If you have ever owned a dog, you understand that dogs are not just pets….they are family! They really and truly are. They fill our homes and hearts with so much love, and they shower their humans with unconditional love and affection. I have had the joy of photographing the Ewing family many times over the years since I first met Allison almost a decade ago when she signed up for a coaching session. And I love that their chocolate lab Bogart has been a part of almost all of those photo sessions!! Jason and Allison were foster parents for Bogart when he was just a year old. He was training to be a therapy dog, but then some hip issues meant that was no longer the course for his life. After initially fostering Bogart, Jason and Allison were then able to adopt him and become his forever home! And he has been loved and spoiled ever since. I love that the Ewing family wanted to do a lifestyle home session with their boy, celebrating his 13th birthday coming up soon. Bogart, you’re a teenager now! When I asked Allison what Bogart’s favorite things are, she said the one thing he truly loves that really is his favorite is Jason 🤣 And it’s true! Bogart’s eyes never leave Jason, and he follows his every move. Allison, you’re pretty great too though 😂 These sweet moments with Bogart and his humans warm my heart, and of course we had to let him celebrate his birthday with his own smash cake courtesy of Morty’s Munchies in Cuyahoga Falls. Happy Birthday to the sweetest chocolate lab, you are so loved Bogart!!
Here’s a walk down memory lane at some of my past photoshoots with Bogart and his family!
