Samantha Turns 30

When Samantha first floated the idea of this session to me mid-last year, I was a little too excited.  One, because Samantha and I are both crazy dog ladies, and she has the most incredible collection of animals.  Two, because, you know; cake!

When you invite us to your place for a session, and you live on a property, prepare to do a bit of exploring.  We are also not against taking refreshments, or even including them in the images.

Samantha proved that cake smashes aren't just for kids.

Samantha's right hand ladies are Abbie & KJ.  Abbie has some modelling experience, as a previous #bmtmodel (for Barking Mad Treats).  Although during this session, Abbie was less interested in modelling, preferring a good old chase of the ball.

KJ stepped up, and was more than willing to show just how well she was willing to work for treats.

We couldn't let Abbie and KJ have all the spotlight.  Rosie the pup, and Huey & Luey (the goats) came and joined the party, along with some chickens and ducklings.

I'll end on my very favourite image from the session; a girl with her best girls.
