While I was in New York photographing the horse inspections at Maplewood Warmbloods, I did a couple of smaller sessions, also. The first was with two dogs: Nibbles and Bilbo. Nibbles is a 7 year old pit bull and she takes her job as Chief Kisser very seriously. She is wiggly and happy and loves everything about life. She was recently diagnosed with Lymphoma and her owner, Erin, isn’t sure how much time she has left, so she wanted to get photos of her while she is still looking and feeling wonderful.

Her brown and white sidekick is Bilbo, who is about a year and a half old and is quite the opposite of Nibbles. He’s very shy and takes a while to warm up, but once he does, he’s got a cheeky and curious personality. The two of them are quite a pair!
