savannah + ginger: bayview beach – a girl and her puppy

Last summer we were contacted by a mother whose little girl was about to celebrate her 5th birthday. We were delighted to find out that they were going to surprise her with the cutest little cocker spaniel puppy and that they wanted us to capture this special moment in their daughter’s life. The story of how they surprised little Savvy with her puppy gift is another blog story in itself. Their dad, Josh, a talented graphic artist and their amazing mom Brooke, planned an incredible Scooby Doo themed party for her complete with wooden stand up Scooby Doo figures and custom invites. And these cool props were created by Josh!

We planned on meeting them over at Bayview Park so we can spend the afternoon capturing Savannah’s sweet personality and documenting with our cameras her afternoon with cute little Ginger.

There was a magical bond between our cameras and Savvy that day. She was completely comfortable in front of our cameras and we were able to capture some amazing images of her cute little 5 year old personality.

Here are some of our favorite shots from the day:

Don’t you just love these puppy dog eyes? And Savvy’s expression here is so adorable!

What a gorgeous little girl! She just knew how to smile, how to pose. She required very little coaching from us. We were just delighted to work with her.

We brought some Calla Lillies that day, Savvy took them and ran off to play in the beach…

Savvy’s face reminds me of someone from the Victorian era. She just has this beautiful classic face.

The quality of light that afternoon was just incredible.

And finally, here’s Savvy and her sweet little puppy Ginger. Ginger almost looks unreal…what an unbelievably cute little red haired pup!

Have a great 5th year Savvy and have a fun Kindergarten year too! Thanks again Brooke & Josh for spending that afternoon with us and allowing us to be a small part of your beautiful family’s life. We really enjoyed getting to know you.

    We had such a good time and it was such a pleasant experience working with you. We have a whole lot of beautiful pictures to hang in our house now. We had a great location, great lighting, and a cooperative little girl, but all the credit goes to a photographer who is good with kids and takes incredible pictures. Thank you so much!

    Talk about the BEST photographer’s in the business!!!! The first time we met Toni and Joe we were in love with their down-to-earth, sweet dispositions. The took a very high energy 5 year old AND a high energy puppy and captured amazing photos. We not only feel in love with the beauty of the work they did, but with our interactions with them. They are not just photographer’s, but they are truly devoted to getting to know their subjects. They went above and beyond when they showed up for the photo shoot with a birthday gift for our daughter. We feel blessed to have met such caring people and are proud to display the stunning photos they captured of our daughter and her puppy. Hats off to very committed photographer’s that are bursting with talent. This was the best photo shoot I have ever been too. Thanks Toni and Joe. We will see you again most definitely!
