Boy + Girl + Dog ~ a Sneak Peek | Bay Area Dog Photography

from the Photo Lab

Take a boy from Petaluma, add a girl from Georgia and you’ve got a sweet love story; add on to that a Golden Retriever named Poppy, and a California sunset and we’ve got ourselves one of our favorite photo sessions ever.

Steven and Jen are newlyweds. Their little girl Poppy, named in honor of California’s state flower, made them a family.

One thing was certain during our shoot: Poppy LOVES to run.

She would oblige with a quick break to get a snuggle from her parents, we’d snap a few frames and off she went again.



This family is not only beautiful on the outside, they are incredibly kind and giving folks deeply involved in supporting their community. Steven is a bit of a local hero here in Petaluma, be sure to check out his most recent project, the Petaluma Kids Grand Fondo, for which we had the great pleasure of being sponsors of.

We thank our lucky stars for being able to do what we love most for amazing people like Steven and Jen, and of course to be able to spend time with extraordinary dogs such as Poppy 🙂

    Incredible photos Bill and Nat. That was such a fun relaxed natural photo shoot. We love our photos! Poppy sadly will not live as long as her parents, but these photographs will be with us forever. Best pet photographers around!
