Keana & Ken Floyd Maternity Photo Session

Let me start off with saying I am sharing this post extremely late. The little bundle of joy that is in the mom’s tummy recently turned a year old! Yes, I am over a year late. Sigh. Anyways, I always say better late than never. Well not always, but it fits for this occasion since I will soon be sharing photos from the little ones first birthday session.

If you aren’t aware already, I love photography. Any photography really, be it nature, portraits or families. I dabbled in a little professional photography for awhile but I found that the market in my area was over saturated and decided to take a different path. I still take photos for family and friends and enjoy doing so immensely.

I’ve known Keana ever since she was born (I now feel old) and she has turned into a wonderful young lady.¬† She and her boyfriend Ken Floyd make the most adorable couple. Also, I know they are going to make great parents because as mentioned earlier Miss Nyla just turned a year old! So, I kind of have first hand knowledge. ūüôā

Now it’s time to share some of my favorite photos from their maternity session.

Until next time,

Easter Photo Session

I enjoy doing many things and one of those things is photography!  I recently did a Easter photo session for a friend of her kids and they turned out really adorable.  Miss Sugar, who is my daughters super sweet and fluffy bunny joined in on the fun.  The kids really enjoyed holding and petting her. Here are a few highlights from the day.

Jasper’s Puppy Birthday Party

My sweet Jasper turned a year old and I did his birthday photos, which you can see in my previous blog post, but we also had a little puppy birthday party for him!  His aunt, pup cousin and grandpa came to help celebrate.

I made a few party decorations for him that turned out pretty cute. I made the “Happy Birthday” banner you see in the photos below, colorful pennant banner and paw print napkin rings. Also, I made him his own birthday party hat and I can’t forget about the party balloons. Every birthday party needs party balloons. I should have the birthday banner and a few other matching instant download birthday coordinates in my shop soon.¬† It’s just a matter of getting pictures and getting them uploaded.

I can’t forget to mention that we even had pupcakes to help celebrate the occasion. They have peanut butter, honey and carrots. If you would like to make your fur baby some you can find the recipe below.

I love this sleepy puppy face so much! He needed a nap after such a busy day!

Pupcake Recipe (Makes 12)
1 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
1 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 cup of shredded carrots
1 banana
1 large egg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Frosting
1 – 8oz low fat cream cheese
1 cup of peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Line a cupcake/muffin tin with 12 cupcake liners. Place all ingredients into bowl and mix until mixed together.  Spoon evenly the mixture into the cupcake liners. Bake in oven for 15 minutes or until a inserted toothpick comes clean.

Frosting: Place cream cheese and peanut butter into bowl and mix together until mixed together. Place frosting into piping bag with large star tip and pipe on to the pupcakes. Decorate with your dogs favorite treat.

These may not be too appealing to the human guests but the dogs love them! You can store any leftovers in a freezer bag for up to a month. Remove and thaw before giving to dog.

Until next time,

Happy First Birthday Jasper! | Dog Birthday Photos

If you weren’t aware, my family and I¬†have a lovable and an oh so cute shih tzu named Jasper. We got him when he was 9 weeks old and he just turned one¬†on January 24th! I can’t believe he is a year already. I can believe though how much we¬†have fallen in love with him. He really is the sweetest and gentlest dog.

I never thought of myself as a “crazy dog lady” before. Well, that was before I started planning¬†birthday photos and a small family birthday party for our Jasper. So, yeah, I guess I can now be considered a “crazy dog lady”. Oh well, I kind of like it.

Here are a few photos of his first birthday photo session that I took. He had no clue what I was doing but realized that treats were going to be involved so he put up with my shenanigans. Brace yourself for the cuteness overload that you are about to see!

What does someone who makes birthday chalkboards do when their puppy turns a year old? Make him one of course! Here he is with his very own birthday chalkboard. (If you are interested in one for your puppy or your own child then you can check out my birthday chalkboard designs in my shop Simply Dovie.)

Dog First Birthday Photos

Here he is with his most favorite toys, his brown bear and his stuffed marshmallows! We received the marshmallows in a Barkbox in December. He carries them around everywhere with him, even outside.

He even got his very own pupcake! Keep an eye out on the blog as I soon will be making a post with the recipe on how you can make your fur babies some pup cakes too!

He really liked his pupcakes, if he had fingers and could talk, I bet he would say they were finger licking good! I told you he was adorable and I hope you enjoyed Mr Jasper’s¬†birthday photos!

Until next time,
Dovie
