Fargo Pet Photographer Kris Kandel | Dogs & Cat’s Natural Backyard Portraits

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you know I’m a crazy dog lady! I love my Bokeh! We got to a dog club once a week. First we went through obedience, then the Canine Good Citizen program, and now we are working our way through the performance skills (tricks)! Well in many of our classes I would chat with Nikki while her dog Zucci (the all black one below) became one of Bokeh’s best friends, so we had them over to play in our yard. As we chatted about what I do as a photographer Nikki got excited and asked me if I would come to her home to photographer all her pets!! Of course I said yes right away. 😀

So I headed over to West Fargo and met her crew. It was the best! Any day that I can roll around the grass, get slobbered on, throw tennis balls AND get to photograph new furry friends is the BEST.

Cuteness overload coming in 3.2.1…

We even managed to get one with all 4 dogs!!

And then the cats came out for just a minute.

If you have pets that you want portraits of please shoot me a note, I’d love to meet them and catch their personalities in forever photos!!

Fargo Engagement Session | Ashely & Adam | Kris Kandel Photography

Ashley & Adam’s engagement session started off with an extra set of paws, little Loki!

The tall grasses and wind and clouds were so pretty!!

I loved how much these two could make each other laugh!

Aren’t the early summer wildflowers and grasses so pretty?!! Add in a fun couple and I’m just swooning over here.

 

Thanks so much for a fun engagement session! I hope you enjoyed these teasers, I’ll be sending over the full link to your gallery soon!

Engagement & Pet session | Libby & Josh | Kris Kandel Photography

Libby & Josh’s engagement session started out including their two bulldogs! How adorable are they all?!

I really love the photo of the two dogs with the leash tangled up, it reminds me of 101 Dalmations matchmaking their humans. 🙂

 

One of the things I really love about Libby & Josh is how easily they laugh together. The joy these two have is something magical.

A quick outfit change and we headed downtown for the classic “Fargo theater” background.

 

I love walking around downtown Fargo and using spaces that I’ve never noticed before. Architecture and lines, alleys and interesting reflections. There’s always something new to discover!

I seriously can’t wait for their wedding, there two are just too much fun to photograph!

Family and Pet Photography by Kris Kandel | Keri & JJ | Fargo photographers

Do you remember Keri & JJ from their engagement session last fall? Well this fall I got to meet the rest of their family! I absolutely love working with people again, reconnecting and getting to see and hear how their lives have changed and grown since the last time we met!

What a good looking family!

Jessi the pup was so excited that she couldn’t contain herself, so we had a belly rubbing moment to help her settle and relax. Gotta love how happy she was!!

Beautiful family!

 Thanks so much for asking me to take your family photos this year Keri & JJ! It was awesome meeting the kids and Jessi, lets do it again next year. 😀

I hope you enjoyed these teasers, I’ll be sending you the link to download all the photo soon!
