Engagement Session

It's time to book your engagement session! Engagement sessions are my favorite! Better yet they are complimentary for all of our couples. It's another way for us to get to know one another in a stress free environment and spend time together before your wedding day. By the time your wedding day is here the two of you will be pros and you will know exactly what some of my favorite cue words are like "Nuzzle or forehead to forehead."

OUR TOY POODLE, CUDDLE BUG, & PRINCESS

Sophie was our first baby that we brought home 8 years ago. I think this photo says it all on exactly how she feels about all the recent additions to our family! She is our little protector who barks way too much, loves to sleep and cuddle in our laps, and drinks fresh water from a cup daily.

Denali is our 4 year old husky who we brought home on a whim. She was the best not planned decision we ever made. She is so unbelievably loyal and great with the kids. She bursts with energy and has such a strong personality. Oh and we didn't realize exactly how well behaved she was until we brought home our second husky Aulani

OUR SASSY & SILLY & LOVEABLE 
SECOND HUSKY 

If there was one great thing that happened in 2020 it was our adorable quarantine puppy Aulani who just so happens to be a half sibling of our older husky Denali. Named after the Disney Aulani Resort in Hawaii she has such a fun and goofy personality. I can never turn my back on her for more then a minute but she is the sweetest girl ever. I will forever be thankful for some down time last spring because without it I do not think we would have her.

OUr Playful & Mouthy Energetic Third Husky 

I always planned on getting a third husky. In fact Matthew made me a bet in regards to getting a third one. However we had not planned to get another one quite this soon. But this sweet girl fell into our laps and needed a home now. Of course I couldn't say no and I am so happy we didn't she is the sweetest girl and is loving her new life with her fur sisters and of course her human siblings as well. She has adjusted quite nicely and we are so happy to have her part of our pack!
