It was a beautiful afternoon for a family photoshoot. The location chosen was a nearby park in Nutley, NJ. Nutley is such a beautiful town! I had the pleasure to photograph this young couple, Nicole and Christo who are relatively new residents of Nutley. They are loving their new town. When we booked the photo session, Nicole told me “I want to do the photos at the park, I walk my dog there everyday and I love that park. Oh and I want some pictures by the waterfall too.” She knew the location well. I actually knew it too, I lived in Nutley for 7 years! And yes indeed, it would be a great location for the photoshoot.
Nicole and Christo love animals and they also love giving back to the community, so they started volunteering at the Bloomfield Animal Shelter located in Bloomfield, NJ. What a nice way to get acquainted to a new neighborhood. Kudos to them!!!
The very first day they volunteered at the shelter they saw a beautiful grey Pitbull puppy. The puppy had just been neutered. He was in a small crate with a huge cone in his head and kept staring at them the whole time. She said his tail was going a mile a minute, he wagged it so hard that it was bleeding. Literally!!! Poor baby he was very happy to see them. He probably knew something they didn’t know yet. Well, needless to say it was love at first sight, for both dog and humans!
Nicole and her boyfriend, Christo decided they were going to adopt the grey pitbull puppy. At the shelter they had named him Bullet,because of his color and high energy level. The couple thought the name was perfect. They thought it fit him and his personality, so they kept the name.
Bullet is a very friendly dog. He loves saying hello to everyone he meets, people and dogs. Nicole says, “he just wants to play with everyone, and I feel sad when people stereotype against the breed.” Se continued,”He is a very good dog”. Yep I totally agree, he really is good boy! He wanted to play with me and get belly rubs during the photo-shoot. He made me laugh because I think he might think he is a lap dog lol. Too funny! What a sweet dog!!!!
I am so happy that Nicole and Christo have found the perfect dog for their family, and what a beautiful family they are. I am also thrilled to have had the opportunity to create these beautiful memories for them to cherish for years to come. I truly believe that dogs are much more than pets, they are family!
Thank you for reading it! Until next time,
All you need is LOVE, and a dog!
