Our pets truly are a part of our family and I just love when families include their dogs for their family photos! The love that all family members have for their dogs really shows in the photos, and it adds another layer of emotions and fun to the session. Such was the case with this adorable family. Their family dog was the cutest old "puppy" that sure enjoyed running and playing with everyone, and I couldn't get enough of his sweet nature.

And speaking of sweet, let's just talk about litte miss with her precious curls and that tongue! Oh my goodness cute and she pretty much never put that tongue back in her mouth for the whole session! I was cracking up, and of course I had to warn mom and dad that their holiday cards would most likely have some tongue sticking out! They were of course totally okay with it since this was clearly her personality at this moment. And as you can see from the photos, there was no shortage of fun and smiling, and tongue wagging!

What a sweet and fun family and what a beautiful session full of golden sunlight and fall colors!
