I have to say – I was so excited when I found out what this week’s theme for Project 52 was. Bridges! How cool is that? I was thrilled to make a day trip out of exploring my area in search of the perfect bridge. And even more than that – I was incredibly excited to work with the two gorgeous models that I had specifically picked out for this shoot. If you haven’t yet met my gorgeous fuzzy niece and nephew – you’re about to. Simba and Nala were exactly the perfect pair for this kind of adventure. They are sweet, wonderfully well-behaved (if not the tiniest bit rambunctious) and of course – outrageously good-looking. So, it was off to my brother’s house to pick up the waggly fuzzbutts and onto a magical quest in search of our bridge!
For days before this shoot, I had googled and googled and endlessly googled bridges in my area – heck, even my entire state – and had such a hard time finding anything that I really loved. I gotta tell ya – it’s hard to search for parks by what kinds of small bridges they may have laying about inside of them. So all I knew for sure is that I’d have two hyperactive, overwhelmingly adorable puppies by my side and, on a hope and a whim, we’d somehow make the best of it. Well, the day couldn’t have gone more perfectly. Not long after driving around, we stumbled upon the most perfect bridge on the campus of a quaint New England college. We had the time of our lives running around like crazies – playing, jumping, collecting sticks and of course photographing. I couldn’t have done it without my two puppy wranglers – my wonderful boyfriend Sam and our amazing friend Haley. (thanks guys! :))
So without further ado, I present to you – Simba and Nala and our happy bridge!
I hope I prepared you accurately for their cuteness. It’s overwhelming, I know. 😛 They are the physical manifestation of pure sunshine and joy. And for the ability to know and infinitely love this perfect pair – I am absolutely the luckiest.
(Also, the bridge wasn’t too bad either.)
Now head on over to the talented Melissa McCabe at Unleashed Pet Portraits to see what kind of bridge she found! (And hopefully the gorgeous pups that come with it!)
