Dogtober Fest 2022 Winners!

If you're looking for heartwarming and timeless portraits of your furry friends, look no further! Recently, I had the pleasure of photographing the prize drawing winners of last year's Dogtober Fest in a beautiful park near Lee's Summit. The bluebell flowers and wonderful lighting provided the perfect backdrop for these cute pups and their lovely family.

In particular, Allen, Piepie, Audrey, and Valentino stole my heart with their unique personalities and love for each other. Even Audrey, the elder pup with a heart condition, never lost her spirit. We made sure to take plenty of breaks for her to stay cool in the heat, while I loved capturing Valentino's playful and fun-loving nature in these adorable dog pawtraits.

As a Lee's Summit photographer, I believe that pets are family and deserve to be celebrated in timeless family portraits. Whether your dog is young or old, it's never too late to capture their unique spirit and personality in stunning photos. So if you're looking for a special way to immortalize your furry friends, consider booking a session with me and let's create some beautiful memories among the stunning bluebell flowers.
