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!!

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!

Anniversary Photos by Kris Kandel Fargo Photographer | Jordan & Aaron

It’s a little bit early for their anniversary session since they were married last December, but we all agreed the fall colors were too good to pass up!

They had to include Truffles in their photos of course. This little 7 lbs of fluff was so photogenic, she kept looking at the camera perfectly!!

I love the last one in the series below, it reminds me of the scene in 101 Datamations where the dogs wrap up their humans, lol!

Happy Anniversary you two!! Always fun to reconnect and also meet your little Truffles! 😀

Roesch Family | Kris Kandel Fargo Pet Photographer

This session was pretty special for many reasons. Maria is my realtor who helped me to find my house this past spring!! She was amazing to work with (seriously if you need to buy or sell a house contact her!) and we got to be friends. We walked through some disastrous foreclosures, laughing at the holes in the walls and talking about my dreams for the right one which we found in May! So when she asked me a few weeks ago to take some family photos I was completely honored, and excited to meet the boys in her life!

Since two of her boys are beagles we decided to do their session in the back yard they were used to. It turned out to be so much fun! Just look at how cute they are with those ties on! Wyatt & Howie totally stole the show!

Just look at those big brown eyes. *melts*

Kisses! Or as I like to say, “Dog snog” – ok that totally just marked me as someone who watches too much British TV.

When the boys got resless we pulled out some treats and threw them around so they could find them in the grass. I just love the photo of Maria & Eddy watching their dogs. You can tell how much they care for them!

By this time the dogs were done. So we took 15 minutes for some photos of Maria & Eddy by themselves. I Love how they laugh together and look at each other!

Thank you for asking me into your home and to photograph these special relationships! I’m so honored! And thank you for your patience with me while looking for my home! You’re welcome anytime, bring the boys too! : )
I hope you enjoyed these personal favorites from your session. I’ll be sending the link to download them all next week!
