Sara & Bella | Boca Grande dog photography

I had another awesome session on beautiful Boca Grande last month with Sara and her Golden Retriever, Bella. Sarah’s mom, Rebecca, won the session at Southeastern Guide Dogs’ big Walkathon event in March, and when she told me she wanted to have both her daughters, human and dog, photographed, I couldn’t have been more excited. There is nothing like the bond between a girl and her dog! Bella is one of the prettiest Goldens I’ve met, and she’s extremely well-behaved and obedient for a young dog of one and a half. Well, until we got out to the beach. Once Bella hit the water, there was nothing we could do to keep her out! I couldn’t stop smiling as I watched her swim around, completely content to be in the water. Buddy could definitely use a few lessons from Bella!

Who doesn’t love a happy Golden smile? :)

The water really is this blue and beautiful!

Once we managed to get Bella out of the water, it was time for ZOOMIES!!!

I’m totally in love with these photos of Sara with Bella. Such a sweet bond. This one will definitely need to be printed BIG!
