Kandace and Tyler had a gorgeous evening for their Wildcat Creek sunset session! They brought along their pup, Snickers, and he miiiight have stolen the show. 🙂 I so recommend finding a way to make your photo session really feel like you, and bringing your dog along is such a great and fun way to do that.
Wildcat Creek Park is a secluded nature preserve in Lafayette. It’s magical in autumn. The park explodes with oranges, yellows, reds, and browns. Perfect for a fall photo session! You can walk several trails down to the creek, and meanwhile the cascading trees are great backdrops for a nature-filled photoshoot. The park is famous around here for the amazing picnic spots. That is to say, don’t be hesitant to bring a basket of your own or incorporate it into the shoot! Whatever the season, a Wildcat Creek sunset session is sure to fulfill a natural earthy style.
Plus, your dog will love to explore it!
I get asked often if it’s okay for a couple to bring their dog to their session, and the answer is always a resounding yes. I want to pet all dogs. Also, including a beloved family pet will make you cherish your photos even more for years to come.
When planning to bring your dog, there are a few things you should keep in mind to make everyone’s experience (including your dog’s!) a success.
Above all, taking the few steps above to maximize your pet’s comfort and prepare them for photos will help make sure your session is a success and keep you all happy.
Pro tip: you can make a date night out of your session and swing by Dairy Queen afterwards for some ice cream and a pup cup. Everyone deserves a little ice cream!
