Good Golly Miss Molly

Colorado Dog Photography

I am forever grateful to this dog and her parents. Her name is Molly aka "Good Golly Miss Molly." She is an Australian Labradoodle and she lives in Denver CO. She might even be a bit famous. She has her own Instagram page: @mydoodlemolly with over 3k followers! That counts as famous in my book. You should check her out.

When I posted a note on my @barkography Instagram page that I was going to be in Denver in May, Molly's mom reached out to me and booked a session. She suggested a few locations, I did some research on her suggestions and we decided upon Coyote Song Trail near Littleton. Literally when I landed in Denver, I picked up my rental car and headed for Coyote Song Trail to check it out.

Later that evening I met up with Molly and her mom and dad. Her parents describe her as a happy-go-lucky, curious little girl and I couldn't agree more. She was engaging, playful and funny. She had me laughing before long and I knew I was going to have the best time ever.  

The Coyote Song Trail is a surrounded by sandstone rock formations and has great views of the valley. I could've taken every shot with a wide angle lens so I could include all of the amazing scenery in my images. 

As the skies started to turn dark, we decided it was time to leave. As we were walking down the trail out of the park, the coyotes in the nearby hills started singing. I'd never heard a coyote sing before. I actually didn't even know they sang. I didn't know what it was at first because it was unlike any sound I'd ever heard. It was singing. It wasn't howling or barking. It was a song and it was beautiful.

Then reality kicked in and I asked Molly's dad how far away he thought they were. I am sure I picked up my pace a little then even though he assured me they weren't close. This trail is aptly named that's for sure and I couldn't have written a better ending for our day. 

To say I was falling in love as I drove through the CO countryside on that Sunday morning to this trail is an understatement. To say I completely fell in love during this photo session with Molly is a fact.

I photographed Molly on my first day in the Denver area. On day 2, I photographed a dog named Sierra. I met Sierra's mom when I lived in southern California and volunteered with Lab Rescue of SoCal. I'll write about her session soon.

I am completely jealous of all of the photographers who get to photograph here all the time!

Good Golly Miss Molly!!
