There is a reason Golden Retrievers are called “Golden”; if they are anything like Poppy, they are pure sunshine. Steven, Jen and Poppy were beyond delightful to photograph. They braved mosquitoes and jumped in the tall grass… Poppy had a blast through it all. The best part about this portrait session was the tremendously deep friendship we formed after it.

CLIENT: Poppy + pack

“It was just an immediate connection, we’ll have these photos forever and that makes Poppy timeless… so it makes us really happy. Booking a shoot with Bill and Nat was one of the best decisions my husband and I have made since we adopted our golden retriever, Poppy, last year. We wanted to capture her unique personality and the love we have for her – and for each other! Bill and Nat photographed us all with ease and intelligence, making our shoot feel more like a fun family outing than a structured session. The outcome was a collection of photographs that exude Poppy’s golden aura to perfection. We’ll treasure them forever and most definitely come back to Bill and Nat for more in a few years to document Poppy’s years with us. Additionally, my husband, a realtor, wanted some shots of him and Poppy together to use commercially for his marketing needs. Now when he walks Poppy around town, he is recognized by strangers and connecting with potential clients. They all want to meet the dog from his ads. Brilliant!”
