lauren + chad (and sadie) // carmel portrait session

In case you missed it, I’m a big dog person.

Read all about it in my Christmas Hill family portrait session, but this Carmel portrait session was all about the dog. Sadie is a super sweet, super soft, super spoiled Golden Retriever who is a total puppy at heart. From the moment we met, our hearts were linked. Sadie became my best friend that day, and her parents, Lauren + Chad, were all about giving her the spotlight. And boy does she own the spotlight.

Sadie had multiple “outfits” for this Carmel beach portrait session. Like any diva, Miss Sadie just laid back on the rocks at Carmel beach under the setting sun while her servants changed her flowers and pet her. Sounds like the life to me. If I could lay back on Carmel beach while people brushed my hair and rubbed my back, I’d be aaaaaalllll for it. Any takers?

Lauren and Chad are two of the coolest people I know—such incredible entrepreneurs and business people as well as in love and all in. You know I love me some in love and all in. Lauren with her sweet spirit and stunning smile and Chad with those intelligent glasses and confident gaze… they both completely melt for their girl, Sadie, and it’s the sweetest thing. Chad is totally obsessed with his dog. It didn’t take long for him to find a stick to throw for her and Sadie went chasing after it into the beautiful turquoise water at Carmel beach.

It’s not often I photograph dogs, but when I do, it’s really special and fun. Sadie’s Carmel portrait session with her gorgeous parents is one that will always have a special place in my heart.

Check out some of my favorites from Lauren + Chad’s (and Sadie’s) Carmel portrait session below and let me know what you think!!!

    You are the sweetest, and reading this melted my heart. What other dog gets as many outfit changes and personal attendants as Sadie? 🤣 She adores you! As do we 😘
