this sweet 7 year old girl. Her name is Topsy and recently I got to photograph her.

Her mom and I became friends because of a dog, my black lab Buddy. Buddy, my heart dog and the reason why I got into photography. That dog. My special boy.

Topsy’s mom Laurie was Buddy’s foster back in 2008 and when we adopted Buddy, Laurie and I became friends because of our love for dogs.

Many of you know that I have a dog walking business too ( For several years, I walked Topsy daily while Laurie worked so I got to spend a lot of time with her. I got to fall in love with her.

I was thrilled when Laurie reached out to me to schedule a session for Topsy.

We had the best time and Topsy’s smile is infectious. Capturing it was a blast!

She’s also a funny girl. She had us laughing a lot.

Topsy is a kisser. She will full on, tongue in the mouth kiss you if you let her.

As a dog photographer, I am usually on the ground taking pictures and on more than one occasion, Topsy pulled her mom over to me so I could be lavished in her kisses.

She is the sweetest pup ever and I really love her. And I love her mom too… dog people are just good people, right?

Here are some of the photos I took.

Providing you with precious photos of your precious pup. That’s what I love to do.
