It’s not every day that you get to have a photo shoot on Lake Norman with three sweet and playful Labs. Not to mention, this was a special session meant mostly for the eldest Lab, Bailey.
Bailey is a 10-year-young yellow Lab with a checkered past. When he was younger, this poor guy was abused and left with a damaged knee and tail. Luckily, he has since found a loving home that care for him deeply. He also has a brother, Brother Bear, and sister (actually his long, lost niece), Tess, that have helped aid in his recovery. Bailey still has emotional scars that leave him shy and nervous around strangers – especially men with hats and baseball bats. Fortunately, with a slow introduction, Bailey warmed up to me nicely and we had a great session together.
Bailey’s parents love him like a child and wanted to ensure they got some great images of him “just in case” his age caught up with him. I can’t emphasize how important this is for every pet owner…these are memories that you will cherish forever. I hope Bailey will be around for many more years to enjoy the beach, swimming, tennis balls, sticks, and his wonderful family.
This is Brother Bear (notice how Bailey is never too far away)…
